My little fashion designer

Originally uploaded by Pranamama.

Ella insisted the dress needed more pins at the hem. In Fact, she used all of my pins (it was so heavy when she was done!) She insisted that I warn her each time that they are sharp, and after each pin (upwards of 100) she said “Look!” while awaiting my surprise and admiration. This was one of the most productive 90 minutes I have ever spent on “work things” while she’s been awake. Break out the pins and magnetic bowl!!

If anyone had told me I would be giving my 23 month old daughter scissors and pins to play with I would have looked at them like they had 3 heads. Alas, it is I who have 3 heads.

    How adorable! I think I need to get one of those magnetic bowls. Will (29 months) spilled my pins all over yesterday while playing with them!

  3. My you are brave. I’d be along the line of having 3 heads too… but then my grandma tells that she was making dresses at the age of 3.

  5. LOL – so cute! Ronja plays with pins and scissors too – Frida doesn’t! 🙂 If you really did give her a warning with each pin, you must be the world’s most patient Mom! 😉
