Coming up with an idea, sketching it out and then making it come to life. Some ideas work out better than others, but at worst the bad one is a learning experience and the best ones become great products.
MBD :How do you answer that in a paragraph? We have a saying in my family, it started with my mom. I'll digress for a second because I think the history is important. My mom's mom worked her whole life. Her life was serious, and hard...and I think sadly, it was boring. She had two kids and a full time job. Because my mom's house was so quiet and sterile growing up she wanted tons and tons of kids. But, she could only have two...I was the last. So she started doing foster care, then adopting. In 21 years she had 6 kids. Two biological, four adopted, two boys, four girls, two black, four white...etc etc. We have an awesome family portrait. Anyway, she liked to use the phrase "just us chickens." As in "tomorrow is a just-us-chickens-day." This came to mean a day spent together just having fun. That was the key...she didn't want life to be hard or sterile or quiet for her kids (and it wasn't). When I had my first child I starting using this phrase too. Since I work this phrase has a stronger meaning because not every day can be a just-us-chickens day...so when I tell my oldest that it's a "chickens day" (our shortened version) she gets very excited. To see her eyes light up knowing we get to spend the day together...it's the little things like that. My kids melt my heart on a daily basis. What could be better than that?
