Irregardlessly


  1. It’s looking like a dress! Only sleeves, bottom hem, and some futzing with the stupid collar to go.

  2. I remember when I was about 9 my mother told me she’d make the skirt I needed for choir - whatever kind I wanted. She looked at me like I was the devil when I told her I wanted it to be super-pleated. I understand now.

  3. So. Much. Pink.

    The girls are spoiled. Lovingly spoiled. People are so incredibly generous, all the time.

    But I wish if they were going to buy them something, someone would get them some trucks. Or if they had to buy them a baby, then a baby that wasn’t a girl. 

    And I feel ungrateful for thinking that. But when someone says, “oh isn’t it amazing that girls just naturally love sparkly shoes and purses,” my first thought is that they love them because that’s what they have around. 

    So we are on a mission to lessen the pink in the playroom this weekend. I don’t want to get rid of it - if they like pink toys, then by all means, play with them. But we need some balance. I need some balance. And I like playing with trains and trucks.

  4. That terrifying moment before you make the first cut.

  6. I am going to finish (start) this dress this week if it kills me. Today: press & cut fabric, and rethread serger (yikes) so I can cheat on my seams. #washidress
