using the fabric and pattern I bought last month. I'm actually quite impressed with myself for getting it done (I even figured out how to machine-sew buttons!). It did come at a price. I had to be extra-b*tchy Mom all day last Saturday (Z and M kept coming in and asking me for things, "Mom, do you have any thread?" "Mom can you tie my shoe?" "Mom, do you know where X is?" After about a dozen interruptions from each of them, E, who had been outside, minding his own business, came in to ask me something, only when he shouted, "Mom!" from the bottom of the stairs, I had heard that word one too many times and snapped, "WHAT!!!" Poor kid. I had to go outside and toss him the wiffle ball about a hundred times to make up for my meanness.
