The highest praise coming from my kids is you're the best mom ever!Or like the time Clover and I sat down for lunch and I had 3 different kinds of chips, she declared "you are incredible! You are even a hero!" Had I known, I would have busted out all 5 kinds of chips.
The swimsuits were not received with as much enthusiasm by some. Pearl could not have complained more; too tight! it rubs here! don't like the straps! grrr! I can't move!
But clearly, judging from the pictures and her swimming lesson, she can. Move. I loved the straps on hers the best. Sigh.
Quite honestly, I am mostly pleased with them, but I can see something on every single one that I would change.
But I learned a lot, and made improvements on each one as I went along.
Which is what we do in life, right?
We do our best, learn, and then change to become better.By the way, can you believe I used sparkle? My mom and I saw that and knew it would be a huge hit. I loved taking a yard of 3 different kinds of fabrics and mixing, matching, and color blocking to create coordinating, but not identical swimsuits for the girls.
Olive adored her head wrap and quite possible called me amazing when I put it on her, minutes before we rushed out the door for lessons.
She's a little actress, that one.When I snuggled with her after the day she asked me to tell me about my day, and to include all the details. She loved the part when I said I was sewing her swimsuit 1/2 an hour before we left for lessons.
Then she asked if the past tense of rest was roast.
Off to make a swimsuit.
