O, nothing. I was just busy making a pillowcase.


Love my little guy.

Little guy loves preschool.

Gotta love preschool.  (actually, it’s awesome)

Gotta love the preschool crafts.

I would say ‘you know what i’m talkin’ ’bout.’ but you don’t unless your kids go to Great Beginnings.  Those ladies are da bomb.

For Mother’s Day, I got this pin:

Happy Mother's Day to me!
it's a sumflower (#notatypo)

My 3 1/2 year old son, well, he made it for me.  (beams with motherly pride) (which is not a sin, btw…) (no really, he’s awesome) (can’t you see?)

Enough with the parentheticals, moron.

Right now they’re doing a craft involving white pillowcases.  Filled with sticks of frozen butter.

No, wait.  That’s me.

When I say ‘right now they’re doing a craft’, interpret loosely, as in “the rest of the class did, but Mommy didn’t check both email accounts so she didn’t know she needed to send a pillowcase to school with me and now has no time to procure one before tomorrow”.

I wrack my brain for fun some days.  Everything needs a good wracking from time to time.  Today’s wracking had purpose.  Do I have a white pillowcase?  If no, how can I get a white pillowcase?  I have no white pillowcase.  I suck as a cool mom.  Back to the white pillowcase.  Can I make the white pillowcase?  With what could I make this white pillowcase?  O, white pillowcase, how thou dost cause me to tap into my creative nature!  O, creative nature, how thou dost save me money and humiliation!

Unless of course, the pillowcase is to be a particular make and model and thread-count.

Otherwise, young grasshopper, I rule.  I am the bomb-diggity.  The boom-dynamite.  And all that jazz.

tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, tick, boom! dynamite
thread-count: n/a

Took about 30 minutes, what with all the straight lines and such.

And I ❤ my serger.  Thanks, Mom & Pop!

What?  It's mostly white.
What? It's mostly white.

The piece of white material I managed to dig up was a few inches too short, but pillowcases are known for having a wide band at the top, and as far as I’m aware, there’s no law that stipulates that white pillowcases can’t have a 6″ bright blue band at the end.

Maybe it’ll get Levi kicked out of preschool.  Parenting fail.  I’m sure it won’t be the last on my account…

But at least it’ll match his other bedding.  Since I rule, and all.

And coördination is close to godliness.

So are finished seams.

Check out the workmanship on that baby!
(the inside)

And I go mad for top-stitching, dah-ling!

because most things aren't complete without it, yo
top-stitched, as promised

All so my son can deface the finished product in the adorable, artistic manner which only a toddler son with my genetics could possibly achieve.

You go, kid!



I rock. I also paper and scissors.

  1. Dearest “Bomb-diggity”, “Boom-dynamite” Mommy (and I had to look back up at the top to see how “diggity” was spelled),
    Since when does anyone get kicked out of preschool for being creative? We love color! We love originality! Preschool is where artists are born!

    Much love,
    Missy Donnie


    1. Don’t worry. I know you don’t punish creativity. I was kidding.

      And thank you all bunches for being so wonderful to Levi. He will miss you this summer.


  2. Phebe, when I ‘hovered my cursor’ over one of the pictures, it said,”Tick tick tick boom dynamite.” Is this particular comment a reference to a certain cheer we all know from the Northside Christian School days?


Come on. Let it out. You know you want to.
