"Hey Mom, I forgot..."
These are the words I dread to hear. Especially at bedtime. Yet the other night, those 4 words were uttered by my 7th Grader (Twin A). For a moment I considered pretending that I didn't hear her. Running out of her room with a hasty "OkaygoodnightIloveyouMuah!Seeyoutomorrowbyebye!" seemed like such a good idea but instead, I found myself saying

I was looking forward to crawling into bed early. It had been a long day and I'm still recovering from a bad cold. Still, I got excited when I heard what my kid wanted. It's a treat whenever I can use my kid's request as an excuse to play with my toys! OF COURSE I will make those magnets!
Twin A had arranged with several of her friends to stay back after school to decorate a friend's locker. It's Amy's birthday and they were going to surprise her by filling her locker with confetti and balloons. Twin A thought that it'll be fun to use button magnets for a greeting. Her friend can even use them to stick notes on her locker afterwards.

Here are the finished buttons. I love that the magnets are encased inside so that the buttons look more finished (and professional!).
I hope Amy likes them. Happy Birthday, Amy!
