Since I have been doing some quilting lately, I decided to do a small wall hanging for Bug's teacher this year as an end of the year gift. She was gracious to give me some class time and I took some fabric into the class and had them write their names on them with pastel oil crayons. It's a version of a yellow brick road pattern, and I think it's a little busy. I love the colors though, so that's something. He was very excited to be able to present it to her. She was a great teacher for him during his transition this year and we really do appreciate all that she has done for this class, and especially our kiddo. We have used the same fabrics to make a small Sudoku quilt for his other teacher, but it's still a work in progress. Hopefully by the end of summer it will be finished. Will post that when we get it finished.

M: You can't leave me here alone. Who will take care of me? (she's getting a little worried here)
Me: What do you need anyone to take care of? You can get your own cheese stick and yogurt and there is water in the fridge. You can go potty by yourself during the day and start your own DVD.
M: But I need more than that. (she's really upset now because I am still walking away)
Me: What else do you need?
M: Who will cuddle me? Who will make sure I can go to sleep at night? Who will read me books and help me find my lost stuff?
Me: I guess that's a Mom's job.
M: I need MY mommy. Come back inside now.
Me: (closing the trunk with my hands full) OK.
Then she happily went outside to play mud pies with her kitchen and the new toys from IKEA. I guess I won't run away today, but I am not ruling it out entirely.
