Today I was super mom!

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.
Behold Ross!


Ross smiling!


Ross belongs to my dad and stepmom and could look either very cute or very creepy in this picture.

HAHAHAHA.. thanks for leaving a comment on my blog! ROSS ROCKS! He looks like someone just told him to smile for the camera and he did not want to - so he put on one of those fake smiles. Totally adorable! Thanks again for stopping by. Congrats on getting married! woo hoo!
