Petals quilt done and talk with a two year old....


Well for this little family, today was the start of summer vacation...I know a lot of moms get nervous and prefer when school is going...I like having the kids home...For one thing, I get to sleep in! Woohoo! Olivia was all sad about leaving her first grade teacher...I just love when a child gets a really great teacher. It makes all the difference in the world as far as school goes. She took her a card and flowers and was so excited to give them to her. I signed her up for a day camp today so she still gets to play with other kids...We are a little bit isolated in our neighborhood and I want her to keep her friendships over the summer. I got the petal quilt done too and that felt pretty good....I free motioned the heck out of it and just played around with different patterns...also used buttons for the center of the flowers. Even though the colors are not really "my kind of thing" I like how it looks... Andrew has three favorite new words lately...WHY, BECAUSE and Nutting (nothing)....You wonder where this comes from, and then we have a conversation that goes like this...(..me:)"Andrew, you need to get your shoes on."( him: )"Why?"

(me:)"Because we are going to the store, where are your shoes?" (him) Why?" ( me:) "Because" "where did you last see your shoes?"( him: )"nutting" What do you mean nothing, why don't you know where they are?" (him:) (you guessed it...) "because".......the moral of this story is "don't ask, just go look and save your breath....."

Yes we hear the "why" here too a lot ! LOL Or I ask that we put on something or do something and Melody says, "How about we not." I love the way the quilt turned out. It looks so fun! I need to finish my quilt top soon now that I have my machine working well again so this one you finished motivates me. :)

lol Melinda, Trevin does the same thing. And what is it with kids never being able to find their shoes. I got home at 10:30 last night from trucking and had to go steal the grandkids of course. Tried finding shoes and gave up and just carried him to my house. Let his Mom find them this morning, lol. Love the petals on the edge. Especially the black and white pieced in. Makes it pop especially on the yellow. Well done. Hugz, Scary
