Every now and then, I'll be sharing little pearls of wisdom - sometimes funny things, often things resulting from my forgetfullness, bad judgement, laziness, absentmindedness, etc. My goal is to help you avoid the same mistakes. And/or to make you smile.
Here's the first installment. Read, learn and enjoy.
- ask your daughter to pick out her favorite fabric from your sewing room stash ("Oh no reason, Sweetheart. Just curious.")
- wait until she’s at school to start making her a birthday gift
- smugly hide the evidence before she comes home, but then
- forget to dispose of the scraps in the garbage can
Because when said short person notices the remnants you WILL be asked: "Mommy, what are you making with my fabric?"
Parenthood requires you to be good at a lot of things - like thinking on your feet, remaining calm under pressure ... and lying.
