What? You're kids don't iron?


During the holiday gift making rush we all came down with stuffiness. It wasn't fun and was a reminder AGAIN that we needed more hankies! So we finally whipped some up from an old sheet that had lost it's elastic.


The kids were very excited to help with the ironing. Ark Boy even tried his hand (or more foot?) at sewing by pushing the pedal. When he tried doing the sewing entirely by himself I realized that straight lines are something I'm a little ocd (understandably, I'd argue!) about so we may wait a bit longer before hands get in on the sewing action. I'm thinking about drawing straight lines on paper and having Ark Boy sew without thread to show him how to do a straight line.
