    Considering how busy Ellie is and how fast the clothes get damaged and the time it takes to hand repair each one it just seems that way to fast growing children.

    Lynn’s Notes:
    In the log home we owned from 1983 until 2003 our laundry was upstairs and out of the way. It was therefore easily ignored until we needed clean clothes. Next to the laundry appliances I had a sewing table, which would eventually become so heaped with mending that the sewing machine disappeared. When I finally grit my teeth and settled into the task of fixing all the defective duds, I would inevitably discover items of kids’ clothing that had been there so long, my kids had outgrown them! By putting this scenario into the strip, I absolved myself of guilt and hoped that other busy moms would also forgive themselves and do what I did: pass the stuff on to someone else! I did, however, repair it beforehand!

    Being the thrifty sort, I always mended right away to get use out of items I had paid good money for. Thrifty, being the polite word for it.

    Seems like the perfect chance for the kids to learn how to sew!
