My Baby thinks in Colors

Recently, Josh was asked to be interviewed for a Local Film Showcase that's held on the third Wednesday of every month called The Cinema Lounge. It's super intimate and interesting because you get to hear all about the behind the scenes of how they made it happen. There was once a time in my life where I was insanely devoted to the local film community here, running a film guild with over 100 members... That was of course another lifetime ago it seems, but it was really nice to be a part of it - even if only for 1 night...

While we were out galavanting with the Locals, Elliette got to spend some much needed time with her Wawa - which is what we call Josh's Mom (well not US -- he actually calls her Mom and I tend to use Susie - but the Grandkids have unanimously voted to call her Wawa) Anyway, we got back past everyone's bedtime so we tiptoed around gathering all of Elliette's stuff and we came across this note from Wawa --




And then we made our way to the fireplace to see what she was talking about and we found this --




Turns out -- my kid has some serious skills! She did that all by herself - which I am STILL in amazement of! And can I just say - the part of her that organized those balls in the most amazing little rows makes me more proud than if she had solved a quadratic equation and gave me the value of x...

If there is a question at all to where she got this skill -- ahem.... Here is some of my sewing/craft stuff:








And yes - that would be a photo of an obscene amount of craft pom poms, tiny crystals, and other misc. items organized by color and size each placed in a tiny ziplock to keep them from touching - BECAUSE THAT WOULD CAUSE MY HEAD TO EXPLODE...


Obviously, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree - and honestly, she's in for it. The world is not nice to people like us!
