The ambitions of a Preppie



I was on school pick up duty yesterday. I only live about 500m from school, but it takes me about 15 minutes to walk there and another 15 minutes to walk back.

So I picked up Moo from his classroom, and for the entire 15 minute walk home he told me everything that he would like me to make for him. He didn't even stop and draw breath. He truly believes that I can make anything and everything. It's so darn sweet!

We had about an hour before he had to go home. He desperately wanted me to make him a Dinosaur Pillow Pet. I desperately wanted to play Jenga.


We compromised and decided to draw a sketch of a dinosaur that we could make into a mini softie.


We used Crayola fabric markers on calico. Super simple and extremely quick!


I think he loves him.

If a preppie believes you can make and do anything and everything then it surely must be true! Gorgeous dinosaur!

Gorgeous, both boy and toy. Wish I'd had an aunt(?) like you. Though the ones I had were lovely, just not crafty. :)

You did a great job together. I hope you made a deal to play Jenga next time.

You really are a yummy mummy and I thought it was an urban myth! How that little boy must adore you when you constantly fulfil his belief that you can make anything!

You clever Aunty...you are not helping bust the myth though of being able to do anything !
