Miss M decided to tell me at 4.30pm she wanted to be an angel for the school Christmas concert which I only found out both kids were apart of at 9.00am earlier that day. The concert started at 6.15pm. I had my sister here in the afternoon hanging out with us before leaving for Thailand tomorrow and then to Ecuador so time was its usual manic mess. But I often amaze myself how I can find the most basic of materials in the house and produce a costume within a flash. White card, two straws, and some cotton wool balls.
Is that something that mothers get given when they become mothers? The ability to whip up something in order for little faces to be happy? What have you made for your little one in under an hour before rushing out the door?
This week I am giving away some greeting cards and an original collage of Schmookins over at bloesem kids for their Win on Wednesday section.
