One Bling to Rule Them All

Many of my loyal readers have asked, “DadisthenewMom, if you’re such a tech savvy dad-stravaganza, then why does your blog seem to be lacking in pictures of The Child?” The answer is simple: The Child is almost always naked. Not due to lack of clothing, but possibly due to a lack of the right kind of clothing nessesary for good picture taking. The kind that that fuels her imagination.

DadisthenewMom is nothing if not a craftsman. I built The Child’s first bed and her dresser. Her bedtime stories are tailored to specifically delight her current fancies and many of her toys are constructed/repaired in my little workshop. My vast array of skills is as legendary as my drive to acquire new ones. For example, I recently decided to learn to sew.

With spring on the way I wanted to make something she’d not only like but also something she could actually use. I thought a cape would be a simple project. I let The Child pick out her own clasp at the fabric store. I did not intend for her to look quite so much like a hobbit, but to be honest, I’m not all that upset. The Child loves it.

Thus begins a new chapter in my kid’s life: The Era of Custom Clothing.

    hey, Mordor called. it wants its ring back.

    (that was supposed to be a burn, but that cape seems to have some form of fire resistance making it burn proof)

    Oh my goodness….I love this….I wish you had been one of my junior high students that I tried to teach to sew. This is awesome.
