...is what Mia said her flower ponytail band smelled like....just out of the blue while riding in her car seat. While we're on the way to something, she likes to wreck the ponytail thang. Today, it apparently smelled like a bumblebee.
On to hobbies. Monday evening, Daryl came home in a bad mood. So, Mia and I ordered him to lay on the floor while we showered him with kisses, tickles and zerberts. All that attention improved his mood a little. Mandalas! Ah ha! I pulled out all the mandalas I'd copied for the MNI night I hosted a while ago, colored pencils and markers. We all picked a mandala, our medium of choice and started coloring.
I hoped it would rest his mind a little and help him relax. It did. We started talking about this and that, and then I realized that besides playing pool, he doesn't really have a hobby. I drum and take pictures. Two hobbies. I have two. I asked Daryl what kind of stuff he wanted to do when he was younger, and after a little digging, he thought of building RC airplanes...building the engine, too. How cool is that?!?! I of course asked if he'd name his plane after me, and he said one for me and one for Mia. awwwww
We chatted more and decided to rearrange the play area/office upstairs to accommodate a work table. Mia can play, Daryl builds airplanes and I can be on the 'puter messing with shots....all in the same room! Daryl is excited about picking a plane and working on it, showing Mia what he's doing and taking us all out to fly it! Hobby! Yay!
