Another Finished Road Trip Case!

I finished Gavin’s Road Trip Case today!! I’m so proud of myself! This time I decided to try to machine stitch the binding down. It was my first time attempting this and while it will take some practice to make it perfect, I’m pretty happy with the results. I think this case needs to be sturdier and machine stitching the binding makes sense if these are for kids. Now I need to go and make myself one!

I’m so happy with how these came out and the second one definitely came together in half the time it took me to make the first. I definitely learned some new skills sewing these up and it makes me so happy that the boys love their new cases.

ย I read this article today on Facebookย “Mommy, Somebody Needs You”ย and I had to share it here too. This really hit me hard. There are some days I want to pull my hair out in frustration, days I can barely keep my eyes open I’m so exhausted, and days when taking a shower and brushing my teeth are last on my mind as two little voices are telling me they’re hungry yet again. These days, right now, are so hard and full of constant need yet they truly are the most beautiful. Just today I was going to the bathroom when Gavin ran into the doorway and said “Mommy, I love you” and ran away back to what he was doing. There will be a day I will miss that. A couple days ago we had a thunderstorm which is extremely rare in Southern Cali and Gavin got so scared he would not let me move my arm from his grip. The simple act of my arm being around him and my hand in his was enough to make him feel like he was safe. There are days when Caleb comes up to me and just throws his arms around me and hugs me and looks into my eyes and tells me he loves me and I feel like I am complete. These moments go by so fast and often get overlooked by the temper tantrums, fights, the constant need for something-anything, that even in these moments I should just remember that this is what I have always wanted. This beautiful chaos. Motherhood. Some day there will be all the time in the world for me, but right now, I am loving that somebody needs ME.
