We were driving to our
hellhole sucky greasy Favorite family restaurant last night while discussing the birth of a new family member (more on that below). Soleil sudden said "I have a question!" We wait.
"Who birthed the first person if the first person was first?"
Ah- wise question, grasshopper! I discussed the biblical creation theory. Jay mentioned evolution and Soleil said, "no, people are birthed"
So Jay put it this way…."which came first,Soleil, the chicken or the egg?"
Soleil: "The chicken! She laid the egg!"
Jay "Ah, but did that chicken come from an egg?"
Jay"So who laid that egg?"
Soleil: "A chicken!"
(ad nauseum for 5 minutes)
Jay "You see, it is all a circle…the circle of life "(<sarcasm>THANKS Disney</sarcasm>).
But it was a very perceptive question for her to ask….
Freebie was born yesterday. Our cousins did uncountable rounds of IVF for each of their boys. Then about 8.5 months ago, Freebie started. My cousin put it this way, it was the buy 2 IVFs, get one kid free deal. An immaculate conception, shall we say… So, after years of frustration and trying, they now have three children, each 2 years apart. Welcome to the world, Freebie.
Last night, I popped over to J0Ann Fabrics to pick up a rotary cutting guide. Who knew that you could buy these clear plastic guides to help you CUT THE FABRIC STRAIGHT when using a mat and rotary cutter? Apparently not me. However, I was able to cut two rectangles of cloth (one is technically a square, but then I would have to type one square and one rectangle, oh hell, I just typed it anyway) and I overcast them with the Kitty machine before calling it a night. I was able to set up the machine, thread it, get the bobbin in and sew pretty much without looking at the manual! The one thing I learned? You cannot sew while watching an overtime shootout in hockey. You MUST stop the machine and watch the shoot out and THEN start again. Trust me on this….OK?
