They say that life returns to normal once your youngest child turns 3. I wonder if that’s true? My life has changed so much over the last years that I no longer no what “normal” really means, but I can’t deny the fact that as Rodrigo grows up our daily life becomes a little easier. He’s getting more independent, patient and talkative and wants to be a part of everything we do around the house.
Like most children, he finds the sewing machine utterly fascinating. He likes the sound it makes and he enjoys the light on and off, guiding (pulling) the fabric and playing with pins. He’s already helped me stuff a toy and he loves fabric scraps (especially novelty ones): he presses them with a cool iron and carefully puts them away in the fabric cupboard. Above all, he mimics everything I do.
In a month’s time we’ll start all over again!…
