All my Bug wanted for Christmas this year was a pink camera. If only every Christmas could be that simple. It’s what inspired my Christmas story for the Sun Gazette this past December. “A Christmas Bell”. Only that story was about my oldest daughter Bella, who at the same age as Bug only wanted a bell for Christmas.
Sigh… Makes me smile every time I think about how innocent and sincere three-year-olds are before the world begins to change them through maturity and outside forces.
So, needless to say, Bug got her pink camera.
What she didn’t get was a camera case. She’s been struggling to carry it around lately and sticking it in her backpack, so over the weekend I put together this little camera bag for her.
Of course, Boy saw it and said, “Mom can you make me a case for my Leapster. One that is big enough to carry all my games.”
I’ve gotten two of the three kids aprons finished I mentioned working on last week. I guess once I finish Bella’s apron I’ll have to make Boy a leapster case. No biggie. I’ve found that while sewing I come up with some of the best ideas for scenes in my stories.
