I have learned something valuable now that I am a mom: if I have the time and desire to do something creative, I need to do it THEN and not procrastinate. That is why Ruby's Wilma costume was done the night I bought the fabric (3 weeks before Halloween). If I don't do it the minute I have the motivation spurred by the inspiration, it probably won't get done. And then I will be sad. That is why I have already created and ordered our Christmas cards. It all started with a photo shoot with the star of our family...
"These look like wires. I don't ever get to play with wires."
"No, seriously. I get to play with these?"
"Mom has no clue what these are does she?"
"Let's not tell her."
"Too much excitement. I need to rest."
