I try to make my boy understand that there might be only one gift under the tree, it was a hard year, so I only bought a Lego board and a little writing board and I could not find the first one,
I love that he is a very simple and happy kid, he gets happy for even a pair of socks, and I don't tell him that anyone is bringing him gifts but the people who loves him, he does not get the idea of asking for something specific neither.
Still, I wanted to give him a gift, but during the day I didn't do anything, he went to bed late, and I was thinking maybe I was not going to make it.
But then look at all those gifts, true is, I cheat a lot.
All the wrapping is something else, a bag, a pillow cover.
The quilt was started over a year ago, and the border is not finish yet.
I cut lots of fabric that I bought thinking on him, but then got afraid to use them in a not good enough project, and so they were just waiting.
As I said I did cheat a lot, in the sense that this books were already his, but I had not unpack them from Mexico so he didn't remember them anymore.
The wood letters were mine as well as the Lego.
And I decided to make for him the Earth from here, it was so much fun to sew it.
And now to sleep I go, birds are singing already and light is out and I get this great feeling again, that being mother is so easy, you just listen and love. And enjoy!
