One big problem with being called to the Sunbeams is that I have one long skirt. And if I'm going to be with 3-year-olds for 2 hours each Sunday, I'm going to have to stop wearing my cute, adorable, wonderful, precious knee-length skirts to church. (And I'll start wearing them to work more often.) I'm going to have to buy more long skirts. And wearing long skirts and still looking fashionable is going to be tough. Old Navy currently has nothing. And I don't want to spend more than Old Navy prices on long skirts. So I checked out J. C. Penney. Not promising.
When I mentioned my dilemma to my carpool group, a woman in her 60s said that she had some of her mother's old skirts that she could give me. She assured me that they were youthful and pretty.
She brought them today, which was so kind and sweet of her, and I really do appreciate the thought. But they're not exactly my style. However, I'm sure that on a 90 year old or even a 60 year old, they'd be very youthful.
I think I'm going to need to schedule a shopping trip with my mother-in-law. Only she can help me find age-appropriate, long, and kid-friendly.
