Caleb came down with another UTI on Sunday (his second one in 2 months). Not sure what is going on but I don't like it. He was UTI free for 3 1/2 years and all of a sudden we are having issues. Grrr....Anyway, he runs a fever when he has a UTI so he has missed 3 days of school this week. This week was also "Dr. Seuss Week" in celebration of Dr. Seuss' birthday in March. Caleb has been been less than thrilled with missing school. He is convinced that all of his friends are making all of these amazing Dr. Seuss crafts without him. So, today I helped him make a hat to wear for "Crazy Hat Day" on Friday.
(Cutting out the template)
I love the look on his face. He is wondering why his momma is always taking his picture and why his momma feels the need to take a picture of him cutting paper. I am a chronic picture-taker, there I said it.
To decorate his hat I showed him how to take small pieces of tissue paper, twist them around a pencil, and then glue the tissue paper down. He thought that was pretty cool...but after twisting about 5 pieces of tissue paper he was done. He decided I would twist and he would glue.
Meticulously placing dots of glue.
And...drum roll please...
Notice the "accessory" we added to the side of the hat. That is the pink clover with the speck from "Horton Hears a Who" (I made it with pipe cleaner and pom poms). That was all Caleb's idea! Too cute. His face says it all. I think he will be very proud to wear his hat to school on Friday for "Crazy Hat Day".
Oh and that top front tooth is very loose and will be the next one to fall out. I imagine it will be out by the weekend :) I'll take some extraction photos because I am a chronic picture-taker.
