The Wisdom and Tactics of a 5 Year Old

This really isn’t quilting or sewing related unless you count the quilt in the picture or the dialog while sewing.

As I mentioned in the previous post, I spent the evening with 2 of my grandchildren sewing. Noah is chatty and asked me if I was coming to his sister’s birthday party next week. I told him yes I am coming. He continued to tell me what Grace wanted and the birthday plans and then informs me I need to make her something for her birthday. I told him I had, but it was a surprise.

Later he happened to notice this:


He told me Grace would really like it and I reminded him it was a surprise. He told me he would distract Grace so she wouldn’t see it. While he was busy “distracting” Grace I moved the quilt to another room.

When I returned he told me he was really good at distracting and he could help me again if I needed him to.

Enjoying the words of the little ones on the Journey, Jackie
