You know, it just dawned on me. Children have childish behavior because, well, they are children. And what do children do?
they don't take things very seriously
they do things impulsively
they ask for your help
they don't worry about bills or clean laundry
they dance when they want to dance
they wear what they want
they give spontaneous hugs
on and on and on and on
so....why do adults seem to expect adult things out of small children? I have to catch myself, because I see myself falling into that sometimes. And you know, without gentle reminders and practice, of course children will go on being children.
and then again, lots of us adults have childish behavior, too, don't we?

I decided to make a stuffed animal for a friend's little boy, and that is how this little turtle was born. The pattern I used was from JonBoy Crochets!. The pattern is called Fred the Turtle.
I used double worsted Peaches' n Cream cotton yarn with a K hook (it is very thick yarn, 8 strands thick).
