    I don't have kids home anymore and I'm retired but it is still hard to find time to quilt I spend more time on the road for the grandkids activies then I did for their parents. I give my daughter a lot of credit I don't know how she handles having 6 kids ranging from 13 to 1. As for the hugs and snuggles I get plenty everyday from the grandkids. I'm lucky enought to have them close by so I can get all the hugs and kisses anytime I want.

    Amen to that, Patrice. I would gladly trade quilting for more time with my kids... to wind the clock back to when they were little enough to sit in my lap and read or do crafts.

    If I could have one more little one now that I am older and wiser wouldn't that be wonderful! I have to wait for grandchildren instead, I guess. (Boy will they be spoiled!)

    Being a stay at home mom is the most important and rewarding job there could be.

    Enjoy every single moment while it lasts! They'll stay close when they are older because of it.

    A stay at home mom has the hardest and most important job ever. I was a stay at home mom for 10 years. I waited to start working until the youngest was in first grade and then went to work in the school cafeteria to be off with them. Stay at home and get all the hugs and kisses you can. Poo-Poo on those who think stay at home moms have no value.

    Another use for those used dryer sheets.

    I stick those dryer sheets back into the dryer until there is no smell left.This indicates there is no oil left in them. Then, I iron out the sheets and use as the base for crazy or string quilts. This saves the price of muslin.

    Uh, I have actually used the gun at the Walmart in our area. No one was around and this lady needed some fabric in a hurry. I know it was wrong, but what the heck- the lady was happy and out of there in a flash. I, on the other hand, kept piling bolts on the counter until the 'real' clerk showed up. It was really Walmart's fault as they shouldn't leave temptation out.

    According to a good friend (Leslee), itís when they go to fingerprint you at the DMV and you find you no longer have a readable fingerprint on your left forefinger. :lol:

    "I have actually used the gun at the Walmart in our area."

    HA! You have no idea how funny that sounded when I first read it. I've actually been tempted myself... :wink:
