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.
