But they looked sad and desperate for lil' something-something. As I was cruising through the dollar bins at Target I found the adorable spring ribbon.
I felt the inner wanna be Martha emerging.
My initial plan was to just wrap the pot with ribbon. Just put a dot when you start, wrap around, and add another dot.
But when I realized that I had quite a bit of ribbon left over, my wanna be Martha said, "You must not let this cute ribbon go to waste." So like the good girl that I am, I listened to my inner, wanna be Martha. You don't mess with Martha.
I measured, cut, glued and hung.
I kinda freaked when the boys were hanging them on branches without any care to spreading out the colors and separating the eggs with ribbon from the ones without ribbon in order to keep the trees looking balanced. But I let it go because they were enjoying the moment. If there is one lesson of motherhood that I've learned...Happy kids=Happy mama!
When they lost interest and moved on to bigger and better things such a Legos, I quickly rearranged the eggs to my liking. Is that crazy or are there other mamas who get doing that??? I hope I'm not alone. I did it with our Christmas tree too. Awful, I know.
Happy Spring, Friends.
