While having a serious discussion with a favorite three-year-old about birthdays, I mentioned that her sitter had a birthday coming up soon.
I asked her, "What do you think we should make to give her on her birthday?"
Without hesitation, she exclaimed, "Oh! I know! How about a party hat?!"
"That's a great idea!" I told her. "Let's go home and make one for her."
"Sounds great!" She said, "A nice, pink party hat. That's a great idea!"
So, go home we did, and a nice, pink party hat we made:
It was a pretty decent collaboration, and the pink turned out very nice indeed. It was well-received by our sitter with a heart of gold, and is proudly displayed on her mantel still. (Too sweet!) I love that the simplest things are often the most exciting and special to our daughter. It's charming and refreshing to have access to that perspective.
