So the big day arrived and the boys and I piled into the minivan with visions of wood, hammers, and valentine mailboxes.
We find our way to the end of aisle 9 and the boys were given a very cool Lowe's apron, a project kit and a darling little hammer.
And then I felt a bit overwhelmed. Hammering in nails is somewhat intimidating for me. Putting in nails feels so permanent. What if they aren't straight? What if they are the wrong size? And, remember there are three of THEM and one of me. Let's also mention that I really hate small repetitive noises. I don't appreciate humming, whistling, tapping or small children hammering!
I tried to look brave and somewhat capable. I tried to tune out the tap, tap, tapping with amusing comments about Excedirin. Obviously, though, everyone could tell I'm better at purse shopping and the salesladies helped A and D while S and I did our best.
In the end we were all victorious and left Lowe's with our handsome aprons, three project iron-on patches (for the apron) and three cute valentine mailboxes.
At home I piled up the mailboxes to show you, only to notice that it is very obvious which one S and I made.
Next weekend the project is a bird feeder. We'll see if I'm any better.
