crisis was averted earlier this week after david's poor blanky suffered serious injuries!
this poor thing has been through the ringer! it was a gift from my sister when he was a baby, and he soon chose it as his favorite. its been chewed on, spilled on, peed on, and dragged! i've been nursing it along for a while, tying off areas that came undone. but this time was different. a huge chunk was pulling out, and it needed some evasive action. he was devastated. i was able to hide it from him for about a week until i came up with a plan. it was simple in my head, but have you ever tried to sew something that has been crocheted(sp?)? it is not easy, my friends! but i did it. it was the biggest pain-in-the-ass-thing i have EVER had to sew!!. i added a satin blanket border. it looks terrible! however, the smile on that kids face made it worth it! (and hopefully it will hold everything together for a while!)
I have been happily married for 9 years(we've been together for 15 though!). We have two beautiful kids. Emily is 6 and has recently been diagnosed with Dup15q syndrome(a very rare chromosomal abnormality). She is doing terrific in her school-her progress has been amazing! David is 4; He's our little monkey-always exploring something and trying to assert his independence!!
