This Just In

We interrupt today's previously scheduled eye candy post to bring you this special recipe.

Using a medium-sized dining room, combine:

One (1) deadline knitting project
One (1) pair scissors
One (1) 4 year old

Leave ingredients for 10 minutes.

View result.

Breath in.

Breath out.

Take picture of yarn scraps for blog.

oh, the horror! The horror!

It must be said that one may substitute "ornery cat" for "4 year old" and achieve similar results, lack of opposable thumbs be damned.

Oh, can I relate! Take one bathroom with still-wet fresh wallpaper job, 4-year-old "artist" with large felt-tip permanent red marker and you get the picture! Mommy needed a time out with a large bottle of wine!

Between my cat and dog, they made similar hash of some lovely unspun icelandic. No deadline involved, for me though, so it doesn't even begin to compare.

You forgot to add eerie silence to the list.

That's how Emma ended up cutting Alexander's hair when he was a baby.

Hope it all worked out.

Oh ow!! But oh my, how great a story you're going to be able to tease said four-year-old with once the teens hit. And the measure of a successful mother of a teen is being able to cheerfully and happily mortify them over things of no consequence (by then, at least) as part of their learning to get over themselves. A way of teaching them to laugh at themselves.

Which is always very useful when they've just done such a thing.

My then-four-year-old allowed near his sister's scissors in the back seat gave himself a masterful hair cut. In the car on the way to my brother's wedding. The photographs were permanent.
