After ages of leaving LO's in progress accessible to preschool hands, Colin finally decided that my LO needed "some help."
Colin: "Mommy where's the glue?"
Me: "I don't have any."
Colin: "Well what is this?" As he walks across the room and finds a tacky glue bottle.
Me: "It's glue but please don't use it, we are getting ready to leave."
We finish putting our shoes on and as we walk into the garage Colin says...
Colin: "So Mommy, what do you think of your scrapbooking? I made it special for you. I wanted to scrapbook with you so I made it special."
So I walk slowly over to my counter and see how special Colin made my almost finished LO. He glued a string of scrapper's floss to the photo with coordinating buttons.
GLUE. He used GLUE.
So I walked backed to the car and I didn't have the heart to tell him that I was tempted to ground him till college because he was so happy that he helped and that I liked it.
When I came home I removed the evidence and I may cover the spot of clear glue with an embellishment or possibly reprint the photo. Colin was upset that someone moved the buttons and I told him that the glue didn't hold it.
Colin: "Well I better get more glue."
Me: As shrieks of panic go through my body. "You know that would make a really nice necklace."
He is now happily making me a necklace that I WILL wear in exchange for him laying off of my LO's.
Who knew scrappers floss was so versatile?
Did I mention that this LO is due tomorrow morning?
