For weeks and weeks, Laurie has been asking me to make things. Nope, I don't want to make wings, or a yo yo, or whatever it is. YOU make it, I tell her.
She's always begging me to cut paper a certain way, draw a button to her liking, or get her some string.
Finally, she wore me down, and I thought...why don't I just get this girl some beads? Surely this will quiet her detailed requests.
And it has! This week, she has been making bead (or as she calls them - bean) necklaces with minimal help from me.
I rarely buy stuff for my kids to play with, but there was a real void in my girl's heart and it was so simple to buy these "beans" for her. Who am I kidding? Really, they are for me....so she'll leave me alone.
Stephen (small) has enjoyed the them too. He made me this necklace for me, and I really love it.
The gold owl necklace was my mom's in college, and I love it too!
