All About Me
Dawn - edging ever closer to 30, although I still feel like I'm 21. :) I'm married to a youth pastor ('Big G'), and have THREE wonderful kids: a five year-old son ('Little G'), a just turned two year-old daughter ('A'), and our newest little girl blessing, Baby R, was born May 28/07!! They keep me hopping as I juggle them, my WAH part-time job as an accountant, being a pastor's wife, and of course hobbies like quilting, scrapbooking, and blogging!

Am I going to be "THAT" mom?!?
Little G's school Christmas program is on Tuesday - he is acting as Joseph in the Junior Kindergarten class' skit of the nativity. The parents are responsible for bringing their kids in costume to the program.

I am sewing his costume.

This seemed to be a perfectly reasonable decision to me - he doesn't have a bathrobe, or anything similar that could be turned into a suitable costume. It would cost me probably $25 to buy a bathrobe just for this program that may never be used again. It cost me $13 for fabric and the pattern to sew him a simple tunic and sash. It seemed like simple economics to me.

But when I told my best friend that I was MAKING his costume (gasp) she seemed quite shocked and sort of mocked me for doing it. Now I'm all worried that the other parents are going to think I'm one of 'those' moms who does everything homemade, you know the type that makes individual personalized favors at kids' birthday parties, that kind of thing. :) And I am SO not that person, lol!

Really, I just thought I was saving a few dollars...

Congrats! you are an awesome mom, and it doesn't make you a "that" homemade making mom to be a good steward over your finances. besides, I've made a couple these very costumes for our church programs because it was less expensive all involved. post pics if you can.
Have fun making your son's costume and enjoying his acting debut.
