A Week of Ducks

Last week was one of those funny weeks…and I realized that it was a week of ducks!!

In my preschool movement class we are wrapping up the year with all of the most amusing games and activities. So, believe it or not that silly game where you sit in a circle and pick a “goose” to chase you is still one of the all-time favorites. If you ever need to laugh, just get a group of 2 year olds to play Duck, Duck, Goose with you. The reason is that when you finally pat that one chosen person on the head and say "goose," every single child in the circle gets up and starts to squeal with delight. Everyone running in different directions. It is the most hilarious moment of group “JOY!” I have learned that clapping my hands and saying, “Park It!” Gets everyone to come back to the circle and sit down waiting for the next duck and the group frenzy that follows.

So not to be outdone by the duck and the goose….I saw a friend of mine for dinner. This particular friend has entered into that amazing chapter of being the “Mother of the Bride.” Oh, it is always fun to hear what is going on with the wedding drama. When I sat down to join her last week, I looked down and realized she had on the bracelet that I had made her when she had just been sporting her new title of M.O.T.B. 

She called me one day and said, “OH, Corinne, I need a duck (or, for some, "duct") tape bracelet. I need it to be silver with blue elastic. It is becoming so difficult to keep my mouth shut that the bracelet will remind me to TAPE IT!" 

She had already had a bad week and her mouth was getting her into way too much trouble.  Since the wedding is still two months away, she has been wearing the bracelet faithfully and I think it is working!!!

Last week was all about ducks! Wonder what animal will cross our path this week!!!

Have a wonderful week!!!
