My Kinder boy is 5!

In the weeks leading up to school going back my little boy turned 5! It happens so quickly; the sleepless nights and kissable newborn cheeks, the introduction of solid foods, transition to cot and then bed and now it’s off to kinder. As he is one of the oldest in his class (being a January baby), he was well and truly ready for long kinder days.

The night before kinder began, he remembered that I said I would  make him a bag out of the tool fabric Janelle sent me… why do children seem to remember such plans when there is so little time left to fulfil them? At this time I was also not well and barely coping with life. But a promise is a promise, so a very simple bag was whipped up and finished in the minutes before we had to leave. A pocket on the front for his hat was a prerequisite.


Here he is with his kinder bag ready to go – couldn’t even stay still enough for the camera to focus!

We love you gorgeous boy!

Thanks Janelle for the fabric inspiration – one day the quilt to match might happen too.


Happy Stitching!
