So.....once again.....a change of plans.
We decided to head to Hobby Lobby and just purchase some items to decorate a box with. It didn't have to have a theme, but if we thought of something while we were in the store, we would just go with it. I must tell you that this is out of the ordinary for me! I am messy, unorganized, and get on my own nerves! But......I MUST HAVE A PLAN!!! It drives me crazy when I don't have one! So, needless to say, I was a nervous wreck when we walked into that store two days before the box was due! I was literally having to talk myself down!
"Angie, this isn't your box, it's hers."
"Angie, don't be one of those parents that takes over their "child's" project."
"You can do this....she's 5. The box must look like a 5 year old did it. It won't be as "cute" if it is obvious that a 30 year old perfectionist did it!"
Yes...I am a perfectionist.
Which explains my messiness!
If it can't be perfect, I usually don't want to deal with it.
I am working on my perfectionism.
I really am.
So.. I began to let my "rules for the box" bury themselves, and Rylee and I had a GREAT time
picking out things for the box! We settled on a "theme" that was her idea and we had a wonderful time together decorating! I am proud of myself for following the teacher's directions of "helping your child", not "taking over your child's box!" I did all of the hot glue/Cricut/things kids shouldn't mess with stuff and Rylee did the rest (coloring, gluing, etc.) So....here is our box! I hope you like it:Our Flower Garden! I know, I know...it is far from the marker-decorated sack, but, hey it's a step in the right direction for me! Have a GREAT weekend.....we plan to!
