kids.

Dear Oldest Daughter wanted three of these.
I wasn't going to make them....
and
I wasn't going to make them....
and....
I wasn't.......

But she had some sweet words.

"I'll never ask for ANYTHING again!"......
"I could do it, but you're so much better at these things!"......
"My sewing machine's not working!"......
"You're the BEST mom EVER!!!"...
"I LOVE the stuff you make for me!".........
and ON...and On...it went......

I CAVED in.
I did it.
I smiled.

She said...."Now...aren't you happy you made them??"
I don't know?
Am I?

She was doing the same kind of thing years ago....

Kids!!!!

  15. those cubes are great! thanks for the link to the tutorial (and I have to say, as an oldest daughter, that sounds like a youngest daughter routine your girl pulled off! My little sister and I are always jesting about how she gets whatever she wants out of people - ha)
