Downey made it Wednesday night in her Missions Friends class at church.
When we first left the class, it had two plastic bottle tops glued to either side of the cup. This made it look like a wheelbarrow. Of course by the time we got home, all ten minutes later, the wheels were gone. Its still cute, though.
What’s funny? Well, when I picked Downey up from her class, she showed me what she made and I oohhed and ahhhed over it, because it was cute! I wasn’t being fake.
But Downey informed me, her little flower in the wheelbarrow was for her Daddy.
So when Daddy came home that evening, I told her to show him what she made HIM for Mother’s Day. And she did. “Look what I made you, Daddy!”
By Mother’s Day, I was helping Miss Ruby with our Sunday School class. The kids were making cards for their mom. Of course Downey was in one of her ill-red-headed moods(These are moods brought on for no apparent reason, but my deep rooted belief is there is something about our red hair that makes our tempers volatile from time to time).
Downey didn’t want to participate in the class, and sat on the floor a couple of times, crying and being fussy. Even the other kids weren’t sure what was up with her. Finally, when she did come to the table, she chose a pink piece of construction paper and started to color on it. She announced that her card was intended for her Daddy. Fooey on Mommy.
Ruby chuckled and said, “Well, maybe she’ll make you something on Father’s Day.”
I guess I’ll just have to wait and see.
