Confession #1: Our Little Miss B sometimes crawls in bed with us and I am too lazy to take her back to bed.
Truth: I never did this with our boys. NEVER! We diligently walked them back to their rooms and made sure they were ok before returning to our room.
Fact: I don’t really care that much that B sleeps in our bed. She doesn’t do it every night and when she does, it’s often past 4:00 am so it’s not a big deal.
Unless: Unless I end up in the middle somehow. It hurts my back and I must sleep with my legs curled up and that doesn’t work if she sneaked her way onto my side and pushed me over while I slept.
Confession #2: I still have laundry to do from Hawaii. We’re talking mounds of it around here. It’s getting ridiculous. I’ve set my alarm twice to get up and fold some before my kids woke up, but both time Little Miss B is in our bed and I don’t want to wake her up.
Story: This week B climbed into bed at who knows what time. I didn’t even realize it until she started to kick my curled up legs at about 6:00 am and say, “Mom! Mom! Move your legs. MOVE!” (This 3 year old has attitude). So I tried to move around and she kept scooting over so I squished more and more to Dillon’s side and was actually doing what she told me because I wasn’t awake all the way! Seriously, as soon as I realized what was happening, I sat up in bed and looked at that impossible little girl and said, “This is MY bed! Not yours! If you aren’t comfortable, go back to your bed!” I know, I’m such a good mom. She refused, and rather than wake up my husband and her at 6 in the morning I just got out of bed and started to address our Christmas cards.
Moral: If you ever decide setting your alarm to fold laundry is a good idea, you are too ambitious. It’s better to be a lazy bum and sleep in as long as your kids will let you. Lesson. learned.
What does this have to do with an apron for my beloved little three year old? Mostly the fact that if I still have laundry from when we went to Hawaii, and my house is a disaster and I’m still getting Christmas gifts ready and wrapped, I was NOT going to be able to find time to enjoy making her two princess dresses like I had planned. I had even bought all the fabric before we left for Hawaii. Bummer. I really wanted to but the thought of it really stressed me out. I was so happy to be at Walmart one day and find princess dresses for $10.00! Hallelujah!
I still love to make at least one special thing from me for my kids, and I’ll show you tomorrow what I made my boys, but this was it for B since she’s getting a play kitchen from Santa this year. So fast and easy, and I finally got to use this cute lemon fabric I’ve had for quite a long time.
I can’t wait to see her playing kitchen with this on!
