I talk to my kids all the time and colours are a fun thing to learn but she's only one and barely talking so obviously it ended up like this:
Yeah. That's way more fun!!
One of the things I learnt after having my first child (and didn't fully achieve until after my second) was how crucial it is to do things for you. I do a lot for my family but I'm doing them no favours if I'm not taking time for myself and relaxing. So sometimes the two combine, though not often because let's face it sewing time is really more enjoyable (more peaceful, focused and probably safer) when they aren't around. There are things they can watch me do, or get involved in and occasionally we do that - like picking fabric, helping baste (the older kids), working on little projects and they even like to look at patterns in my sewing books to tell me what to make next. After all I also want to teach them that having a hobby is fun and there's no better way than for them to see me doing what I love.
We gave it to him at school this morning and just in time because his tooth fell out before school so he can use it tonight! At pick up he very sweetly gave me this home made jam as a thank you (thanks to his lovely mum!):
I am very in love with the label!
