Mother Brag

'Salina is so creative - hey, she may not be the tidiest kid, have the neatest writing, be the fastest runner - but her creativity certainly has a different spectrum.


Case in point: Modelled here as a pair by V, this design was created to perpetuate a story she had regaled us with all evening of her foot injury, surgery, hospitalisation and recovery.

When V admired the padding (his line of work sees him standing on concrete most days all day "on his bare bones") she fashioned a pair for him.


Here they are again modelled by V, this time in a "Happy Feet" pose.

Tonight while singing songs, instead of the usual mother to daughter routine, she kept us in raptures with her Dylan version of "Hey Diddle Diddle"; her "Twinkle Twinkle" Iggy Pop style; and finally "Sing a Song of Sixpence" - again very Dylan-esque but unique enough for her to be able to enjoy bedtime for just that 15 minutes more...

Smart girl. A little awkward but pleasantly cushioned.

LOL. Kids are so clever.

Oh, and just wanted to let you know I'm having a blog contest.

The prize this time is a kid's prize pack including 3 computer games.

Good luck if you decide to enter!

Very clever! I just love those little stories and it's great you have them blogged for safe keeping :)

Kids are so inventive aren't they? As t above said, it is great to blog about these little snippets in time and blogged about them for safe keeping.

Nice! Maybe V and 'Salina can start patenting a cushion-sole, steel capped work boot - should be a winner.

I'm just laughing imagining "Twinkle Twinkle" Iggy Pop style!
