“When my grandchildren come to visit
wearing new white t-shirts . . .
I immediately wonder
what in the world their mothers were thinking ?”
It is impossible for me to send a child home clean. I try and I try but it always ends the same way. There are the problems of dirt, mud, juice, grass, water, paint, markers, glue, sand, sunscreen, bug spray, fruit roll-ups, goldfish soup, spaghetti-os, ice cream, smoothies, chocolate milk, lunchables with oreos, and other dirty things that children see with their x-ray vision that grandma’s can’t see until it is too late.
So, at least the little princesses can cover their white blouses with a bling bling bib. For only one dollar and sixty-nine cents, I became the proud owner of this finger towel-turned bling bling bib. I cut a hole for the neck and slit the rest to the end of the towel. I finished the edge with bias tape (stretchy fabric cut on the bias which comes in a package and can be any color) and added Velcro to hold the back together. I tucked a little rick rack into the neck too. When mommy first walks in, she sees only the dirty face, hands and bib and doesn’t notice the dirty shirt until I am waving good-bye. Washes fine because . . . it is a towel, of course. ! Easy, easy, easy !
