What I Learned

I learned a few things over this Christmas break and thought I would share my little list of epiphanies.
  • Enjoy the kids - even when they drive you nuts - because one day, they won't be around to drive you nuts anymore.
  • Always read the yarn label before investing a few hours creating the perfect feltable purse only to realize after the entire process is done that the yarn isn't feltable.
  • Sometimes their 'rules' are way more fun.
  • Messes happen - clean it up and move on.
  • A hug truly does fix everything.
  • The million questions, even the annoying ones, are just their way of showing they are interested.  Answer them with as little sarcasm as possible.
  • Any day is a good day to claim "PJ Day".
  • When they ask you for a homemade knitted project, no matter how silly you think it is, make it.  They simply want to carry a piece of you with them when you can't be there. 
  • As much as you look forward to school starting tomorrow and the house staying picked up for more than five minutes, don't forget to get down on the floor and get dirty for a bit too.
