I couldn't agree more. I wish I could use pen and paper with the same implicit trust, ease and confidence my kids do.  Or maybe I could?

So good to be reminded. Especially now before Christmas with all this present buying madess happening around us.

Even though it can easily turn a quick 2 minute walk to the shops into an hour long expedition :)

Before going to bed my daughters dedicate a great deal of time to making sure everything they hold dearly is close-by and in its right place. It makes me smile to imagine how they would apply the same personalization to an office space :)

It seems ages ago that my kids were babies, but I still receive daily lessons on all 4.

Anna told me how she later turned one of these creatures into a human size octopus costume (of which one arm can still be found in the house today ) Kids drawings have secret powers, I think.

Almost forgot to post the next calendar image, sorry.
Such a busy time, those final weeks before Christmas. I am trying to make the majority of presents myself and progress is slow. But I can't help it, that's what I like and what I think is important. I guess I fall asleep the minute Santa Claus knocks on the door.

I know I am saying this every day, but this is so true. Mine make me braver, too.

So so true. And they don't consider the process of making to be work. It's part of the fun and play.

Hetty commented yesterday that the joy kids find in everything is contagious. So true. I think their spontaneous humor, too. 
I had a tooth extracted yesterday. Back home when they inspected the damage the little one asked, "Did you cry, did you scream?". Imagine :)
