123/366 tissue paper flora

Sweetpea chose a Rio theme for her birthday party this year. We spent today making a table full of tissue paper flowers and leaves in bright, saturated colors. I use the word “we” loosely—she helped for approximately four flowers before leaving to play cars with the little guy. We were working on these stacked tissue hibiscus-type flowers, and I showed her how to separate the layers to make them fluffy.

“You're hired!” she said.

Seriously? Where does an almost 8 year old get a line like that?

Cute! You're such a good mommy to do all that work. I love some of the stuff my kids say. They can be quite funny.

Umm...she gets it from her Mom? She really does have an unusually sharp sense of humor, but both kidlets are unusually sharp about everything. I suppose you could blame The Dad for half of it. Love them to bits!!
