My son who is in the 8Th Grade will be culminating this coming Monday. I am really excited about this step in his life. My issue is What to wear to this.. As I have written before, I have a hard time with clothing. Just trying to find the right fit SUCK! Dress is what is hard.. I want to wear long flowing skirts like others. BUT when I go and try them on.. they become to short... GRRR! I have thought maybe I should get into the clothing industry and start making my own clothing line... YA RIGHT! I love to sew, craft and do all that fun stuff... but make clothing! I would LOVE to learn how to make bras! That alone is a living doom for me... Ya, I could go to lane bryant and pay 52.00 for 1 bras... or like their sale right now by 2 bra's and get 2 free! GREAT DEAL!! I know huh.. but to drop 104.00 + Tax is not my idea of a fun time! Why is it just cause we are bigger or taller that things have to cost so darn much! I know I complain about not finding stuff in my size, I know short people have a hard time too. But when i go shopping to find stuff.. it is always to shot.. but then again being 5'10" most everything is short!
I went to the store last night to buy stuff for root beer floats for the kids, and as I was standing there I started to laugh to myself.. I should have taken a picture.. most the people were much shorting then I. except the men.. I really dislike being as tall as men.. DANG THESE AMAZON WOMEN GENE !!!!
I guess I need to learn to love who I am.. and I try.. but when it comes to a special occasion such as my son culminating and I feel as if I can't find anything to wear to this special occasion, life would be good. Honestly, I didnt want to go in jeans and a nice shirt... I wanted to look nice for my son. I want him to be proud of me when he looks out in the audience at me and thing.. THAT'S MY MOM! I am sure he will still think that, I do know that clothing are not what makes a person.. but they surely do make ones self feel better! I never really knew how much clothing could effect a persons self esteem. Or is that just me?
