Today as I pulled out some paint and paper Elijah yelled, “Yay! This is what we get to do at friend’s houses!”
He couldn’t have said it better. It’s a special occasion for me to be crafty. I have never been the type of mom that planned out activities or had supplies on hand. Our craft box contains markers and crayons. No glitter. No glue. Those 2 are way to messy for a house I already can’t keep clean.
Typically, this is the extent of our arts and crafts.
We did paint today, and Elijah did have fun. But it got me thinking.
I’m a good boy mom. We don’t do crafts. We barely bake together.
But we do have fun…
We jump on the bed.
We play at the park.
We wrestle. A lot.
We laugh at the word stinky.
We play trains.
We play shark and lion.
We do boy things.
Who knows… maybe one day I’ll get to experience the joy of having a little girl. But for now, I have 2 boys and that suits me just fine.
