Tootsie Pop Doll Nightie
My Tootsie Pop Doll Nightie is made with the Sugar Plum Nightgown pattern from Peekaboo Pattern Shop. It has a sweet girls nightgown and a little matching doll pattern as a bonus. I had some leftover fabric from Bella’s Tootsie Pop Nightie.
So matching doll pajamas! If you didn’t read the post about that nightgown, my daughter designed it. I repeat: I accept no responsibility for that craziness.
Unrelated: Dance season has begun. We are in a new dance studio. I get to sit in a new lobby with a new herd of moms weekly. They are different typeS of moms than I’m used to. There are 2 rival mom crews. I’ve named them Granola Crew and Bourgeoisie Crew.
Granola Crew all have healthy organic snacks packed neatly in their bags. They don’t want me. They saw when Bella said she was hungry…I pulled a crusty old piece of candy out my purse and told her, “Man up. We’ll grab some burgers after.” I’m pretty sure I heard some gasps. Hey, we’ll eat some bean paste later to make up for it. (Not really though.)
Bourgeoisie Crew…Maybe they thought a was a new recruit at first. That was until I laid across 4 chairs with my Vogue, smacking bubble gum. A whole hour with no obligations- I’m gonna chill my way.
I think maybe they were trying to impress me with their loud conversations. They each took turns bragging but I’m not sure any of them listened; it seemed like they were just each waiting for their turn to speak.
Bella just likes to dance. I should try to play nice since she’s obviously going to keep dragging me to these places. A part of me just wants to show up next week in sweatpants carrying a bucket of fried chicken. That would be entertainment!!!
I’m totally exaggerating y’all. Those moms probably aren’t that bad. I’m not really teasing in the sprit of meanness- more like laughing at my own inadequacy, ha ha! But honestly, I think I’m doing okay. We all choose different battles. That’s our prerogative as moms, to choose what principles are important to us and install them in our kids. My resume looks pretty nice on paper, but it’s not a definition of me. What’s real is what happens inside my home.

After this week I’ll resume my “hide in the car” routine. It’s nice to have a whole hour to catch up on blog reading:)
