And she has stitched a few things before. One or two stitches at a time.
But this was her first Barbie dress. That is momentous, is it not? I remember sewing a lot of barbie clothes when I was little. And I couldn't figure out how to make pants so I would just make two legs with a long top! I know, right?
Chris and I were discussing how Chickie is my mini-me. She is super creative/artsy/craftsy, she is waaay too sensitive for her own good, a little on the messy side. And just to clarify (because let's face it it's a sensitive issue at our house) my house is very organized and clean. BUT I like to make a mess, it's fun. Actually, she is a lot different than me, too. She is obsessed with stuffed animals, and she is an avid dress wearer. She asked me once why I don't wear dresses more often. We went on to have a funny conversation about me wearing fancy ball gowns. Coincidentally, that night I was prancing around the house in a ballroom dress and she woke up. I went to check on her and she flipped out. She must have been thinking, "It feels like I'm awake, but I have to be dreaming if mom is so sparkly."
Today I'm thankful for a really fun time at jazz class, my new teacher is super fun!
