little snail

On a recent visit to Barnes and Noble, Lydia bought the Angel Cat Sugar book A New Friend. In the book, Sugar rescues a snail whose home was destroyed in a thunderstorm. (Heavy stuff.) Before we even left the store, she was looking around for a snail, in order to act out the story. I could see snail making in my immediate future, so after she went to bed that night, I found a cute snail pattern.

The next day, I whipped up a little snail to match the one in the book. There's a lot going on around here, as always; even though it only took a short time, I didn't really have the time to spare. But Lydia will only be four once. And look at that face! (I may have opened a can of worms, though - in the book, Sugar also makes a house for the snail…)

Nothing you could have done would have been more important than that. You are just the BEST Mommy!

That is a totally beautiful picture of Lydia! She is blessed to have a mommy that can whip up snails.

You cannot put a price on that. The value is too high. You are very wise.
