My daughter made this way back in elementary school–we didn’t date it, so I can’t say exactly when, but it had to be first or second grade. Or earlier. I keep thinking that I should try to have it laminated, but my wife thinks that doing so would ruin it and we should just “let it run it’s course.”
Me, I want to save it forever–quickly summing up the differences in our perspectives. I am a soppy sentimentalist, she’s more of an in-the-moment realist. The mix has worked out pretty well for the past twenty years–and, hey, without her I’d never have this cool decoration, nor the countless great Christmas memories we’ve accumulated over those years.
