This time the distraction was sewing the kids kimono-style pajamas. On Monday they choose their own fabric from the fabric store. Both picked fabrics related to their obsessions -- aiplanes for Jude and horses for Indigo. I promised I would sew them before we left for our trip. Little did I know that they would take me so long to sew. Thus, I have been up until 2 am the last two nights (mornings?) sewing pajamas for my kids.
I finished Jude's first:
Indi was pleading with me to sew her's, so I finished her pajama pants while she napped:
Then I stayed up to work on her kimono top. Finished. Hallelujah!
I guess this means I need to start packing. Much less exciting...
Speaking of packing and exciting things, we are contemplating taking the kids with us to Ethiopia when we travel to bring the new baby home. We're thinking of spending six weeks or so there. I will fill you in on more of the details as we learn more about it ourselves. We are researching the risks and benefits of doing this. If anyone has experience with traveling like this with small children, please leave me a comment. I would love to learn about your experience!
