we'll just follow the instructions

The other day Olea and I read ZuZu's Wishing Cake. She was excited with the creativity of the little girl in the book and the "instructions" and wanted to make some of the things in the book that Zuzu did. She ran around to all the bathrooms looking for almost out toilet paper rolls... no luck, paper towels... no luck. So I suggested a few of the other things Zuzu made... Sunglasses and a purse. Olea was stoked. Zurich was down for a nap so we headed down to the studio. I dug up some old blank negatives and brought some yarn and found a paper bag. And Olea set to work with the book there as her instructions. Super fun.


  1. Wow, you are so creative! You've got the luckiest kids to have a mom like you.

  2. Hmm...as much as I love Monday's poem, it seems to me that you know EXACTLY what you are doing. So, even if you don't feel like it, you're very good at tricking the world. :)

    Olea is so cute I could just pass out. :)
