Happy Women’s Validation Day! (aka, Disgruntled* Female Hallmark Employees’ Day.) Around here February is birthday month. Husband’s and Baby’s are three days apart, and this year was Baby’s first! So that means we have...
a great Mexican spread,
and, of course, chocolate cake.
So now I have a walking, teething, almost-talking little person to run around after. Luckily, he still takes two naps a day, so I have time to work on this:
Yes, I went ahead and bought the pattern. And after hyperventilating looking through 45 pages of instructions, I calmed down, watched a few videos online about sewing, and announced to Husband, “I can do this!” It’ll take months, but I’m enjoying the process. It will be a present for Baby’s second birthday.
(*This morning when I thought of the word disgruntled, I wondered, “If disgruntled means to be discontented, what does gruntled mean?” I didn’t even think it was a real word. But, lo and behold, it is. It means to put in a good humor. So, I hope all of you were gruntled at some point today!)
