Bad bad mom!!
This here “skirt” pretty much proves that I am the worst mom in the world. Mike bought me a sewing machine several months ago. From the start, Daisy begged for a princess dress. I told her that might be beyond me but assured her we could make a princess skirt just as soon as we got some material. Then, just to try the new machine out, I sewed the rough shape of a “skirt” on the only material we had in the house. It wasn’t really meant to be the “princess skirt” or even a skirt at all really – I mean look at it. No hem, no elastic waist, no glitter, nothin’. Sadly, after several months of me saying we’d make her skirt “soon,” she gave up. That alone wouldn’t have made me feel so bad, but she’s done it with such cheerful resignation. She somehow manages to actually keep this “skirt” on for hours. She tells everyone that it is her princess skirt and someday we may even sew some cute things on it. She happily claims that she’s all set to be a princess for Halloween now (though she did decide to at least make her own very sad little paper excuse for a crown). Seriously, what kind of a mother am I!!?! Someone, make that poor girl a pretty skirt!
