I know I can.... I know I can...

When I'm not quilting I spend my time being a mom, well I guess I do that while I'm quilting too. 
This is my daughter, I love her to pieces but sometimes she frustrates me to pieces. :) Anyways she is finally big enough to ride her tricycle. She tells us all the time it's her bike "without" training wheels. In our neighborhood we have a lot of little hills and she loves to ride her tricycle on them. The other day she was riding around and having a hard time getting up one of the bigger hills. As she was pushing I overheard her quietly saying something. I listened hard and realized she was saying "I know I can..... I know I can" she repeated this a few times and then I asked her where she learned that. She told me, I'm a little engine. 
So, the books we read her she actually does listen to.

Okay, back to quilting. :)
Have a happy day!
