Maddox is obsessed with craft projects. Every day he wakes up with a new "crap project" in mind. And they're sometimes pretty elaborate...bow and arrows, tinker toy Christmas trees, tinker toy electric scooters, fishing poles, numchucks, a family portrait of turtles, a campsite made out of legos, a paper rocket, a horse and carriage for his pillow pets, and that crown was loads of fun to make at 6:45 am on a summer morning when I had to color the entire thing with yellow crayon since crowns have to be made of gold (Kylie, bless her heart, glued on all the jewels). I wonder if he dreams them up at night or where he gets his ideas (and if he can't think of any ideas he breathes down my neck while we scour pinterest), but today's agenda consisted of "painting the whole earf with a rainbow on it". So we did just that.
and then after I painted the entire earth and half the rainbow he paints two strips and collapses in a heap, "this crap project is taking all my breaf away". Which is usually how all crap projects go down.
Afterwards we had to refuel our energy with homemade bread and honey butter, which the mere thought makes my eyes roll to the back of my head. I told him it was heaven and after a minute he said, "I'm eating heaven. I guess Jesus lives in the oven." He's quite an entertaining little pal to have around these days.
