Divagirl had some money left over from Christmas and we were at the mall between locations so we said she could spend it. She discovered the Disney store. Her heart was set on a Snow White dress but not only were they overpriced, they were already beginning to fall apart. I told her I would make her one instead so she used her money for Snow White’s shoes (which mommy cannot make) as well as a chocolate milk and a cookie at Starbucks. That meant another trip to JoAnn Fabrics. She helped pick out all the fabrics and matched the thread colors so it was a learning experience as well.
I finished her dress in a couple of nights which was a good diversion to keep my mind off the impending, I mean upcoming competition. She was delighted with the finished product and spent the rest of her day in it.
