From the City...
So it was my birthday yesterday and I've been pretty down and out the past couple of days with a nasty case of mastitis ( I know right, a year of bfeeding and I get it now???) so if this beautiful little ditty didn't just brighten my day right on up...a simply lovely little pendant with my little ones name and birthstone.
Laura and I have a constant gift giving cry challenge whereby we give a gift hoping that we'll make the other person cry (twisted, right?) and I won't lie, she just might have gotten me with this one, or maybe it was just dust, that's it, dust.
To get one for yourself (likely with someone else's name on it, cause it might be weird if you got mine), go here and check out Belleza Mia's shop.
Theo and I have a constant mitten battle these days. I put them on, he takes them off and this goes on for about the entirety of our walk until I finally just give up let him fend for himself. A little harsh huh? While I'm letting my kids hands freeze I notice that my friend and walking companion has these amazing mitten sock combination things. So I decided to whip up a pair and share it with you. They work pretty well, I must say so myself.
Point 1: me. Point 0: Theo
Mittens (0.50 at goodwille, yesssss!)
1 pair of adorable socks that you can't give up cause you love them but they don't fit anymore
1. Marvel at your materials
2. Snip off the tip of the socks
3. Sew the inside of the sock to the inside of the mitt, challenging but do-able.
I won't lie, I swore a little bit during this step but I got it done.
4. Hand stitch the last little part which you were unable to finish on the machine (about an inch0
5. Put them on your kid and do a little dance because you won.
