The Crafty Doesn't Fall Far From the Tree

I forgot to mention, as I was skittering around tying baby toys and bows to a cake made of diapers, my oldest was fluttering nearby asking perpetual questions.

"What are you doing, Mommy?  What is that?  Why are you tying that?  Can I have that cup?  How many diapers are on there?  Why is it called a cake?  You can't eat it!  Why are you putting bows on there?  Can I wear the bows?  Is this for Aunt Shell's baby?  Where is she?  Can I help?  Can I help? Mommy, can I help now?  Can I make one?"

I would have let her help, I truly would have.  But I had 15 minutes to get things together and get out the door.  So instead, I handed her a pile of diapers, some ribbon, and some various extra items and let her have a go at making her own.

With a minimal amount of help, she assembled this,

This Mama is totally proud. 


  1. That's so awesome! I hope you took it as a "grooms cake" type of deal! :o)

  2. Aunt Shell loved it!!! She is so sweet and excited to have another little girl around!
