Finn and I went to JoAnn today to buy a book called Let's Draw Happy People. I thought it would be great fun to try and practice together. We found the book and that atrocious batman fabric as well. Explaining to him that the lady wasn't cutting his Batman blanky was interesting, he thought the entire bolt was his (shivers down my spine). I had plans on trimming the eyesore with one equally tacky satin double fold, but back at home I scrapped the idea and went for a white serged edge that took less than one minute. The entire time Finn is jumping up and down, tripping on the cord and screaming; " I AM BATMAN!!!!!". Meanwhile I am thinking: "This is unquestionably the ugliest, most yucky feeling thing I have ever made, it will be his favorite for sure..."
So like I said, Love can be ugly sometimes, but it's so so good.
Maybe I should forgive him his bad taste, he is extremely color blind. It's a challenge at that age when everything is color coded. As I am typing this he is getting frustrated with crayons 'that are the same' or in the case of the grey/white one "doesn't work". Maybe a little nap under the Batman cape will settle things down? Dream on.
Just a reminder that I am answering comments directly on the blog from now on, not that I get that many, except from you Lisa love!
