Every Tuesday morning for the past month I've had a babysitter watch the girls. I head to a local bookstore and write for three blessedly uninterrupted hours. (My book deadline is approaching. Cue various visceral responses, among them a happy squeal, nervous laughter, and lightheadedness.)
Last week when I returned home I saw this impressive paper firework dangling from our kitchen light fixture:
As I approached it and marveled at the intracacy, I had several thoughts:
- What IS that?
- How did she do that?
- Our babysitter is amazing.
- Clearly, people like her are why Pinterest exists.
And finally, This is going to be hanging above our kitchen table so I bump my head on it each time I stand up from my chair for the next several months, isn't it?
(Yes, it is.)
I wish I could tell you how she did it. She briefly explained the procedure. (It has to do with paper and folding and cutting, but after that, I got lost.)
All I can tell you is that you've got to get yourself a babysitter like her.
