I Put On My House Dress

& Sweeten the Day

I've searched all over to find you my photo of Pinays in traditional plaid woven dresses - really yards of fabric, artfully tied above their busts.  But alas, it's no  where to be found.  There's nothing as grounding as a house dress for an ambitious working mama.  It reminds me that I'm Here, nowhere else.  Here to play, to cook, to learn, to teach, to nap, to read, to garden, to stitch, to explore.  I wear them over my pants & they welcome dirt, hugs, jelly, pee, complaints, gifts, spit-up, harvest, runny noses, secrets & tears.  They cheer me up, they cheer them, they keep me on task & on in general.  They are love made visible.
