Once the smallest ones are tucked into bed (although not necessarily quiet), it’s time for me and my girls to have a little time together, just the big girls. Some nights we read. (Geronimo Stilton and Thea Stilton books are huge favorites these days.) Or play games. Or do something fun.
Drawings of ladies with beautiful clothes abound here, being littered around like large snowflakes, pinned or taped onto walls, slid under doorways, stuffed into the recycling bin, carefully preserved by the mama. So last night inspiration struck and we got out three pieces of paper and each of us drew an item of clothing. Then all the papers were handed around the circle and another item (or body part) was added. Collaborative art. Behold, our creations: ActFond, Rae, and Colette. Please note the hatpins on ActFond’s page, awaiting the pinning.
We’ve decided we’re going to use three little blank books that we will save just for our nighttime drawing. We’ll put them on the shelf next to the notebook of the plays we’ve written.
