Early this morning, Reagan followed me down to the pantry, chattering away about how it is March- (this has been a big deal to him and he likes to discuss this topic with me everyday). So we get down to the pantry, where we also happen to store all our seasonal decorations and Reagan realizes an urgent need- We need to decorate for March! Hmmmm... our family must be pretty boring in the decor department because we have nothing in the pantry that is March themed . But have you noticed 4 year olds are very resourceful thinkers? Reagan took a look at some of the pumpkins we still have stored in the pantry and came up with this:
Yes, he carved a pumpkin before breakfast. Completely on his own. Yah, with a knife but I promise it was a small one (Okay, I'll be completely honest- my kids are always carving something: sticks, chestnuts, soap, boxes.... they love it and I'd rather they do that than watch T.V. But if you're worried when your kids come over, you just tell me and I promise we'll put all the knives away!) And what has a pumpkin to do with March? Reagan informs me it is for people to march by. And the various things taped to the chair? They are for "people to make March people with and March decorations". So peoples, come on over and make your own March decorations! Who says we can't make March a bit more festive?
