Showing our children what we do at our jobs helps them understand what it means when parents say, "I have to go to work." It sets them up to understand that someday they will have a career of their own and gives them a clear picture of what mom or dad does all day at work. I decided today was the day to show Eve a little of how I do what I do. She decided she wanted to write a blog post. I told her I try to think of a thing to which parents relate and try to have a clear beginning, middle, and end part. I told her details are important because they make your story more memorable and colorful. This is what she came up with. I admit I added punctuation but the rest is hers.
I strongly advise you to find a way to give your kids a chance to do what you do. I bet you'll be surprised. Just wait. You'll see.
Crafts are great. They are also a good thing to have. You can make them in lots of different ways. Some supplies you can use are flowers, buttons or jewels. You can also use bows, glitter, beads, or sequins. You can even use bigger glitter or pompoms, stars, or stickers.
You put the little things on a piece of paper made white, blue, brown, yellow, orange, maybe green too. We need red too and pink or purple also. Dark blue or magenta are good colors too. You will need scissors to cut the paper. You can cut it into squares, triangles, or maybe a heart. Flower shapes are also fun. You could cut snowflakes or circles. You could cut a leaf shape or an oval. You could glue several shapes together to make a figure such as a tree, snowman, flower, or animal.
You glue on your supplies.
Once it's done you have to give it to your Mama or whoever you want it to be for.
It means you love them.
It's one of the best ways to show them you love them. It's your own creation.
I couldn't agree with her more.
