On a good day, parenting will test the integrity of your character. On a bad day, parenting will test your will to live. Parenting children with trauma histories will cause you to test the integrity of everything and everyone you thought you knew, for the rest of your life.

Mustache Cash-Stash

Commissioned quilt for GB's mom. Well, actually for her eldest daughter.

All folded up
On the bed
Sissy wanted to pose with the quilt

Just reminding my readers that I also do commissioned quilts.  Don't ask GB's mom how long this one took me.  I'll tell you, TOO long.  I had extenuating circumstances impeding my progress but she was obliging and understanding.  I promise to keep to reasonable deadlines in the future.
Visit my Etsy store (see link on right sidebar) or email me using the profile link.  If you've got something in mind, perhaps we can put our heads together so I can create an product you will love.

Not interested in purchasing a quilt but want to contribute?  I will still gladly accept your cast-off fabrics or unused batting and threads.  There is still a large portion of AB's dental bill to pay off.

Speaking of AB, he woke up bright-eyed and cheery this morning.  With his mustache filling in quickly and now some hair showing up on his chin, he is excited but apprehensive about entering manhood.  "Mom.  I have hair on my chin."

"Would you like to start shaving now?"

"NO!  I like it!"

"Ok."

We piled into the van and he was tapping and squealing.  "Mustache cash-stash! Mustache cash-stash!  Mustache cash-stash! I LIKE it!" *giggle giggle giggle*

That boy cracks me up.

And Sissy, after the past few days of ugh-omg-is-she-going-to-keep-spiralling-downward?! she was gaily watching the neighbor's work crew scrape off their old roof while she ate her breakfast.  WG asked her what she was looking at and without missing a beat, Sissy said, "they're just up on the roof for the view."

Guess they all just needed extra sleep because wow, last night was rough and we all sacked out early (their bedtimes as a consequence mine as a result of managing three wild kids).  We left for school this morning, everyone happy, Sissy begging to be allowed to work on the neighbor's roof, WG dragging my hairbrush to groom in the van and AB giggling over mustache cash-stash.

Onward and upward.
