Yesterday I came home from meeting Shanna, with bags full of fabric and yarn from her.As I was going through all the stuff , I found some lovely flannel fabric. I happened to mention that they would make nice pajama pants.M standing nearby jumped on that one sentence! I was pestered all morning as to start making them pajamas.Word of truth ,I started to work on it just to shut him up!
Omy! you really have to see him nagging to believe! Pole opposite to the gentle soul that is my first born!
Would come by every five minutes no actually they are seconds_” Mamma, are you done yet?” like (10x n times), “mamma,can I wear it now? “_that I had no choice but to finish this straight at one sitting !
Good thing it did not take much time.Took about two hours max with all the zillion interruptions including needle breaking and trying to find the new set and burning my fingers really bad ,accidently holding a heated bulb!
I used elastic for holding the waist as it would be difficult for him to handle a drawstring.Since this a first time for me , I was very nervous about cutting the fabric.So I first cut it out on paper and then cut it out on cloth.
Oh and as he was getting ready for school today morning, I watched him, carefully fold his pajamas and place it on his bed , with a smile.I know, I should have just savored the moment , zipped my mouth and moved on.i
Instead brimming over with foolish pride that he can now fold his clothes neatly, I asked, “you like your new pajamas M?”. “Oh yes” he said , putting his skinny little arms around my neck.”I love them ! Mamma , if you don’t mind , can you please make another pair? you know ,to wear when this one goes to the washing machine?”
As I am now trying to soothe down my unbearably burning right hand finger tips and typing with my left hand, I am torn between calling him my enabler and my little pest! 😀
