Both Super-E and I-guy spent private sessions alone with me in my craft room making little stuffed gifts for each other. I-guy, the little one, wanted to make an owl for his brother, since there has been a big interest in Guardians of Ga’hoole. I-guy spent the whole time with me, very interested in the process, helping with all the embroidery stitching, felt and button choices. He did ALL the stitching on the eyes, beak, and chest and was so, so proud!
Then, Super-E wanted to make his brother Picachu, which happens to be I-guy’s favorite color– yellow. So, that is what we made. Super-E couldn’t wait to escape the craft room. He did the directing and choosing of things and dashed away as fast as he could. It’s alright though. I couldn’t torture the poor kid and his heart was still very much in the right place.
When they gave eachother their gifts, there was so much excitement and love shared. They both adore their gifts and keep them close at bedtime.
These two, I can honestly say, are best of friends. They definitely have their moments, of course, but Super-E is extremely patient and nurturing and the little guy can’t WAIT for his big brother to get home from school everyday. What more could a mom ask for.
