Ever buy your child THE perfect outfit for a special occasion and have visions of it becoming an heirloom to be passed down for generations? And as you dress them, wish you could add a layer of bubble wrap around them as to protect the fabric? I have.
For my daughter’s daycare graduation, I found the most precious spring dress. The flaw? It was mostly white. Despite my hesitation, I purchased the dress hoping it would be one we could pass on to the next generation. After the ceremony, we moved outdoor to enjoy the celebration. And that’s when I spotted it….the dessert table. It was filled with red punch, pink cupcakes, chocolate brownies and more sweet treats that were sure to ruin the pretty white dress. I spent the next several minutes trying to make sure none of the sugary goodness touched the fabric when I realized that I was not enjoying the event. I wasn’t letting my daughter enjoy the event. For what purpose?
I dropped my concerns and let her indulge, play and celebrate! I decided to put my faith in Clorox 2 and my new washing machine and let memories be made. Did we end up with a potential monster of a stain? You betcha. Worth it? Totally.
