It’s Time to Give Up

Last weekend I spent time trying to make an onion costume for CJ.  It will be his costume for their school’s coming Nutrition Month celebration on Thursday.  I spent the whole Saturday morning trying to construct something like a Japanese lantern that will fit him but I just can’t get the look that I want.  I tried to make the costume using papers, next I tried to use a piece of cloth but nothing worked out the way I want it to be.  The costume doesn’t look like an onion … it looked like a piece of trash, haaaay.

Yesterday, I again tried to make the costume but still the same, it’s not good.  I was really irritated because I can’t get the look that I want.  There even came a time that I’m already bad mouthing … so bad of me, I know, but sometimes when I’m irritated I just can’t control my mouth which is a very bad example to my children.  CJ although a little scared still managed to tell me “O mama, bad yon ha!”

Okay, that’s it.  I have to stop what I’m doing.  I know I’m not really that creative type and even if I’ll try to make that costume the whole day, I won’t be accomplishing anything so it’s time to give up and just leave this costume making to the hands of the experts.


  1. My husband and I were the one who designed our son's tomato costume during their Nutrition Month. I just asked my sister's expertise in sewing it.

    We were glad we did it because my son got be best costume award.

  2. OK lang yun sis, but next time try asking help from someone who's more expert. =)
