So if not today when else can a Mum brag about her kidlets, regardless of talent. As a loving mum I dragged in Caleb to the bookshop in search of an embroidery book and Caleb stumbled upon a Softie book that he HAD to have. Here is our first, a goat - can’t you tell. He traced the pattern, cut it out and after a bash at feeding the fabric through the sewing machine we ended up with a few holes so he settled on the pedal of power while I fed it through. Great practice for a boy with fine motor issues and he LOVES it.
Once we were finished it was chauffeured to the bedroom to put with his “sewn treasure collections”. I asked what that was, he informed me that it was 0 before today and now it was 1. Guess what we will be up to on the weekend for the next year.
Happy Mother’s Day to all the ladies today, mine was spent mothering – should I be surprised and they really wanted to make the most out of it so started the day at 5:30 – so lucky!
