For some reason today I decided I need to start a Christmas tradition and make homemade advent calendars for my sons.
I’m not talking about some sort of hand-stitched tomfoolery. I’m not that cray-cray.
Still, there’s something inside of me that wants to create. This frightens me, as I’m not a particularly creative person. I’m going to chalk it up to motherhood, that bizarre creature that whispers, “Look at these beings you created! Now don’t you want to make something for them?”
Dear voice inside of my head: I brought them into this world. How is that not enough?
So this week I embark upon a grand experiment: make an advent calendar. I have a plan in my head, but I think you’ve all seen how well my plans tend to turn out. Should be good times! Overall goal: Complete advent calendar by December 1.
*Yes, I know I can buy an advent calendar. THAT’S NOT THE POINT.
**Seriously, if you tell me to buy one, I’ll know you completely missed the whole point of this post.
