First Ski of the Year

November 19, 2010 Leave a comment

Yesterday I took my kid skiing. She’s going to be great at it, I can tell. She loves to be in the woods and likes to ski. If only she could do 20 km instead of just the 1km we did yesterday. After about 20 falls she uttered,

“Mama you should take a picture, it’s beautiful!”

In this moment

A blog I sometimes read, Soulemama, has a Friday ritual.

A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.”

Here’s mine

I should be flattered

I made this sweater for L.

pink sweater

I finished it on Tuesday. Today is Thursday, she’s worn it every day since then (has it on now).

A few nights ago I experimented and made some undies for the big girl. (That Darn Kat pattern, recycled t shirts) Fun, but not necessarily a cost-effective way of keeping your child in underwear.  Anyhow, last night as Erin’s picking out her clothes to wear to school today she wants to wear:
*the new undies
*a long john shirt I made for her
*a pair of polarfleece leggings I made for her
*her new knit sweater (no picture, it’s a little ugly, but she loves it)
*handknit socks.

I gather all the stuff together, with the exception of the socks. There aren’t any pairs of socks available that I knit. She goes to bed, I think that’s the end of it. This morning she had a fit when I told her to just put some socks on. It’s about 5 degrees out mind you.

Sigh. I guess she wanted to be surrounded in Mama-made. Someday she’ll hate homemade right?

In the meantime, I’ll enjoy the mama-made stretch.
