Today was a doodley sort of day. Aeryn asked for a mummy with a baby in a sling. I think I managed it, she was pleased. She made sure I made the baby happy.

She’s pretty obsessed with the idea of slings, but can I get her to go in one?! We’ve borrowed a mei tai from a friend now to attempt more back carries without a tonne of fabric in my bag every day, but she won’t even try. She’s so stubborn with it! 

Annoyingly, every time she does go up, she loves it. And if I let her go on my front, she’d be up 24/7! But sadly it’s just too painful for her to sit on my bump for more than 5 minute maximum now. 

She was an excellent “helper” while I was sewing today, too. Though, using an overlocker (serger) with a toddler on your lap is, well, pretty much as difficult as it sounds!

She blogs about issues and ideas surrounding education, parenting, feminism, craft and various other interesting tidbits. What a wonderful word, tidbits.
