I was so proud of myself – I finished all the costumes one whole day before leaving for trick-or-treating, instead of the usual one whole minute.
But then I got it in my head this morning that Lucy, the Sugar Plum Fairy (Cat), needed a big plum to cover over the flower on her purple top. And then we found a bigger, better, purplier shirt that did not have a flower in need of covering… but still seemed to want a plum. Or at least I did. So now I’m no longer all finished with costumes.
I was looking up plum images (my sketches were looking too much like a certain body part) while Lucy drew pictures in her little spiral notebook. Suddenly, she handed the notebook over. “Here’s a plum, Mom.”
Clearly, she got her Daddy’s GSD genes. (Get Stuff Done.)
Which reminds me of what Sophie said yesterday. Clearly, she also sees I’m lacking certain GSD genes.
I was working on the mask for her Kaylee The Neighbor’s Golden Lab costume and kept asking her if she wanted it this way or that way, etc.
She finally put her hand on my shoulder, said “No more ideas and no more switching stuff, OK?” and walked out of the room. : )
She does like the finished mask.
