We stayed in jammies this morning for a long time. Then Bridget scampered outside to play with some neighbor kids and Lucy was still sleeping, and Phoebe and I decided to start on a tote bag sewing project.
Let’s just say that my respect for those who know how to sew is increased every time I work on a sewing project.
After some frustrations with the project, Phoebe took a break while I ripped out some seams. Then Lucy (who had eventually meandered out and gotten herself a bowl of cereal) asked, “Can I try to go into the attic?”
We don’t really have an attic. We have a little crawl space. My first thought was “No.”
And my second thought was, “Why not?”
I just read a post by my friend Dawn who recommended that as parents, we should “Say ‘yes’ as much as possible.” So I did.
Of course, Lucy’s sisters had to join her. They are having a blast, just sitting up there, eating M&Ms and chatting.
