C. says I am ruining my reputation as a "non-crafty" person. It does seem like having little ones brings out some elements of "craftiness" in everyone so while I am not fully embracing this part of my experience if I tell the truth I would say that I am enjoying it a tiny bit more these days. :-) We made these really neat crayons for Pollito's valentines and he hand wrote ALL of his classmates' names plus signed his cards. His letters are coming along so nicely after a complete lack of interest in letters or reading for much of this school year. I got inspired enough (and harassed enough) that I made an additional batch once all the kids had gone to bed so I could surprise them with a set of their very own heart-shaped crayon for Valentine's Day.
