When our daughters are invited to a birthday party, I always like to add something handmade to the store-bought presents. You know there's going to be a moment when items, made by your mom, are not 'cool' any more. That moment has started to arrive: J and I were discussing what present to buy and make for Frencky, when she asked me 'why do we always add a handmade present?' I told her that when she doesn't like it, that's ok too. But this time a girly pouch was still allowed. Lucky me.
