Footie Pajamas

The other night while I was hard at work on my website, I told Molly to go put some footie pajamas on Maddie. She came back and said that she couldn't find any. I was so in my own little world, that I just told her to go back and look again. She didn't come back for about fifteen minutes, but I didn't notice because I was so 'locked in' to the computer (bad mama!). When she finally came back she said, "Mom, I couldn't find those footie pajamas that you were talkin about; so I just made her some." Well THIS got mamas attention! I turned and looked at this.......
Molly had found a sweat suit, put the top on Maddie, got the pants, and sewn a sock onto the leg. Footie pajamas. Just like I said. She couldn't find what I was talking about, but she had to obey, so she just worked it out. I laughed so hard! I told Molly that she was absolutely the coolest kid on earth. Can you believe how inventive? I was just so proud! She did a pretty good job too, not bad at all for a six year old. I'm so glad I got this girl a sewing machine early!
I will try to have the single crochet tutorial up this week, so stay tuned.

What a hoot! Very creative, Molly...and good girl for obeying your mama! That makes God happy when you obey! I enjoyed catching up on your blog after being gone for a couple of weeks. Looking forward to learning how to crochet better with your tutorials! I even have some great new crochet hooks to try out...wonder where I got those?! :)

You have a genius on your hands. She's an adult in a little person's body.

Amazing child you have there.
