Remember how back in Craft Week Mama was hopeful that she would be inspired to make Fiona something for her first birthday? Well, inspired she was – three times over in fact.
Mama decided that she would knit Fiona not one, not two, but three birthday mice! And so knit she did.
But in typical Mama fashion, right before the big birthday extravaganza Mama decided that she did not like Pink Mouse #3. She wanted Purple Mouse instead. So she had to go to Micheal’s and buy purple yarn.
And then she was almost finished but she had a tad too much to drink at a bachelorette party (or two – shhh don’t tell the kid) and so the mouses did not get finished in time for the big day.
And then there was an even bigger day to get ready for with the big wedding.
And then it was mid-July – oh my!
But you know what – birthday presents a few weeks late are a whole lot better and more unexpected than birthday presents that are on time.
Or at least that’s what Mama told herself when she finally finished off mousey #3 this weekend and presented the Three Birthday Mice to Fiona.
Fiona totally thought it was worth the wait. She showed her appreciation by introducing herself quickly to each mouse and then throwing them heartily to the floor.
We’re pretty sure they were throws of love.
Yeah – totally love.
