I wanted to show you some cute aprony goodness, but my daughter informed me this evening that she did not want me to make a gift for her friend's birthday. She wants to buy her something "like the other kids". Okay then. I managed to hold back the tears until she was snug in her bed and fast asleep.
I understand, I really do.
When I was in Kindergarten and first grade, my mom made almost all my clothes. I hated them all. I just wanted to be like the other girls. I didn't want to wear dresses that flew up over my head when I was flying through the air on the swings. I loathed the polyester pants with the elastic waist and the billowy blouses. All I wanted was jeans and tennis shoes. I bet she felt like I feel now.
I'm not giving up though. Little Scarlet likes picking fabrics and patterns for dresses and skirts, so clothes aren't really a problem. Yet. I just need to come up with better gifts. Apparently aprons are not on the Kindergarten hot list this year. Any ideas?
