I have been vigorously researching and pinning new craft ideas to help keep my burgeoning Picasso entertained. She loves to use her scissors, so this one looked super fun – a faux haircut! Great idea!
But after I spent 15 minutes meticulously cutting and gluing the hair for her to trim, my worst fear was realized when it took her not even 1 minute to snip it all off, then ask me “Now what?” Shit.
Ok sure, I may have been a bit lazy and didn’t have as much hair as the example, but I do not have the patience to cut and paste 50 paper hairs. Seriously – where do these crafty mamas find the drive?
Lesson learned. This scrap rainbow project had a much higher ROI. Sure, I had to help cut a bunch of little squares, but she spent a good 30 minutes gluing them on.
I used those precious minutes to urinate, wash 1 dish, and make my bed. Ahhh that feeling of productivity and accomplishment – how I miss it sometimes.
But I drew some pret-ty awesome clouds on the rainbow.
