When my friend, Ladonna, called to remind me of the deadline, I tried to be zen about it and told myself, "Just do what you can before the deadline and send it in." But I couldn't. So on the day of the deadline, I loaded the dining table with a ton of art supplies and barely parented all day to get this thing done. I think we got to the post office at 4:29pm.
I really enjoyed the process, and let it just all come intuitively. Soleil loved playing along for about the first 2 hours, and then she was over it. (Yes, I parked her in front of the tv. Yes, I am a horrible mom.)
Here it is.
