Rocking The Mothership!
Whoa! Today was one of those days where everyone in the house was in a different orbit! Call it cabin fever, stress, boredom, whatever, but the Mothership was rockin’!! So it’s February 16 th and Spring is just a little over a month away, close enough to imagine what it feels like, but too far away to break out the patio furniture.
So what’s the cure? We decided to unearth the arts and crafts stuff and create something awesome. Give a kid some clay and paints and they can come up with all kinds of crazy stuff! What was once the kitchen table, suddenly became an art studio! We molded, we crafted and we painted, it was just like the old days when the kids were still in the single digits; and they still liked their parents.
Entertainment for preteens is hard to come by, especially in the Winter. Kids can get stuck in a rut just like adults, but they don’t know how to get out of it. Mom has to think creative!
What started off to be a tense afternoon turned into quite a nice day!
