At what age to little girls start practicing their skills to be a mommy? My princess is weeks shy of being 4 and she's already started being a little mommy to her brother.
She cuts his food when the pieces are too big. She really wants to change his diaper...that's a little scary for me. So she gets his diaper, the wipes and I let her put the powder on his bottom. She feels like she's helping.
Today, I went into his room when I heard him making noises and there she was trying to get him out of his crib. She's such a good little helper.
With my Buddy being in school all day, she's getting lots of time to be the big kid at home. It's going to be a nice year having her here and helping her develop into the little girl she's going to be.
I have some big ideas/plans for her birthday this year. It's up for debate if she'll have a party with friends or not. She's never had one, but we'll be moving the week of her birthday. I want her to feel special, but life might be pretty crazy right then.
I got a pattern from my mother-in-law who is an amazing thrifter. She found it one day at a garage sale. It's full of patterns for little girl fancy dresses. I so want to make one for my Princess. Something to dress-up in. Something that she can feel fancy! Every little girl needs to feel fancy!
But I gotta buy fabric and find time to sew. It just seems like there aren't enough hours in the day.
I need to stop complaining. I totally want to make at least one for her birthday, so I better get shopping!!
Do you ever get into a funk? How do you fight it?
--I feel like I'm in one now and I just want to break through it!
What was the last project you crafted?
--I haven't made anything in a long time. I guess I did help the kids make cards for Oswald, does that count?
