Keeping the 4-Year -Old Busy
Yes, I’m still trying to keep the 4-year-old happy and busy while the 5-year-old learns to read and write and a few other fun things. The baby, now 5 months old, is easily entertained. I thank the Lord for her sweet disposition and easy nature, which is much like her big sister. The difference is the age!
History of sorts
It started with a phone call from Purple Hearts. Whenever they call, my husband and I find five or six boxes or bags to donate. This has helped us clean out our basement. After rearing five children and having a set of our parents move in with us until they went home to Heaven, we look too much like hoarders. But being busy has not helped us clean up. Purple Hearts gives us a small goal each month. We’ve donated over 200 boxes now and things are almost beginning to look a little better. While churning out this month’s donation, I found a piece of fabric right out of 1975. Stretchy polyester. But perfect for a little girl to practice cutting and designing.
The Right Tool
It wouldn’t have worked if I hadn’t had Fiskars TM. They are safe for children, but sharp enough to cut fabric. That’s all I needed for her to do it.
