thrifty thursday- pair of owls
i found this cute little pair for $2 a piece at the our local ARC store. i brought them home and showed them to Will (our 5yr old)
Will is generally a pretty fun-loving, rowdy, imaginative, goofy little kid but he also has this little grown-up, 1st born streak in him that comes out occasionally in statements like, "wow, mom, i really like what you did with the valentine decorations. that red heart looks really nice up there. good work." or "yikes, your room is kinda a mess." or "i like your hair. it looks really good."
So, when i showed him the owls i also told him i was thinking of painting them. to which he replied, "oh. yeah, that would look great. maybe a nice brown or gray. and leave their beaks and eyes yellow. and the trunk brown."
To which i replied, "ummmm i was actually thinking something a bit more fun. like maybe orange or turquoise."
He looked at me like i had seriously lost my mind. cocked his head a bit and after a long pause said, "uhhh.... yeah. but owls are usually brown or gray."
well, moving along. the votes still out as to what they'll be painted but either way, i think they're fun.
