My 4 yr old made a “Kawaii Kitty” toy for herself that we designed and she helped sew and stuff the thing.
She has her own tiny sewing machine, but she used the big one today.
Maisie (after using the big sewing machine): “OOOOH, IT’S SOOO FAST!”
Here are her vids- I think she’s adorable.
As she says “Please press LIKE and subscribe” (Actually, she’s just cool with the thumbs up thingies)
and her last video of the night
Four year old Maisie explains “The Bones of the Middle Ear and How We Hear” (and yes, she needs her hair brushed):
And, in this one, she tries to explain how airplanes fly:
I think my kid is stinking cute, super smart, though her English could use some improving (we’re multilingual)- and that EVERY PARENT/HUMAN should watch or let their kids watch Storybots on Netflix. She adores this show and learns SO much.
My friend dropped off a wonderful gift for Maisie- a mini Janome sewing machine that used to belong to her daughter (who is now a teen)!
My 4 yr old (who has excellent eye/hand coordination) was immediately enthralled and wanted to learn to sew right away.
Everyday we’ve completed a project- she’s doing microwavable bean bags filled with rice for ‘owwies’. She made a heart the first day, a triangle for her teacher the second day, and today we did a bigger triangle with rag box applique hearts and other decorations.
Maisie said she wanted to be like an elf and make a lot of them for Christmas 🎁 presents-
This teeny Janome is a workhorse! It sewed through thick woolen material with no issues and has 10 stitch settings!
Each day she gets more confident with this thing- I should probably start her on hand sewing as well.
I hauled out a brand new sewing machine that had still been in the box for 5 yrs and never touched for me to use next to hers. It’s a Brother computerized 130 stitch quilting/sewing machine and I love it so far, too!
she decided on how she would decorate ‘her side’ of the triangle
Been a rough few months. Post PE syndrome is no joke. Glad to still be alive, though.
Found out that the hospital I had my surgery in for the hysterectomy gave me an almost fatal superbug uti (they sent me home with a catheter AND TOLD ME TO REMOVE IT MYSELF)- a pseudomonas infection.
I spent a week at the local cancer center getting antibiotic infusion treatments via IV. Since then, I’ve been much less chipper and so tired.
I don’t trust American hospitals anymore.
I started a cpap machine for sleep apnea 2 days ago, after having a sleep study done last month. I was having moderate apnea.
This is a fantastic article:
Sorry for the short blog post, but super tired!
