A day in the life

of a mom of 2!

I have a 3 1/2 year old and an 8 month old. Somedays you get alot done and some days not so much! Today was a not so much day!
Waylon is my 8 month old. Honestly, he is a pretty easy baby! If he has a full belly he is happy and he likes playing with his toys in his crib. I consider the crib the safe zone, away from his sister.
Jolie is 3 1/2 and she isn't difficult either! She is just at the age that it is really hard to keep her occupied for longer than 10 minutes!

So this morning, My husband had left to go out on a Motorcycle run and the kids and I were just going to hang out at the house today! Waylon was sleeping in his crib and Jolie was watching cartoons on my bed, so I decided to take a shower. I heard the door close to my room and really didn't think to much of it. She usually just finds something else to do. Well today that something else consisted of sticking a clear plastic bead up her nose. Yep and of course it got stuck.

I heard her crying when I got out of the shower and didn't really know what to expect. I found her in her room and she was having a fit. I asked her what was wrong and she just kept saying her nose hurt. I finally got her to explain better and figured it out.

So a few of our hours were spent in the ER today getting it removed. She did really well and was pretty brave! I can't really say to much! I had my parents taking to the ER all the time when I was kid! Heck I was there last month when I cut myself with my rotary cutter!

So that is a day in the life of a mother of 2....never know what it will be like, but love every minute with your kids!

Simplicity 2685 View D

I have made this bag a few times! The fabric is always the same. I have used different colored lining and a different button but it has always been the same exterior!
First thing about this bag, is that it is huge! I love the look of it but if I was to ever make it for my self, I would shorten in by about 5 inches!
I have always made this as a custom order and the first time I made it, the bag went straight into my ETSY shop!
This bag is really easy to put together. The most complicated part might be the interior zipper pocket, if you have never done one! The pleats are simple and so pretty!
This bag was a custom order and the buyer wanted the velcro added! It is to display the Army name tapes! One will say the spouses last name and the other will say US ARMY. I really hope she enjoys this bag!
