When I am reading blogs, there are so many times that I think to myself "I wish she lived closer." I have found so many amazing connections through blogging. And this weekend, I finally met up with another blogger!
The girls and I headed over to Nissa's house on Saturday. Nissa was hosting a house party for Fisher Price. And even though my girls are long past the Fisher Price stage...Nissa said there would be cupcakes. So, we drove across the
universe county for friendship. Connections. And cupcakes.
Those cupcakes were yummy. Shhhh. I had two. Nissa's daughter Melodie thought they were divine. Or great face cream. Or something.
Nissa and I have a lot of things in common. But one place we diverge is in the crafts department. She is a crafty soul. I don't like the mess. She has an etsy store. I just shop. So, when she asked the girls if they would like to make a craft - they eagerly followed her. All the while discussing the absence of this greatest glory from their lives.
Nissa had set up a spot in her dining room for the girls to make friendship bracelets. They picked out 6 pieces of yarn. Got a circle to help with the braid. And made a knot in the yarn.Katie took a couple of tries to get the hang of it. Madalyn decided that it was waayy too much work. So, guess who completed her craft? Katie had so much fun making these bracelets that she made three. And told me that we needed to buy yarn so that she could make more. Uh-huh. Sure. No problemo.
Before we left, Katie agreed to take our picture. With a lot of caveats. Just faces. No hips. She did great! (I won't share the other photo she took. Of just hips!)
And then Madalyn informed me today that she wished Nissa was her mom. Cause she is sooo cool. After I suggested that if she would jump in the van, I would make her dreams come true. She slightly adjusted her proclamation. And now, Nissa is just the coolest craft mom.
So, what about you? Are you the cool mom? Or do you thank your lucky stars that your kids have a cool mom to hang out with? Have you met any of the friends that live inside your computer?
