This simple-seeming question can have life-altering implications. When my own daughter has been asked this, her reply has been "to be a baker". Which is great. Really. But how often does your daughter reply, "I want to be a mother." To this end, I have been working on pretend playthings that will help my girls develop their maternal side.
I was blessed to have parents who provided playthings that allowed me to pretend to be a mommy. I want to do the same thing for my girls. I've given my girls the doll sized crib that was mine when I was little, and it was in need of a makeover.
For the next two weeks, I'll share tutorials on how to make dolly-size bedding. Every measurement will be given in proportions, so no matter what size crib you have--a toy size or full size--you can apply these techniques.
(By the way, this is not your typical doll crib use.)
I'm also going to be sharing some feelings and thoughts on motherhood, a love note to my daughters. Here's a preview:
