I knew I wanted a floral print and I knew I only had 30 minutes to pick it, get it cut, and buy it. With a trach child getting out has become much more of a trial. Only those who have been specifically trained to take care of traches can babysit. I had to take a 5 day course before they would release Maaike from the hospital to me. This leaves me with my mother-in-law (who graciously took the class at the hospital with me as my husband was still back in China), my husband (who I have now trained), and my sister-in-law Melissa (who is an ER nurse). We were advised not to take Maaike out during cold and flu season, so you can see how this is going, but really, any mom with a new baby, or any kids at all, knows what I am talking about. So when you finally get the opportunity to get out it becomes an all or nothing kind of a trip.I can just hear Tim Gunn saying that this print is too safe, but I lets face it, I'm not hitting the runway any time soon. I did find a light blue vintage floral print that I loved, but the fabric weight was much too light for this structured of a pattern. Next time. All in all a successful trip. Now to cut out my muslin.
