Easter this weekend! I have a nagging 3 year old wanting chocolate and hot cross buns all the time. Have I bought them? Yes, we've had a few hot cross buns over the last few weeks and one pack of marshmallow eggs. I went with the 15 pack Cadbury hollow eggs for an Easter egg hunt - outside weather permitting although that would mean getting up incredibly early. Elijah is really looking forward to Easter this year which is nice, because I don't think he really got into it last year.
I haven't seen any Easter crafts come home from kindy which is a bit disappointing. His portfolio only has an introduction page, which wrongly states he threw a few tantrums in his first week. Anyone that knows Elijah can vouch that he's not really a tantrum throwing kid - one of the benefits of learning to talk early. I spoke with another mother and she actually does some of her own pages to add to it. I'm actually quite annoyed that he has been almost a whole term yet I have no idea what he does there. He even tells me he just plays around.
This morning he was up at the crack of dawn, so I had him hop into my bed to talk. I asked him what he wanted to talk about and he said 'can you test me?' So we played I Spy - he's fantastic with letters and their sounds so is quite good at I Spy. And being a kid he sees things I neglect to notice. He's also getting quite good at telling the time - normal for a 3 year old? Maybe.
I did buy a few more fabrics yesterday. I haven't decided what to use them for yet so they'll sit in a pile until I do!
My quilt is coming along nicely. I have decided to use a woollen blanket as batting as opposed to the batting sold in Spotlight. I like my blankets to have some weight and warmth. I'm still undecided on whether I will keep this one as it's pretty much a practise or whether I will sell it on Felt - yes I finally set up shop there (haven't listed yet but it's all ready to go). I'm not sure it is something anyone else will like! In the meantime I will be listing my sewing from 2008!
I doubt I will finish it today - I will need to finish it by hand and one of the things I don't really like is hand stitching! Plus there is a load of housework to be done.
