.Conversations with a sewer's son.

Date:  Tuesday 7th June 2011
Time:  6pm
Details:  After a shower, Oscar (5 years old) usually wears board shorts to bed, 6 degrees celsius outside

MUM:  Oscar, I think you should wear a pair of pyjama pants tonight.  It's super freezing.  Way too cold for shorts.
OSCAR:  I'll think about it.
MUM:  Just wear pants, you'll be toasty and warm.
OSCAR:  Okay then.
(Mum gets Oscar a pair of Slumber Party Jammies)
OSCAR:  Not Make It Perfect, Mum!
MUM:  Why not?  What's wrong with Make It Perfect?
OSCAR:  I don't really like your fabric choice.  I'll wear shorts.
The dreaded day my children start to tell me they don't like my sewing.

We have reached that point too. On Saturday we were driving by Old Navy and my daughter said that she wanted to go inside. I told her that I would make her something and she whined that she didn't want something that I made, she wanted something from the store. :(. What can you do!

LOL..... I was only saying to my mother in law yesterday about the little time frame you have to actually sew clothes for your kids.

Love it. I have a 12 yr old that liked the pj pants i've made him. Maybe let Oscar select his own fabrics.

Aw!!! I know what you mean. My oldest son (11) wanted a new teddy because he's decided to start collecting softies. I asked him if he would like me to make him one. He said, "No thanks Mum, the ones you make don't look quite right." :S
