Lessons learned

My daughter Hannah has skills; skills that I like to encourage and support.
Like her Mommy and Daddy, she likes to make things and work on projects. She's been decorating book marks for everyone in our family. And she's great with scissors.

Maybe a little too great.

Here's a silk scarf I've been adding a picot edging to for a Christmas present.

I made the mistake of leaving my scissors and this project within her reach. We're both really lucky that she didn't get hurt. And it didn't take me too long to realize that.

Maybe I'll make it into a teeny scarf for Hannah to have when she's a little older. And when she has kids of her own, I'll tell her about the day that both mommy and baby cried when mommy learned the hard way to keep her beading projects out of the way.

Oh Don't cry Amy, don't cry Hannah! It is a beautiful scarf and would have looked wonderful without the slashes and holes!
