this and that, an update and a favor
this: this is the advent calendar that I made for Andrew this year. My plan is to punch holes in these cuties and strong them up around the house. Andrew is really drawn to numbers lately and I see him really getting into this. He had a peek at it on the table a few minutes ago and I had to peel him away because everything wasn't glued down yet.
that: Funny Story Time! My brother is a comic book collector. He has been since he was born, I think. He has given Andrew several gifts that are Super Friends themed, including a DVD and a coloring book. Andrew still has some work to do with pronunciation, which, I totally love. He talks about "Supid Fends" all day. yup. Supid Fends. He was talking about Supid Fends at dinner last night and Dave says, "actually, Andrew, all my friends are really smart."
an Update: the store downstairs is up and running. It is beautiful and I highly recommend a trip to Brooklyn to scope the place out. When it opened it was mostly nice toys and gifts. More and more of their stock has come in, including scrapbooking stuff and other stationary bits.
and a favor: So they have asked me to teach scrapbooking classes...to kiddos and adults and I am scared! This is where the favor comes in. I want to chicken out! I know I shouldn't...and I probably won't... This is perfect for me. It would be great to meet folks in the area that like what I like. It would be great to do creative things with other people and learn and grow and all that good stuff. But I am still scared!!! I am terrible at speaking up and saying "yeah, I have a few things to teach". I feel shy and embarrassed and need a bit of pep if you have any. But, if you don't, don't sweat it. I can always call my mom. She is extremely reliable with pep.
