One of the requirements for being a mom is an ability to be creative. My creative abilities were put to the test today.
My son was playing with his wrestling action figures. "Mom, we need to go to the store!"
"I need a wrestling ring."
"No you don't."
"Yes I do!"
"Then go find four sticks," was my reply.
He looked at me like I had rocks in my head, but he went and fetched the sticks.
"Now go find some yarn," I instructed.
He came back with some lovely pink yarn.
"Now find some playdo."
When he had completed his mission, I tied the pink yarn to the sticks, and put the sticks in the playdo.
"Viola!" I said, looking at my masterpiece. " A new wresting ring!"
My little guy was amazed.
