I'm not sure if it's the social aspect of being around the public or just general bored-ness with being at home during the day, but lately Kee-ku has been on a mission to visit "a store!" every time we leave the house. I'm no shop-a-holic (I have yet to see a deal so good I will brave ANY store on Black Friday), but sometimes as a mom you have to figure out compromises.
So right after we drop Little Miss off at school in the morning and Kee-ku starts chanting, "Please a store, Mommy?!" from the back, we battle. Some days he gets a flat out "no" and we go home. Some days we have practical errands that need to be run, so we'll hit up the grocery store to knock some stuff off our list. He doesn't seem to care which store we go to (amazingly, the kid can spend time in 3 different stores and still not want to go home), so sometimes I go to Mommy's happy place (where else, the fabric store) with him and Kiwi in tow.
Generally, he doesn't fuss too much if I linger over an aisle for too long. Which is how I ended up discovering this book:
|All Sewn Up by Chloe Owens|
Anyone read any good crafty books lately? So I can . . . um . . . not covet them with you?
