A Mother's Work

Tonight my 17 year old son came in from working on his Senior Class Homecoming Float.  And along with him was a package of a million sheets of green paper and a request for 7 bow ties.  Now, it's Sunday evening at 8:00 pm and the Worleybird Studio has been put to rest for the night or so I thought!.  I have spent the last hour turning those million sheets of green paper (okay, it was really only 500 but it looked like a million!) into Monopoly money and fashioning 7 bow ties out of wide twill tape, hair ties, buttons and thread.  It's all I had to work with on short notice.  I think the money will look okay from a distance.  Let's hope that the 7 bow ties hold up to 7 teenage boys and their dancing and other shenanigans - they have to make it through the week and all the Homecoming activities and to the parade on Friday afternoon.  I'll share some photos next week and let you know how it goes!  Keep your fingers crossed. 

A mother's work is never done - right?
