Not BIG security issues, just little baby/toddler security issues. My older daughter had a blanket, well actually two blankets, but I am not sure that she knew that. You see, she carried one of those white thermal receiving blankets everywhere she went. I kept one hidden so that we could always have a Clean Leave the House Blanket on hand. My younger daughter was much easier, she had her thumb, always available and always with her. A little harder to break than the blanket security. It was somewhere in the first month of kindergarten when she was trying to hold her pencil and write with her thumb still in her mouth, right handed, right-thumbed, picture it?
Now for the grand kids: Tyler had a Binky, a certain Binky that he had to have. I had about six of them at my house, never wanting to be out of one and not be able to find one. He hasn't used it in two years, I recently found one in my nightstand. See how often I clean drawers?
Logan has a blue blanket. He loves the silky edge and loves the corners of it. I like it, he reminds me of Linus with it.
Gracelyn has three Binky's, one that she has to have in her mouth and one for each hand. She plays with them,she clinks them together and that is how she goes to sleep. Her mom does not allow her to have them in public, sometimes she cries for them..."Binky, Binky, Binky" Her mom was the thumb sucker, sometimes God just gives you these little things, I choose to think it is His form of motherly justification. Same with when she sasses her mom, I just laugh! (behind my hand that is)
And then Kendall, no Binky, no blankie, but another B word....Blueberries. She can be screaming, whip out those blueberries and she starts eating them and she goes into a trance like state. Maybe somebody should do a study on that....hmmm.
Mom and I took a purse class at Sew Elegant in Clarion on Saturday. If you are local and have never been in that shop, stop by. The ladies who work there are so nice and so helpful and special thanks to Pam, our teacher! Can't wait to take another class.
This was the purse that I made and although we didn't finish it in class, I had to rush home and get it done on Saturday night. Dear hubby and I did have plans for Saturday night but Saturday morning in the first mile of a 5K, dear hubby went down...hip issues and he spent the rest of the weekend in the recliner with an ice pack.
Mom gave me these books of sample fabrics on Saturday and I started these place mats on Saturday evening. I also have enough to make a red set and a blue set and an orange set and ....well you get the picture, I'll see what I get done. I really liked the fabric though and I happened to have the backing piece in my stash so it was a true reduce, reuse, recycle project. Gotta love those!
