I have just overheard a conversation between my 13 y.o. son and Miss Lily.
(hence this impromptu post as we are about to walk out the door and go to the final Primary School Assembly for my other son)
He simply asked her what is Santa going to bring her for Christmas?
The reply was so fast that it just took my breath away.
"A new baby and a Sewing machine"
.... a what? yes a Sewing machine
So now I ponder this question,
How old is old enough for a child to get a Sewing machine?
When pondering this question we must remember she is the youngest of 4 children, is quite often seen sitting on my sewing chair pretending to sew ... and this is not the first time she has mentioned a sewing machine, but is the first time it has come from her with such force and determination!
I would love to hear your views/experience.
