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.
