Is there a Doctor in the House?

Twas the Night before Christmas Eve and all through the house not a creature was stirring except Mickey Mouse. I am talking about C1's Magical Mickey Mouse with the Fantasia gear on. A while ago Mickey's head was ripped open in the back and he was in desperate need of some fixing. Now T and I try to teach the kids that they have to respect all of their things and you can't always go buy a new one if you destroy it. But recently after doing the De-Cluter on an old paid bills box I found a little pouch of needle and thread. So tonight at bed time C1 asked me if I could fix Mickey? I can now, since I found the sewing pouch. Yes, I know how to sew. My PopPop taught me a long long time ago how to sew and it is like riding a bike, except sticking your fingers with a needle part. I got the Mickey and some white thread and a needle and went to town. So before I actually started the procedure on  his head,  I had to prep the area. I had to wash my hands and get the surgical area ready. I had to make sure everything was right for the operation. Clean area and plenty of light and a steady hand. It was a very long procedure about 10 minutes and I am very proud to say that Mickey did not lose any stuffing tonight and is expected to make a full recovery, in fact he is already back to his sleeping spot right next to C1. So this week that makes me 2 for 2 on surgically repairing 2 things that serve a huge purpose. Item 1- C1's Magical Mickey Mouse and Item 2- My green khaki pant button that had popped off (making me realize I need to run more). Minnie and Daisy had asked me to do a little nip/tuck and lift but I am not that kind of doctor, I only work on those things that lift my childrens spirits and that was done tonight. C1 was happy to see that Mickeys head was not split open anymore and he grabbed him and hugged him and I left the room with a huge smile.

How awesome is that. He looks so sweet sleeping. I know with mine, looks can be deceiving. :)

Amazing the things you learn to do for the little ones, right? I actually altered her Cinderella gown for Halloween and it turned out decent! Better than $30. She still wears it almost every day.

Merry Christmas pal.
