It wouldn't be almost Christmas without last minute hand-mades. This will be a little sit-spot for Charlie. I have a green one just inside the deck door in my bedroom and he delights in standing on it and turning in circles like a dog in tall grass.
We were having big fun yesterday, but inside an hour, his annoying cold/teething symptoms took a turn for the worse. I had forgotten how wrenching it is when a baby fevers and there is little you can do beyond hold them.
I remember wishing I could be sick instead for both of mine. Would that we could have such a choice.
