My children have never been the best at waiting, and their gift-giving style is no exception. Christmas is coming, but not soon enough. My youngest came home the other day with a wonderful gift he made in his afternoon art class, a classic woven potholder, most likely created on one of the plastic looms of my youth, though he swears he and a friend did it with just their hands. "It's easy!" However he made it, I love that potholder, as useful as it is sweet.
