Gimme Gimme More...Quilts

Gimme More Quilts, lyrics Every time the kiddo goes down
Right into the sewing room I run
It's full of quilting cotton
I cut it up and sew it back together again I'm sewing all night while there is no daylight

Gimme, Gimme, More
Gimme, Gimme more
Gimme, More
Gimme, Gimme, More
Gimme, Gimme more
Gimme, More
Gimme, Gimme, More
Gimme, Gimme more
Gimme, More

[HENCEFORTH LET IT BE KNOWN: For the purposes of this blog, I've decided to switch the moniker of my child from AAT/Above Average Toddler to "Babu," which was her nickname pre-birth.]

When Babu was a tiny, squiggly wiggly, pre-mobile infant and her first Halloween rolled around, her costume was obvious.

First of all, it was an homage to her super secret name. Second, it was basically a costume that would never work once she could walk so we had only one chance (unless she never learned to walk,…
