An Aspiring Fashion Designer…



My 7-year-old wants to be a fashion designer. I remember being young and there being many things I wanted to be when I grew up, but I never remember being as serious about any of them as she seems about this. She is designing all the time. She has a plan. She is going to go to school in NYC for fashion design and go abroad to Paris.

She’s good at it too. She creates these outfits and often I tell her that I wish she could make them for me now. I’d wear them. They’re good. It’s time to start art classes and sewing classes. I can’t sew at all, so I can’t help her there. If she’s designing like this at 7, I can’t wait to see what she does as she gets older.

Here is some of the work from my 7-year-old aspiring fashion designer…

I’m a mom. And you can’t take the rest of me without taking the mom part. You can’t love the fun-loving, football-watching, martini-drinking, hip-shaking, sarcastic girl in me without also loving the mom. I will spend my days loving my kids, trying to read to them twice a day, doing all the activities they love that drive adults crazy, taking them to the irritating kid-play places, going out of my way to make sure I am making the best and healthiest choices for them in every way I can, and generally doing what I can to make them happy whatever it takes. On the other hand…I will also put on my mini-dress and heels and go out dancing, or wear my bikini to lay by the pool and have a cocktail, or avidly watch football on Sunday while drinking beer, downing wings and yelling at the TV. I’m not the typical mom. I’m also not the typical stiletto-wearing girl in the club, bikini-clad girl on the beach, or jersey-wearing girl in the sports bar. But it's all part of the package that makes me…me. And what fun is being typical? View all posts by spicysugarblog
