As I've begun the tedious (for me) and difficult (for me) process of picking up about 500 stitches around the collar of the woodland sweater, I don't have anything new on that front.
So what I did accomplish last night was setting up my first freecycle drop. Someone was kind enough to take some empty baby food jars off of my hands, and someone else will be enjoying my favorite pair of maternity shorts this summer.
I also sewed a button back on to lil' b's Hawaiian shirt, and hopefully set up a Fair Trade agreement with a friend... my sewing/darning skills in exchange for her delicious breads and organic produce. I'm hoping to lure my homebrew friend into a beer/wine swap, but we shall see.
But mostly, I tortured myself over lil' b's new penchant for requesting time-outs. He has been refusing to go to sleep at night, opting instead to say "It's okay, I'd like a time-out. I'll be very quiet!" and go bounding down to his time-out chair with much enthusiasm. I don't want to be mean, but I don't know what to do with a child who likes time-outs so much. Any suggestions?
