Wisdom Comes Suddenly

Viva La Angelfish Baby!

October 8th, 2012 · 2 Comments

I would LOVE to take credit for this awesome mask, but I can’t.  Kelly did it.  And by “did it”, I mean she sat millimeters from my legs, handing me each and every one of these sequins and jewels, instructing me where to glue them.  I would have screwed this thing up had it not been for Kelly’s careful explanation that the nose needed continuity, and jewels would be obligatory.  I will take credit for talking her out of a “ribbons only” approach (and by “talk out of of”, I mean I put my foot down and said no way was I using ribbons and hot glue to create an Angelfish…good Lord, my skills have limits people).

I did one thing: I created the wicked cool dorsal fin. 1 shiny stick…TA-DA! Man, was she ever relieved.  I don’t know if her worries about a realistic dorsal fin were keeping her up at night, but you should have seen the look on her face when my vision came to fruition.  2 seconds and some glue…I’m on some kind of a crafting roll.

This is the most Las Vegas-y Kindergarten project I have ever seen.  I haven’t loved a mask this much since I turned Sara into a Rainbow Lorikeet.  I swear, if Kelly pulls a Sara on Virtual Zoo day, I will cry.  I’ve lost fingers for the Closing Games of Kindergarten’s Vertebrate Unit in 2 different years, and I’m just going to say it…there should be a badge. SOMEBODY is wearing this thing, and if I have to do it, I will do what I have to do.  It’s not nerdy if you’re doing it for SCIENCE. Wait no, strike that.  Reverse it.

Now if you’ll excuse me, Sara is supposed to be a Zebra with STRIPES, while Kelly has been assigned the role of the Zebra with SPOTS.  Really guys, when is the badge ceremony?  Maybe a trophy with a hot glue gun on top?  Being held by burned fingers covered in sequins?  I’m going to start a committee…

    Thank you! I’ll be the Mom running between the Virtual Zoo and the Insect-A-Palooza, and potentially wearing one of two masks. Of course, you always know it’s me by my camera bouncing off my hip! Taking a Zoo trip tomorrow with Kelly’s class, still waiting on my badge from the 2 I took with you in the SNOW!!! HA!
