While we were visiting grandparents in Georgia at Christmas, we took Yaya to the History Museum. She had a few dollars that she was dying to spend on a souvenir, but there wasn't much in her price range for kids. After refusing to let her buy a few items, she found a package of Spool Doodles hidden on the bottom shelf covered with dust. It had no price on it, but she was begging me to let her buy it anyway. I told her she would have to ask the docent what the price was before I would agree. When he came back into the room, she pounced with her question. He thought a second before saying, "Well, that's been there for years now. How about $2?" She eagerly handed over her money.
I thought she might be able to keep busy with this on our long drive home. However, when we started out days later, she had already lost the main instructions, and I couldn't figure it out from the particular project instructions. I found the instructions about a week after we got home, but we had other things to do and the Spool Doodles were momentarily forgotten. I found them again earlier this week and decided to use some of my yarn to figure it out, so I could show Yaya how to do it later. I started working last night while guarding the bedroom door to keep the girls from getting up at bedtime (we've been having a great struggle with this lately when Bumble discovered how to climb out of the crib).
