Pirate Party Invitations
(Goblin is 34 months)
Its Goblin's birthday in October and I decided to be very organised and send out invitations nice and early. He is having a pirate themed birthday - and it would appear so is every other 3 year old in the northern hemisphere but who said I had to be original. I wanted to do hand made invites with the details of the party printed out and stuck inside. And fortunately I had a bunch of black ready folded card left over from when we made our own wedding invitations over 7 years ago - Yes that is how much of a craft horder I am *hangs head in shame*.
While they dried, at Goblin's request I painted him. It was during this episode that I realised that Goblin sees painting as a sensory exercise rather than a creative one. Once I'd come to terms with this I was a lot less annoyed that he'd used up all the blue sparkly paint by mixing it with BLACK! (OK when I say a lot less annoyed that does not directly equate to not annoyed at all).
I'm sharing this with
