WFMW—Albuquerque the Turkey

Ah, the joys of preschool humor. Sometimes they don’t even know they’re being funny… For instance, the day Alex came home from preschool singing (to the tune of “Clementine”):

 Albuquerque is a turkey
And he’s feathered and he’s fine
And he wobbles and he gobbles
And he’s absolutely mine.
He’s the best pet that you can get yet,
Better than a dog or cat.
He’s my Albuquerque turkey
And I’m awfully proud of that.
And my Albuquerque turkey
Is so happy in his bed,
‘Cause for our Thanksgiving dinner…
We had spaghetti instead!

Yesterday, Alex brought Albuquerque home. It’s such a charming craft project, I decided to share it. It requires:

  • Paper lunch bag
  • Construction paper
  • Googly eyes

It’s so simple a project, I’m not going to give instructions—I’m just going to show you a front and back shot.

This week is a really busy one—much more than usual. I have two long meetings this week—one today and one tomorrow—and doctor appointments for the boys this afternoon (during naptime, of course; when else do you go to the doctor?)—and a Pampered Chef party to host tomorrow night—and on Monday, Christian & I sang one of our neighbors into Paradise. Plus, Nicholas has a fever, and my lungs are coated with gunk that won’t cough up. Thus my hasty and belated posting this week. Hopefully things will settle down soon…
