The mom's song

This song is a laugh, If you're a mum have a listen.

Oh, what a flurry of activity a birthday party brings.
It's past midnight and bed is in the distant future.
The birthday boy decided on a dragon's outfit, so I made a hat with stuffed spikes, thinking this will do the trick, well, um, no it didn't, birthday boy politely asked me if I could still sew, as he would like bone-crunching teeth and firery eyes. AND he told me that he was turning six and did I think that he wanted to go as a baby dragon!
Hence why I am still up, dragon suit take 2
Maybe this is how it's always going to be, you give birth in the middle of the night(well I always did) and of course you're awake, so someone out there thinks you should be awake every anniversary there after.
Whilst the Husband sleeps....

Miss Little Red Riding Hood

Holidays seem a distant memory, We've been busy around here, preparing for Joseph's Six birthday party on monday.
The theme is 'Fairytale characters', The three boys cannot seem to make up their minds on what to wear, so I started with this little one.
The pattern is in the latest ottobre for kids. I got the fabric from my Ebay stash, it's wool and cashmere, oh so soft. I lined it with a winter weight red gingham, it took no time to make, it was a very simple pattern.
I think it needs a skirt, what do you think?(yeah, yeah, yeah, I know, it's not her party:))
Now back to cooking the curry puffs.
