Today I accomplished these amazing feats with TWO children:
1. I changed 4 poopy diapers (2 belonging to a child that is not my own)
2. I somehow convinced Felix to spend only 1 hour playing in his room before taking his nap. He took a beautiful nap from 2-4:30. I can't remember the last time that happened.
3. I observed, clapped, and offered special treats after Felix peed in his potty. It has been many moons since this has happened.
I also finished up a tote bag, pieced parts for a wristlet (and freezer paper stenciled it!), made a strap to finish a bag that has been laying next to my machine unfinished for a while now, and managed to break a needle on a giant button. Have you ever broken a sewing machine needle? It is scary. S-C-A-R-Y! One time a piece of one actually flew up and hit me in the face right under my eye. It stung. I was thankful that it was my cheekbone taking the hurt instead of my cornea. Luckily today's accident involved no shooting sharp things, but created a half finished top stitching nightmare. I really don't like it when that happens.
I successfully finished my first creation from Japanese sewing book on Saturday with good and bad end results. I'll see if I can get Josh to take a picture later.
After all this potty business and danger talk, I better leave this with something awesome.
Ross belongs to my dad and stepmom and could look either very cute or very creepy in this picture.
