I'm such a failure!

Instead of handcrafting DD a birthday outfit from sustainable organic banana leaves or having one made by a meditating vegan homesteader on Etsy, I gave up and bought a dress at Costco.

Re: I'm such a failure!

First of all, this made me laugh. Secondly, I must be a bigger failure, because I didn't buy DD a birthday outfit last year. She ran around in her swimsuit at her little party with a few friends. And not a new swimsuit. Not an organic swimsuit. Just one her grandma gave her from Kmart. Feel better. :-)

Sinner.









I'm kidding. Remember, I'm the mom that voted republican, so take what I say with a grain of salt.

My youngest's first birthday is this upcoming month, and she'll probably just wear whatever easter dress my mother bought her. I havn't even seen it yet, and it probably came from Walmart. This is me, a bottom feeder.

This made me laugh!

Did you at least bake her an entirely organic cake with materials you grew and harvested entirely on your own from your off the grid homestead? Don't forget to wrap her presents in unpaper wrapping paper, and that fabric better be organic cotton and woven by women in a third world country who use the profit to sustain their family of 200 for a week with the sale of each item.
