Why I Should Pay More Attention To My Kids

The other week was a busy one for me, trying to sew up all the dresses. So, I guess I was distracted when Lydia was talking to me.

"Momma, I want to make a kite."
"Ok Lydia, that's nice."
"Momma, I need some fabric."
"Ok, Lydia."
"I'm going to use some out of this bag, you said it was scraps, so I can use them, right?"

"OOOH, pretty!"

10 minutes later....

"Momma, LOOK at my new kite!"

"Nice Lydia..."

"NO, Momma, LOOK!"

"OH! That's my Sis Boom fabric..."

"I KNOW! Isn't it pretty!"

"Yes, Lydia it is VERY pretty!" (and very expensive....)

So, with no further adieu, here are some more pictures of Lydia and her kite.



What would Jennifer think???

Don't you just love it when they pick the prettiest fabrics for their 'Projects'? Cute kite though! Does it fly?

She kept trying to get it to fly, but it wasn't windy enough! She it talking about hanging it up in her room now!

Heather said...

LOL! Well, she certainly made herself a beautiful kite (I always want to capitalize that word, too)!

Jennifer said...

I love that little girl sooooo much!!!! Her kite is amazing I want her to teach us!! Such pride in her kite. Thanks for sharing this with us!! all the best, Jennifer

I think Jennifer would think that Lydia has excellent taste in fabric! At least that's what I'm thinkin...

Maybe Lydia needs her own fabric stash?

Lori Seaborg said...

Aw, she looks so proud! I can't think of a better way to use such beautiful fabric. Your daughter has impeccable taste.
