The idea came from a small piece of material Tori had brought with her to our house that day. This sewing project started out with one child while everyone else was busy playing. It was peaceful and enjoyable even.
Then slowly everyone else trickled up to the table to see what we were doing.
And of course immediately wanted to make a doll of their own.
Because who wouldn't?!
And then the whole project turned into a crazy, rushed, cotton batton covered, can you help me, no me, this isn't working, can I make a transformer with a gun and a helmet that talks and makes shooting noises kind of a project!
But we got them all made before nap time and even squeezed in a quick lunch... so it was a success.
But it did give me a taste of what life would be like with only one child.
And I could list a lot of very positive words here... but I better not.
I suppose it is safe to say that you would be able to actually 'enjoy' more moments. And that part made me a little sad. But also more determined to try and 'enjoy' more moments with my four.
So here we go. Slowing down to enjoy more moments.
(So no more sewing dolls with more than one child at a time I guess! ;))
