In case there’s any doubt she’s mine

At least once a week emma comes home from preschool with a new craft project she’s worked on in class. I’ll admit, as much as I love seeing what she’s been up to all day, we are becoming a bit overrun with these projects. Because quite simply, I Must. Keep. Them. ALL. From the hand print snowflakes to the wind catchers, you name it we’ve probably got one or three. I realize by the time she actually makes it to grade school I’ll need a storage unit to house these crayon creations if I keep this up, but for now the archival of preschool art is alive and well in the Richmond household.

So Last week emma came home with her latest and greatest project – a poster of her name with lots of glitter and shiny-happiness glued all over it. It is quite possibly my favorite piece she has done in her three years on this earth, and so i felt the need to share.


Now you’re probably looking at this thinking, ‘that’s her kid’s best piece of art, I guess they can rule out design school.’ But if you are like me, the true genius of the piece emerges upon closer inspection of some of those flashy objects of flair adorning the page:


During these preschool years that often resemble the film Groundhog Day, we’ve gotta get our laughs where we can, especially when it comes in the form of a pink cocktail!
