Tangled Sneakers

Carol Graham / Tangled Inklings
My daughter is expecting her first baby, and lives about 2 hours away from me.  We talk on the phone nearly everyday, sometimes for hours at a time.  I always want to give her my full attention, but sometimes I find myself getting distracted by various things that I could/should be doing.  One day when we were chatting, I was tapping on my shoe with a pencil, when I got the idea to tangle my sneakers.  Now, whenever she calls, I put the phone on speaker and grab my Identi-pen.  This helps me stay in the moment, focusing entirely on our conversation, and I am creating a unique pair of shoes in the process.  Her due date is in about 2 weeks.

UPDATE:  My beautiful baby girl,
