Let me introduce you to the most favourite pair of pants ever to come off my sewing machine. What you might be thinking, they don't look that special, has she been sniffing sewing machine oil for too long, there all right but really!?
Look closely, these babies have been overlocked by Caleb. That's right, on Australia Day he spent the arvo sitting on my lap, pulling out the pins and feeding it through the machine and snipping threads. Woo hoo. Who is that sitting alone on the couch watching the cricket by himself, oh dear, it's Daddy. Yeah dude, can't chat gotta sew! Never a prouder Mum, I have some more pants already pinned and ready for action since he has been asking to do more.
He is starting his new kindy next week and I just realised all his pants are store bought ones and with the buttons and zips he can't pull them up by himself so he needs some Mum specials so that he can go by himself to the bathroom. (How do normal kids do it). Kids with Asperger's are notorious for fine motor skills so off into Team Bug and Pop we go. Since he is going to a completely different place to last year we have told him he is off to school and he couldn't be more excited! He wants to walk there by himself he told me, so funny (yeah right, not to mention that it would probably take him an hour and a half).
