tutu bug emerges despite a house full of Boys...

How did that happen? Here I am, making these super girly tutu's and I live with three 'boys'! My husband and I have two sons and I am making tutu's. We always wanted a girl, which obviously didn't happen, but I wouldn't trade those rough-and-tumble train and lego lovin' boys for anything! At times the sibling rivalry makes me want to rip my hair out (I was an only child, which makes the sibling rivalry thing a mystery...), but that's what makes creating tutu's so fun for me. I get to immerse myself in this world of pink and purple, tulle and fluff, fairy tales and princesses. It's fun, I enjoy it. I even get the boys' input, asking them, "Which is your favorite?" or "What color tutu do you think so and so would like for their birthday?" My four year old responds, "But mom, I'm a boy, I don't like tutu's, but I'd pick the blue one!" My eight year old rolls his eyes and says, "MOM?!?!....Uh, do you make one in camouflage?" It makes the boys step into my world for a bit and I think it's good for them to get exposure to a girls' perspective. I am so super thankful to my husband for being supportive, encouraging me, creating my website, giving me valuable feedback, and even helping with design ideas! So yes, I am the tutu maker who lives with boys, and I wouldn't trade it for the world!!

Here's our Christmas photo. Me with my three handsome guys!!
