Nearly three years ago, my daughter was born. I was so excited to have a little girl. Both my husband and I had wanted a girl, so when she was born, healthy and perfect, we were thrilled.
A few weeks after her birth, I was going to take her to church for the first time. But, of course, she needed to be dressed for the occasion. My husband and I set off to find a cute dress and something for her hair.
We found a dress with relatively no problem, although I was surprised at a lot of stores lack of inventory when it came to dresses for newborns. Everything was too big, by a lot!
Next, came the task of finding a bow. I thought this was going to be a breeze. After all, everywhere I turned I seemed to always see a mother and her daughter with a huge-a bow in her hair. We're talking, the bow the size of the kid's entire face.
I searched and searched and searched for a freakin' bow but couldn't find anything I liked, or that was big enough. Where were these mom's finding all the gi-normous bows?
I felt like such a failure when my daughter made her spiritual debut wearing a size appropriate bow.
When she should've been wearing something like this.
One day at church, I asked a mom that was your quintessential "mom with the daughters that always have huge bows in their hair" about where she got her bows. She proceeded to tell me she MADE them.
This was not what I wanted to hear. This was suppose to be easy. I was suppose to go to a store, buy a huge bow for my daughter and be done with it. Not make the bow. That requires craftiness and I'm just not crafty. Put me in front of a computer and I'll take care of anything, but put me in front of a sewing machine or anything like that I'm completely lost.
Needless to say, my daughter still doesn't have any cute hair bows, but I'm determined to change that. If you know of any good stores, local or online, that sell awesome, yet reasonably priced hair bows please let me know.
