I Should Have Gone To Bed Hours Ago

But I made this instead.

Claire is fascinated by buttons. If she’s crying and you show her buttons, she immediately stops and begins examining them. I have a collection of buttons (some inherited from my Mom), so I sorted through for interesting ones. Then I cadged an old shirt from Husband and constructed a pillow cover out of it, sewed them on, and covered an ugly pillow (purchased on clearance for $1.50 at Linens-n-Things). Voila! A new toy (to be used with supervision) for almost no money. You can see greater detail here.

    Ah yes. The first treasures! Buttons, except when swallowed, are an essential pre-literacy tool (the pincer, the pincer).

    That’s a great pillow! What a selection of buttons. I always loved buttons, too, and enjoyed hunting through my aunt’s button-jar whenever I got a chance – one of the perks of having dressmakers in the family!
