When my four year old gets home from preschool and the baby takes a nap, we have "Mommy and Judah Time". Usually we color, read, build Lego boats, etc. But lately we've been working on this little project.
It's nothing but a big sheet of card stock (snagged from in between stacks of toilet paper at Costco - haha!) - a super easy project that needs no instructions. The best part though, is that every time we lay in the floor to color, he starts chatting.... he tells me about his day, his favorite thing to do on the playground, his best friends at school, what the girls at school say (one told him he was cute during nap time!!), which letters are hard to write, and which are easy, what he wants to be when he grows up. It all comes spilling out as fast as the colors on the page.
I know this will be hard to fit in the keepsake box, but I don't think I'll be able to part with Our Town any time soon!
The dog watches while the local church gets an orange window...Making a traffic jam...Toy Store and Pet Shop (he made it rain on them one day)...His tree house...New additions will include a train track and station, and a bakery. :)
