Let's do the Fork in the Garbage Disposal, Ding-Ding-Ding-Ding Da-Ding-Ding-Ding-Ding

I love weekends. I love working air conditioning. Put the two together in August in Kansas and I'm a happy camper.

So happy, in fact, that I even Sewed Something. Fuckin' amazing, right?


One week after Griffin lost his third tooth (be amazed by my awesome time management skills), I finally sewed Griffin a tooth pillow.

Aaron was disappointed because it wasn't exactly like his growing up. Griffin was disappointed because it wasn't an owl pillow like he had drawn two days previously. Darwin was disappointed that I was giving it to Griff and not him.

Apparently, my loser skills in disappointing people are still strong. GO ME.


And on the back, a wee little pocket for teeth. That is just big enough to shove my finger in if necessary.

The rest of weekend was spent bitching about the heat (don't know why I needed to mention that, that's a given) and cooking. Gyro meat in the crockpot, tzatziki sauce, Greek salad, crash potatoes and then yesterday a "fake" Chinese takeout that took me an hour and a half to make. Nothin' like a full belly and cool home, I say.

well, hey, we don't always sew for other people - even if it is for other people....

we sew cuz it feels good.

(and what are crash potatoes and i wish i could eat at your house).

Ooh, there's gluten free gyro meat? I have been craving tzatziki.

And that's motherhood in a nutshell ... giving your all and receiving whining in return. They'll appreciate it all a lot more later on when they look back on it. (That's my personal delusion, anyway.)

What a lovely pillow!
My daughter doesn't want one, because she's freaked out at the idea of some fairy in her room.

Those boys are all crazy. That pillow ROCKS!

The food sounds great - do you have recipes? The pillow is great!

Great tooth pillow! I always wanted to have one like that for my kids, but I can't sew!

That pillow is darling!

They are lucky to have you...if they don't straighten up, you can bring your fake Chinese take-out here! Of course I don't have air conditioning...but I'd be willing to put it in if you make me one of those pillows...
