Advent Day 8 :: Tell, draw, or write something you like about each person in the family, originally uploaded by earthchick.
What a bust!
The boys were totally unenthused about this one. In fact, one of them actually started to cry when he pulled this activity out of the calendar! 😦 Not exciting enough, I guess.
Everyone chose to tell – not draw or write – and the boys were pretty nonspecific with what they had to say about each other and their father. They did a little better with me. Little Buddha said he liked that I had milk in my belly to keep him alive when he was a baby (okay, yeah, we aren’t clear on human anatomy yet). Tiny Dancer said he likes that I make him stuff out of yarn.
I couldn’t get any kind of reasonable shot of this failed activity. So I got this one instead, which is pretty representative of today: the boys fighting over who gets which ornaments when I die.
I’m sorry, but this just made me laugh. When I got to the fight pic, I laughed out loud. And felt a bit guilty for doing so. How lovely that you’re trying to do something nice and they’re dividing us the ornaments. I bet it made your day.
