"Mom," my ten-year-old daughter said. "I'm going to be part of a fashion designing company with my friend. We're going to make dresses."
"That's nice," I said. "Does one of you know how to sew?"
"Yeah, remember, you took me to that pillow case sewing class at JoAnn Fabric."
"That's a lot different than creating patterns and sewing."
"I have a sewing machine. I'll figure it out. Do you want to see my designs?"
I nodded. She showed me her notebook.
"This is a cloud dress. And this is a snake dress. And this one here is a fish dress."
"Hmmm. Interesting," I said.
"They're modeled after Lady Gaga."
That explained it. (Actually, they were pretty good.)
So I have a tween who wants to be a rock star and who likes Lady Gaga fashion.
I think I'm in trouble!
