The finished product. We finished last night at 10:30. Whew... And Calvin was invited back into the puzzle room. He played with his trucks and worked on his own puzzle. I did laugh when I was helping him with his puzzle and he said "Mom, you are doing a great job on this puzzle but not very good at your puzzle." :)
|This is his "cheese" smile face. Why do kids do that? :)|
He is working on his 63 piece I SPY puzzle.
|The Finished Product!|
The other great thing I remembered about Puzzle Day is how therapeutic puzzles can be. Charlie and I were goofy, sang songs and talked. We talked about lots of things... everything and anything. Important things. Not important things. Last year a good friend of mine lost her daughter. She said that for a few weeks, she just sat at the dinning room table and did 1000 piece puzzles. I understand why. It would be therapeutic to be distracted and calm to get through that.
Our kids can be given our attention again... until 2015 Puzzle Day.
