Like most preschoolers, my daughter loves dress-up. In fact, she wears her dress-up clothes more often than her regular clothes. We even have a rule: At home, you can pick your clothes, when we go out, Mommy picks the clothes.
As I stood in my sewing room, taking inventory of my fabrics, I realized I had nothing even remotely close to the right fabric. Then some of my brightly colored knits caught my eye, and I had an idea. She lives in these clothes, right? I mean, she wears them everyday and often sleeps in them too. So why not make them comfy?
Of course, as soon as I was done, she pulled it on and hasn’t taken it off since. Her first response? “Thanks Mommy. Can I have a Sleeping Beauty dress now?”
You can always count on a 3 year old to keep you humble.
