I Can Do It Myself!

My first two children were/are more than content to let me do everything for them. My third wants to do everything herself. So, to avoid seeing the precarious stacks of baskets and boxes she normally uses to change her wardrobe 5 times a day, I asked my sweetie to help me make her a kid-height closet rod.

We simply picked out the fattest wooden dowel at the home improvement store, cut it to the right size in the store, and bought some cording. I let my husband measure - I hate measuring - and get the cord the right size. He looped it around the dowel and tied it snugly to the closet rod and even melted the knot (nylon cord) to make it extra sturdy.

I'll just have to rotate the dresses occasionally so she doesn't get bored.

As you can see, she loves dresses and she is so excited to be able to Do It Herself!

What a sweetheart! So...does she take after you or her daddy?

What a great idea to make more storage space!

Ohmygosh! This is so cool! It's every little girl's dream. She can play pretend or just change her pretty little clothes whenever she chooses. Not only adorable but also creative and fun!

That is so wonderful - it is good that she is doing some of the organizing herself - it helps mom out a lot!
