I tried a ponytail on Mara the other day and just about died from cuteness sensory overload. The five minutes of cajoling and chasing and trying to clip her hair just-so was totally worth it. My fun girl also turned 9 mos recently AND took her first steps. For the most part, she is a very happy crawler and is taking her time with walking. GREAT. It’s the climbing that’s nerve-wracking for me.
When I’m not chasing Mara down or recovering from my efforts (baby = exhaustion), I still try to work on projects with the boys. The latest is this very cool bow and arrow DIY. Do you like the quiver DIY by my kids? Step 1: Slide arrow down the back of your shirt.
We took our “archery gear” to the park on Saturday, and I’m not kidding you, kids flocked to us like we were the Pied Piper but without lute music and deaths. As non-threatening as we were, it felt like we were babysitting stranger’s kids while they enjoyed their bbq because where were the parents?! The kids were very sweet and polite, but preschool young…and without parents! And it was a big playground. At one point (the point when I started to smell bbq seafood) I half-jokingly asked one of the kids to grab me a plate of food. No dice, because he told me to get my own food, ha.
