What to do?

"Hmmm, now that the big giveaway is over what am I going to do with my time?"

"I guess I could make another purse?? or, maybe an earth friendly craft."

"Maybe I should clean the house,
do the laundry,
cook a meal for my family,
or work on the website....."

"Nah. I'll make a strait-jacket"

"It'll come in handy when the 5th grader acts up. Maybe I ought to make one for each of the kids to wear to church.....or on road trips! Then we wouldn't hear "He's touching me Mom..tell him to stop touching me!"

"I can't believe I never thought of this before!!"

Have you ever made a strait-jacket? There aren't any patterns on the net, you just have to wing it!

Smith is going to be "Harry Houdini" for the schools wax museum this week. I didn't really make this to punish my kids......but it does give me ideas!!

Oh the possibilities of this...I can see my two teenage boys each in one of these! Now I need to find a solution to keep those deep voices quiet. The duct tape maybe? Love your humour!

I want one or 2 or 7.. LOL

Ok this truly could be fun just imagine the stares you would get if you took one of the kids out in public in it..

Hi Lola I have three little mosters that this could work rather well on. you could make a pattern you'd make a millon.

Now THAT would be an excellent giveaway!!! I'd LOVE one! Of course, getting past the child protective people could prove challenging. Back to the duct tape!

Maybe this is how Harry Houdini got to be so great....his mother kept him locked up in straight jackets as a child.

Did he face the wall willingly?!
Look at this lady's blog:
She met Amy Butler in Australia!
I think she's wearing the same shirt as in your photos!!

OMG! I love the idea of a straight jacket for the kids on road trips too! GMTA! What cute kid you have! Tolerant too what with letting you photograph him for your blog!
I love your sense of humor!
