Probably some time in 2011 or so I got it in my head that it would be fun to make Brett a quiet book for the Hebrew Alphabet and started working out the ideas for it. Around 2014 or so I actually started buying materials for it but didn’t make much progress on the actual sewing of it.

We went to the Children’s Museum Tucson for the first time on December 18, 2015. We tried it out on a Saturday when Brett could come with me and all three kids so we could see if it was something we would want a membership to and something I could do regularly with the kids on my own.

One of the hardest parts of motherhood for me is lasts. You rarely get to plan them. They sneak up on you. Sometimes they pass without you noticing till it’s too late. … But I can tell the LAST is coming. And as much as I want to sleep through the night again, I’m definitely going to miss those sacred moments. And I won’t even know to enjoy that LAST until it’s already gone. Keep reading
