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...
