At the hospital where I work Nurse CG has 2 little children, little girl who I will call Gigi and little boy who will be called Baby Will.
She was explaining her dilema to me. She live a few doors down from her mom. On the day when she comes to work Her mother is off and she take the children. Every morning she has to take them to her mother Gigi gives her a hard time when it time to put on her coat. She has to Fight with her. I do not know what it is like to fight with a 2 year old but the look on her face and the tone of her voice tells she is at her wits end.
Her little girls is so cute in her pictures and Nurse CG is so descriptive of the morning encounters that I can almost visualize it.
Nurse CG has just finish putting baby will in car seat and turns to see gigi laying half on the couch sleeping.
" Gigi put on your coat!"
" NO COAT NO COAT NO COAT"
" You want to see grand right?"
" You need your coat to go see grand ma"
"NO COAT NO COAT NO COAT" with each resistant cry she stomps her foot. She has her boots on. She loves her boots! Nurse CG rolles her eyes as she looks to the sky and thinks out loud " I don't have time for this" she goes grabs her coat and gigi coat and fights with gigi until she wins and out the door they go with gigi crying and baby will joining the crying protest.
She arrives at her mothers house with 2 crying children and gigi half way out of her coat. Her solution is a fleece poncho with a hood. She asked me to make one. She bought the material and a sample poncho of what she wanted for both children and I set out to make them.
So when Gigi came into clinic for appoint I took some measurements. So I am working on Poncho style number 2 which will allow for more movement. However right now when nurse CG says Gigi get your coat on she runs gets the poncho and puts it on with no problem. The new problems is getting her to take it off once she gets to grandma house. It will be 2 hours later and she still has it on. Oh Well.
Time to get started on the next sewing project....
