Mommy, Have you ever heard of a Cheese Bag?

Yesterday afternoon J and I had this conversation

"Guess what? I just got some fabric from Grandma, so tomorrow we can make some Bean Bags!"
"Mommy, have you ever heard of a Rice Bag?"
"Yes, we have a few of those."
"Yep, but they are way up high" (I keep them in the cupboard above the microwave, because we use them as heating pads)
After a pause....
"Mommy, Have you ever heard of a SUGAR BAG?!?!?!?!?"
"No. I don't think that's a real thing" (In my mind I'm picturing J sucking on the corner of a fabric bag filled with sugar. I'm pretty sure that's what he was picturing too.)

Fast forward to this morning.
"Okay J, lets all get dressed and then we will go make our Bean Bags!" (yes, it really is that exciting)
"Mommy, have you ever heard of a CHEESE BAG?!?!?!?!?!"
" Yeah. No those don't exist"

That's my boy. He usually makes life very fun. Sometimes he gets so frustrated with me that I have to put myself into time out- that happened today too.

I decided that I did want to make bean bags BUT it's beautiful outside today. And so I multitask-ed. I took the boys little table out to our front porch, it was the perfect height for sewing while I sat on the front steps and there is a perfectly placed electrical outlet out there too. So we spent an hour or more outside while I sewed, filled and finished sewing 15 bean bags. Now we are play bean bag games!
