More wipes for his nose of course!
Mark has been pretty miserable the past few days with a bad cold. The past two days were particularly bad. We’ve been using cloth wipes at an alarming rate, particularly so because now he wants to wipe his own nose and so stacks of them get wasted. I’ve made over 150 wipes at this point (I’ve lost track) but clearly, that wasn’t enough any more. Yesterday, I made 63 more. (Don’t put any stock in that number. I just kept on cutting out wipes until I felt like it was a tall enough stack and it ended up being 63.)
midway through the cutting process. The near stack is the actual wipes. The crazy pile behind that is all my flannel scraps. I have so many, I can’t even use them up!
Ellie was in heaven, having so many scraps to cut up. She was making “salad” while Mark was, somehow, miraculously, occupying himself.
After lunch, Mark sat in my lap, I sewed wipes, and Ellie cut off the threads for me. Mark actually almost fell asleep on my lap while we were sewing so that ended the midday sewing session. Last night, I finished up the rest and left them for Ellie to trim. This morning, she came out, saw the stack, said, “WHAT?!?!?!” (as in, how did those all get sewed?) and then immediately sat down to trim threads. I DESPISE trimming threads (although I do it compulsively) so I’m thrilled that she thinks this is a fun job!
Today, thankfully, was a much better day for Mark and therefore, for all of us.
