Sometimes I’ll admit, I’m a bit more crafty disaster than crafty connoisseur. But these wooden peg dolls that I made three years ago are still holding up and are still a family favorite! For a baby girl whose new favorite pastime is sorting, colorful people (even colorful people who have lost half of their hair due to baby slobber) with colorful cups for homes are fantastic friends to have when waiting for dinner.
She’s getting so big and communicating so well; I can ask Little H a question and she will (usually) shake her head “no” vigorously, because of course she knows what she wants. Most of the time it’s food, but a lot of the time it’s these guys.
I’m proud of the effort it took to make them, proud of the fact that all three of my kids have had a great time playing with these wooden peg dolls, proud of the fact I created something she loves and will keep her quiet for the three and a half minutes it takes to microwave Easy-Mac.
With vegetables! I swear! Okay, I microwave the frozen vegetables, but it still counts.
Thank goodness we have friends in colorful places.
