I believe I remember my mama insisting on thank you notes hand written as a child. Snail mail is just all too rare dont you think? At least the good kind. Miles and I spent our morning making stuff. I sincerely let him help with everything today. Not just pretend either. I had the patience and the time to let him pour and mix ingredients, measure and make a mess, and then sweep and sponge it off. Not a bad little baker either…cocoa banana muffins (and coffee). Perfect way to start a surprisingly brisk morning. Holding on to hope for a few more summer weeks though.
You know, I think he behaved quite a bit better too. Letting him make a nice old mess is quite enjoyable and its really never as hard to clean up as you expect. Although, I have been known to have a high tolerance for a mess…
This lovely artwork was the aftermath from next little activity of the morning; the thank you cards. I saw this
great way of creating art with elastic bands and paint on a blog called play at home mama. Awesome ideas if you get a chance to browse. I believe Miles loved it. Snapping elastics, making a mess, playing with mama, and eating muffins. Not bad. Plus his art was so inspirational I want to make some of my own!
