Sweet Innocence

Adorable, four years old, bursting with pride. She'd spent the entire week attending a Day Children's Craft Camp, bringing home a different sort of paper craft every day. Her mom, also bursting with pride, had covered one wall of her little daughter's pink bedroom with cork board, for displaying such treasures.

Little four-year old's tiny, chubby hand slipped into my larger, chubby hand, gently tugging, urging me to follow along to her domain.

I did. Right into her pretty pink, toy-strewn room.

Pointing to all of her lovely creations neatly affixed to her Craft Wall she stated, beaming face uplifted, "My mommy hanged all my craps on the wall!"

A classic.

Good for Mommy (hanging craps on the wall) & good for the 4 year old! Creativity & the nurturing of creativity make my heart sing.

WC, Deanna, and Ann, the hard part was to not crack up when she said it to me, this little daughter of a friend. You'll be proud of me that I took the time to inspect each 'crap', letting her tell me all about it, and I didn't laugh...not once...until I told her mom.

Thanks for the comments, you fine women!

Hi Cherie, I got into reading your blog through Iain's Reflections and have enjoyed reading your posts. Your latest one made me smile and then actually kaugh out loud - even although I was on my own at the time. It's a great gift to make people smile never mind to laugh, so keep up the good work

Not surprising that you found this post hysterical, Leisel - you have funny little kids in your life, too! Thanks for letting me know you found some pleasure here. :-D

Alex, can't thank you enough for introducing yourself to me in the form of encouragement such as this! It makes me truly happy to know that I made you laugh - well, that little Kristin made you laugh. Thanks for entering into the conversation - I'm grateful.

(And thank you, Iain, for providing the link. :-)

Can't help but smile at this one! It's not often one encounters a wall full of pretty craps.

That's priceless!!
I was going to ask you if you managed to keep a straight face, but you already answered that. Tough wasn't it? ;)
I have just given myself a new title: Chief "Crapter" of the Household. The way some of my experiments turn out, this isn't far from the truth.

Cherie said...

Pam, how right you are!!! Glad it brought a smile.

tish: Chief Crapter, huh....keep experimenting and one day you will have a Wall of Craps to brag about, too!

Annie said...
