that's what parenting is all about it, isn't it? sacrificing so our children can have more than we ever did. and yesterday i came up against a doozy. i make conscious decisions on what battles to pick and this time chose not to battle. that's right. collette is now a proud owner of a disney princess costume for halloween. she conspired with grandma and will now be snow white for halloween. i don't know why i can't stand the disney princesses so much, i grew up on them. actually i don't like hardly any so called "licensed character" stuff. and no, i still don't have an answer for it. but here we are, at a shining parenting moment that she probably will never remember anyway. ah well.
in other news have you seen that the queen of simple brilliance is at it again? i never knew how much i love lists until now. and that melissa has got me thinking about clothes sewing again. i'm thinking about elongating this built by wendy pattern into a simple smock that i can wear with tights all winter long. melissa did it, the chicken did it. surely i can too? maybe. i've got lots of sewing on deck and i tend to sew for myself last, so who knows.
