Because apparently is humanly possible to have your ears talked off.

Or it sure feels that way to me when my 3-year-old and I are spending the day together at home. I love the girl, but most of our conversations go like this:

C: Mom, what’s this?
Me: Medicine for Tyson’s ear.
C: Why his ear need medicine?
Me: Because it has owies.
C: Why it got owies?
Me: Because it’s infected.
C: What infected?
Me: It means his ear has bad germs in it that make it hurt.
C: His ear have germs?
Me: Yup.
C: Why his ear have germs?
Me: I don’t know, it just happens.
C: It just happens?
Me: Yes, just happens.
C: Why it just happens?
Me: *facepalm*

Don’t get me wrong. I love the girl. I just can’t handle the fifty million questions that flow from her every minute she’s anywhere near me. Today in the midst of the “whys” and the “how comes” I decided to go to my list of ideas I’ve pinned to keep her occupied during the day. One of those was button practice using felt. I recently redid my craft room (still a work in progress, but photos will be coming soon) so I could actually find everything I needed to do this little project:

Just a big piece of felt, some little pieces of different colored felt cut into shapes with a slit for the buttons, needle & thread, and some buttons to match the colors of the shapes. Only took about 15 minutes to put together. 

Here’s Little Boo, quite proud of herself for unbuttoning and rebuttoning all the shapes!

And here’s me, getting a chance to actually do a blog post because she’s happily working away on those buttons. Ahh, peace.

Have you ever done some emergency crafting to occupy little hands for awhile?
