Right On Q.

Its the Friday before the week of Christmas and there's Christmas in the air.

I have that song in my head... It's the night before the night before Christmas, everywhere you go. I don't even have the lyrics right, but the song is a-singing in my heart.

I love this time of the season, scurrying about, quickly wrapping up last minute gifts, listening to Christmas tunes and challenging myself to squeeze it allllllllll in.

Today at Montessori, it's Q day, Q show and tell day. This morning Kenz was still trying to figure out what to bring. "Let's think about this," I told her in our 8 O'clock phone exchange. "Queen?" No, Nana. "Quick?" (I thought about this a second and dropped it. I didn't want to make her mom have to stop at the store and BUY a can of Nestle Quick.) (But it was a good idea.) Then it hit me---"Bring Q-tips." I heard her mom in the background--- "Good one Nana!" So that's settled....hurray!

Isn't this the loveliest poinsettia you ever saw? Simple construction paper and glue. Oh yes, the best things in life are ....children's art projects. I love the simplicity and creativity. They are quintessential, quiet and quite wonderful.
