It’s been a week of crafty firsts for our family. File this under “Stuff that makes me giddy”. It absolutely tickled me when Paolo showed interest in learning how to make lanyards on Monday. I adored making them at summer camp as a kid. The camp director, had I been caught out, could have been charged with exploiting me for child labor. I churned those suckers out. Paolo’s been making them with my help all week, even bringing them to his summer program and getting the older kids to help him.
Last night Paolo crawled onto my lap while I was scrolling through Pinterest. As a result, today I will start a board of his own so he can pin things to his heart’s delight. He was mesmerized, “Can we do that? How about that? Click on that!”
