Brown Sugar





Lately Talmage almost always responds with "Chocolate," "Sauce," or "Brown sugar" when I ask him what he wants to eat. Sauce=dressing, ketchup, BBQ sauce, etc. and he likes to eat it plain. This morning he was throwing a fit because I wouldn't let him have brown sugar for breakfast (imagine that!) and he didn't want it mixed with his oatmeal. Before I took the video he asked if he could hold the container the brown sugar is in so he could eat straight out of it. Oh, the trauma that exists in our house over food! :) Enjoy!

  3. What a mean mom. I can't believe you won't let him have brown sugar for breakfast. :)

  4. My mom would let me have the lumps that wouldn't blend into the cookie dough . . . melts in your mouth! So it's inherited . . . ?

  5. I debated long and hard about whether to post this comment on Breanne's blog or yours, since it was inspired by her post of pictures from your house. But, since it's really for you, I decided it would be weird to write it on hers.

    LOVE the quilts on Talmage's bunk bed! Did you hand quilt those? Or do you know someone who has a machine who can do it - or did you do it on yours? So cute! Also, how did you get the bed skirt around the bottom bunk like that? Peter's bunk bed has a ladder that gets in the way, so I can't have his quilt hanging down and I haven't figured out how to do the skirt. Please share your secrets of awesomeness. Thanks!

  6. Jocilyn-Thanks! I'm still working on the one for the bottom bunk. The actual quilting part was a lot easier than I anticipated, although I imagine the second one is going to be a lot smoother than the first. The first doesn't look too bad from the top, but you can see a lot of mistakes on the bottom. :)

    For my birthday I got what's called a free motion sewing machine foot. It was only about $10 and it works by having the feed dogs lowered and then having a foot that lifts up every time the needle does so you can move the fabric whichever way you want to while you sew. You can probably check your sewing machine manual to see if your machine has quilting stitches and if so, what foot is needed to do them on your machine. If you decide to do something like it or want to know more, you are more than welcome to give me a call and I can tell you more about it and tell you some things that would be seriously helpful to know before you start so you don't end up with weird spots like I have.

    The ladder on our bunk bed gets in the way too, but ours doesn't have bunk boards. There are like 25 slats of wood that are screwed to the bed frame to support the mattress. So I just sewed together a bunch of strips of fabric, hemmed them on top and bottom, and then sewed lengths of ribbon on periodically that I could tie to the slats. If yours has a bunk board you could do a similar concept but tie ribbons to each other across the bunk board or something. Again, you're welcome to call for more information on that.

    Thanks again for the compliment! His room is slowly but surely getting decorated. I was hoping to have it mostly done by the time the baby is born, but I think it's going to take me a bit longer than that...

  7. So cute. He says brown sugar so well. Come on and be a cool mom and let him have his brown sugar for breakfast. LOL!

  8. We have the slats too, so that is a genius idea! You're such a smarty-pants. :) And I didn't really even start Peter's room until after Emily was born, so your ahead there.
