Attempted a Thanksgiving turkey project inspired by these Gobblers that Linus loves.
It should have been easy. I prepared everything during nap time. I drew the feather shapes and made the heads. I gathered the materials and set out the inspiration piece. I was ready...
But instead, it was a disaster.
Sometimes, I wish I had a little girl just to craft or color with. A little girl who wouldn't choose to run around flapping the crafting feathers, then smear glue on a few only when encouraged to decorate the turkey feathers, and state after a mere 3 minutes of crafting that she is "all done". When persuaded to color a few more feathers, a girl who wouldn't grab the black marker and scribble all over the paper and table, and then have to have said marker wrestled out of her hands to avoid any wall incidents while moving on to "cars".
But then again, if I had a girl I wouldn't have this little guy. And he is just about the cutest thing I can even dream up.
Lucky for us all, Daddy intervened with the calm and patience I had lost and our turkey project was salvaged.
