I am not going to lie, Shannon throws me for a loop with her backwards editions. I never know what question to ask that you readers will want to answer. (as a WFMW primer, backwards edition means we pose a question rather than share our brilliant tips). So this week, I turned to my hubby.
I am leaving this weekend to go lead worship at a women’s conference in my home town. That sounds way more impressive than it is. The fact is the church I grew up in is where I started singing and they still think I am the next Amy Grant waiting to be discovered. I am pretty sure they need to get out more. Actually, my mom is the speaker at the conference so we are kind of like some sort of dynamic duo (without the tights and cod piece). Anyway, they asked me to sing and who am I to turn down the opportunity to get a break from caring for my kids. Any by that, of course I really mean usher people into the Lord’s presence through song. In complete seriousness, I am very excited to go back “home”, see familiar faces and sing in the place that made me fall in love with singing and God in the first place.
So the hubby will be alone with the kids. He is actually brilliant with the kids (did I just sound British there? I just finished watching American Idol and I think Simon is rubbing of on me). I don’t worry about him for a second. Well, except for what the girls will be dressed in. Cause quite frankly, he sucks at that part. In fact he said to me the other day, “Please don’t die cause I don’t know how I would dress the girls if you weren’t around.” Seriously, he should just quit his job and go work for Hallmark.
So this plea for help is really from him. First childhood girl fashion advice. But more importantly, he really enjoys doing crafts and projects with the girls. Painting, cutting, pasting, paper mache, basically all the stuff I would rather gouge my eyes out than do. So he is looking for some great ideas for easy, inexpensive craft projects to do with our 4 year old girl this weekend. You get bonus points if it involves fairies, princesses or mermaids. I also have a 40% off coupon for Michael’s sitting around collecting dust so you can even suggest something that uses a Bedazzler. That just shows you how crafty I am that the only thing I could think of for crafting tools is a Bedazzler. Martha watch your back.
