Words of logic:

A conversation with Noah at 6 asking me if I taught my mother to sew once he found out I didn’t learn from her. When I told him she didn’t want to learn to sew his response was quite vocal with “Why wouldn’t she want to learn to sew?”

Yes, Noah, why wouldn’t she want to learn to sew, “First quilt and pillowcases”.

Words of appreciation:

Camden at 8 after I repaired his bear, “Grandma, how can I ever thank-you enough for fixing Benny and making the space quilt?

Words of envy:

Noah, after finding out why Grace, his sister, for her 5th birthday got to go shopping for fabric, “Why did she get to go shopping for her own fat quarters and I didn’t.”
