Andrew liked peeling the paper off the crayons and Luke like breaking them. Go figure. I couldn’t illustrate their personalities any better. Andrew is systematic and “by the book” while Luke is a free spirit, roaming where the wind blows. Andrew likes peace, order, and practicality. Luke likes to bite, hit, scream, dance, and jump. So, my two sons butted heads quite a bit during this craft activity but we managed to get it done. Notice that I’m sitting in the middle – lately it seems that all I’ve been saying is, “Are you choosing to obey or disobey? When you obey Mama then God is glorified”. What I
DO really want to scream is, “Stop whining! Don’t slap your brother! Get your hand off of your baby sister’s head! HUSH! No, you can’t have any more juice! Yes, I did dilute it with water because we’re trying to save money by not buying juice ALL THE TIME! Why are you asking me that for the 121st time? NO, gum is not considered a snack. You don’t need help going to the potty. Get off the counter top. If you eat any more cheese sticks then you won’t be able to poop! It costs money to take more than the needed one bath every once in a while per day.”, and so on…..
Andrew and Luke are going to give these crayon hearts to their class for Valentines Day along with candy & their Harley Davidson cards (I knew you would like that touch, BB and Heidi). We really did have fun making these but I only let them make one tray of them. After that, I put them down for a nap and finished the next two batches by myself!
