February 6th, 2013Truly a girl
What used to be an easy task of choosing what clothes Caity would wear the next day for school has now became a challenge. I used to lay all her clothing for the day on our bed for her to easily put on while she brushes her teeth. When she’s done, she goes to the bedroom to change and in a flash she’d come out all ready for school. Lately though that has all changed. She would tell me, “I want to wear dress mami! or “I want a skirt!” It is doomsday when all her skirts are in the laundry, waiting for wash day.
We’re halfway into winter and yes, the girl wears skirts/dresses to school even in these cold days! Its especially tricky to make her clothing work for winter season! It makes me wish they have school uniform, so I don’t have to battle with her everyday. Her staple wear these days? Tights/leggings, skirts/dresses, shirt and add all the winter stuff to keep her warm sums to a heapful of laundry in two days!
Fortunately, with my basic sewing skill (bah!!!), I am able to make her few girly wear she can use. See the pic below? It used to be her summer dress when she was 3 y/o (which I really love for its flower prints), until I turned it into a skirt.
