So fast forward through 6 months of 'occasional' reminders and him asking "when are you going to make my pillow?" and my responses of "sometime", which really mean "probably never~~ and I hope you'll forget soon!" And we reach the day of enlightenment~~he wants a small pillow, like the one hanging on a keychain that I made for oldest last summer!
Relief and such joy! I can quit being a bad mom and make this thing that youngest wants without having to commit myself to the nearest psychiatric ward! So hand in hand we go to my favorite quilt shop for backing fabric. And we find a really cute TRACTOR fabric that youngest likes, LOL!
Next day I begin stitching the tractor pillow......and youngest sits on the floor in front of me watching. I put the stitching down and get up to get a drink and he asks, "are you done?" I resume the stitching and the little hawk is now peering over my shoulder and breathing down my neck. I get up to go to the bathroom and he exclaims, "you're getting up again???" Sheesh, all he needs is a whip! Finally, I've got that monkey off my back and he's happy and he said he was going to take really good care of it (without my prompting, LOL!)
Middle wants one with a racecar......
