|C-Man's Cub Scout gear|
|The leotard she wanted to wear (the one with the rhinestones)|
We returned home to use our remaining 20 minutes before we needed to head to ballet and I remember that I have been meaning to give one of the teachers at the studio a baby gift. I get the children settled with a snack and run upstairs to sew the blanket. The fabric had been purchased, cut, and was just sitting in my chair patiently waiting its turn for attention. I sit down and with the first stitch my machine makes a crazy sound I have never heard before. I make every attempt to figure out this crazy sound and desperately try to fix my machine. When the realization hits that I am going to have to take to the repair store to have it repaired tears fill my eyes. Plans for this weekend include little more than making the baby bedding for my sister-in-law's precious new little one who makes her arrival in late December. Sweet sister-in-law lives in Dallas and Mimi & Pappy (my in-laws) are headed to Dallas next weekend. This weekend was my only chance to make the bedding unless I ship it to Dallas.

Once we arrive at ballet, Honey texts me to tell me that C-man is over the moon excited about the Cub Scout gear I purchased and has flown through his first three lessons in his book and is extremely excited about his den meeting this Sunday.
The evening ended with me falling asleep putting the Baby to bed. She had trouble because she had taken a nap during the drive to purchase the cub scout gear. Being a 'night person' anyway, she was wide awake at 9:45 p.m. and in need of at least 10 stories. I read 2 and offered to lay down with her because I was exhausted.
I hope y'all have a fabulous Friday. I'm excited to not have 'one of those days' today but am also thankful for all the time at home with the children - even 'those days'.
