mermaidsews In other news how did these babies get so old. Amora is doing great at potty training - led by her interest, and Damien now cooks breakfast! This morning he told Amora not to wake us up so he could have special time with her and took her downstairs and got them both yogurt and cereal. 15h
  •   amybythebay Send Damien my way! And Amora too... maybe she can stir up some potty training interest for Aiden. He's not interested at all. 😐 11h
  •   mermaidsews @ylmommyx4 I really think he will, he's so loving and empathetic. He blows me away. Tonight he made me a picture because my back hurts of a rainbow, pink hearts with black polka dots and the phrase I love you! Guess he knows me! I feel so blessed. 11h
  •   mermaidsews @amybythebay Amora's pre-school has been so wonderful, I guess she wants to be like the bigger kids and they are encouraging it even though it means lots of changes. and Damien loves to be helpful, I'm soaking it up because I'm sure it won't last 11h
  •   mermaidsews @stitchmischief @thefooshe @peppiflo @bettycrockerass @ruthb.quiltin @tennjenny thanks - watching the two of them love and help each other is seriously the most amazing parenting reward. 11h
  •   mermaidsews @raquelsews no, Damien loves to be super awesome big brother right now. It's somewhat new, and such a nice change from the constant elbowing shall we say. 11h
  •   mermaidsews @raquelsews I'm not sure how long he'll think all this is cool though, but soaking it in now. 10h
  •   amybythebay That's awesome! We talk about potty training so much, but he's totally happy in diapers. I'm trying to be patient, but the preschools here require him to be fully potty trained to attend the 3 year old class in the Fall. So I can't be patient forever! 9h
  •   ylmommyx4 @mermaidsews what a sweet little guy you have the privilege to call "son"! 2h

mermaidsews My weekend was HELL - two very sick kids, one long trip to urgent care, one trip to a specialist, one hubby STILL in Nicaragua, one I-phone in the washing machine, and more! BUT TODAY, everyone is healthy, my I-phone was revived by the phone Doctor, AND I booked a much needed girls trip staying in this fabulous loft. 🍾🛍. I needed that. 1w

mermaidsews That feeling when you see your daycare center name on your ringing phone, those few seconds before you know what happened is terrifying. Sent home with a tummy bug. 2w

mermaidsews Hey friends, just wanted to let you know that I'm doing another round of pre-orders at my shop @amoralovelythreads - today's the last day to pre-order!

To any of those inclined to help spread the word, I'd be ever so grateful! IG filters messages now, which drastically reduces post reach. Thanks

  •   sewtakeahike Really? So our posts don't reach all of our followers any longer? 3w
  •   mermaidsews @sewtakeahike that's my understanding based on some Facebook groups I'm in. 3w
  •   cyarnell Is that why when I hashtag stuff it doesn't show up in the stream? 3w
  •   weshallsew What a nuisance! I was really hoping IG would maintain its own autonomy and not succumb to the laws of the FB rulers. 3w
