I can’t wait to introduce you to my latest partnership with Total Class Creative!
As soon as Isaac saw the wood spaceship in the box there was no talking him into waiting to “get his craft on.” I had plans to decoupage this instead and then use my fancy schmancy Silhouette cutter to cut out vinyl letters that said “Blast Off!” But then I was smacked in the head by these thoughts:
Good Mom Angel: “Helllllloooooo, isn’t this a kid’s craft?”
Devilish Selfish “Over-the-Top-Need-for-Perfect-Decor” Mom: “Well yes it is, but how much cuter would it be decoupaged and vinyl lettered out?”
Good Mom Angel: “Isn’t the point of a kid’s craft to let your child enjoy the process no matter what the end product looks like? Don’t you encourage others to create?
Devilish Selfish “Over-the-Top-Need-for-Perfect-Decor” Mom: I don’t want some crooked, stickered spaceship in his room!
Good Mom Angel: Why?
Devilish Selfish “Over-the-Top-Need-for-Perfect-Decor” Mom: Because it won’t look as cute!
Good Mom Angel: So. Do you know how much joy it will give your son to do this with you?
Devilish Selfish “Over-the-Top-Need-for-Perfect-Decor” Mom: (Silence)
So guess what we did tonight? We put stickers totally crooked onto the spaceship (stickers provided in package). With the look of sheer joy on his face we spent about 20 minutes decorating his spaceship. He loved spending that time with me and was so proud of his creation. He said he wanted another one to decorate just for Kayla. Awwwww, be still my heart! Here it is in blast-off mode!
I ended up adding a piece of cardboard and a mason jar to raise up his art supplies. This will go on his desk in his bedroom. It will be perfect during his naptime quiet time. (Let’s have a moment of silence for the dying of his need for sleep during the day time).
