when she was mad and she slapped my arm. Hard.
I let her know that it hurt and it was not ok to hit me or anyone else. She did it again.
I told her the same thing again and let her know that there would be absolutely no movie tonight. You see, we have a bit of screen time before bed time. It’s our way of slowing down a bit before getting into bed and reading books. Not long, but long enough to sit still.
But not tonight.
You know if I could spend the rest of every minute in my life sewing or making something I would. So what did we do instead? We got out the fabric box and sewing machine. In a few days it would be cousin Siena’s 2nd birthday, and what were we going to make her? (our goal is to make as many, if not all, of our gifts). Izzy wanted to make her a doll. GREAT! Let’s draw a picture of what we should make, no mom, I don’t need to. (So me before I decided I had to absolutely plan everything out.) Ok, I could do this without a plan…so first we looked at the fabric and she suggested we start with a triangle. I cut a triangle (on the fold). Then I cut out rectangles for arms or legs. I got out the bag of feathers and Iz sat at the sewing machine.
Once the body was all stitched up, I cut circles out and she worked on the eyes.
Voila! Siena’s Owl.
I was pretty proud. She was too. We had so much fun together (we always do…). She loves to make as much as her mom and dad do.
