I've never really been into puzzles. My dad loves them, and it seems like almost every time I went to my grandparents house there would be a puzzle on their card table...but it just never really was my thing. However- Scarlett got a 300 piece puzzle for her birthday and really wanted to put it together. As much as I like to foster self confidence and independence by having the kids do things for themselves, I was pretty sure this would have the total opposite effect. SO, I told her that I would help her and every night after Clark went to bed we worked a little bit on the puzzle. I have to say that it was so much fun! Maybe I just liked the time alone with her since she's gone all day, maybe it was because it seemed relaxing, I have no idea. But we had a great time, and after about 2 weeks we finally finished!!

I think this may become a new nightly activity. :)

Wow - I'm impressed. I don't think I could have done that. Looks complicated to me! Special memories continue as you both spend time together over puzzles!
