The Day I've Been Waiting For...

Today, Daphne said, "Mommy, I want to make some crafts." I've waited so long to hear that! She's been really into coloring and painting lately, and she likes to make stuff when I initiate it, but today, this was all her idea. First, she wanted to cut paper with scissors. I got out the ones Kev got her a while back, but that she had forgotten about. She was so excited. "They are just my size!" While she was cutting, I carved up a leftover potato into a couple of simple stamps. I made a heart, and then she asked for a diamond.
She is still sitting at her table, working away. She just came over and said, "Mommy, come look how my cutting is going." She is so proud. So am I.

Maybe someday, she will want to learn to knit. Sigh.
I have one more thing to show you, but it's a surprise for Kevin, so it will have to wait until he gets home. Stay tuned...
