you know Mommy’s a designer when …

you finally bring the letter bag home from preschool and you are assigned “Z” — meaning your task is to fill the bag with items around the house that start with the letter “Z.”  And she sends you with …

Scalamandre wallcovering,

a zebrawood tray from Dransfield & Ross,

and Schumacher’s zig zag fabric (Antibes Chevron).

My poor twins.  Oh, the suffering.  I guess the other moms send zucchini.

    You are right, Traci! Other mom's would have sent zucchini. How lucky are they to get the 'cool' designer mom! They can't stump you....

    Ah yes, but I bet the other moms would rather this than zucchini any day! It's the dads that want the zucchini, and only if it's in something chocolately and sweet! The dads will cringe at the designer's offerings because they know what that means! $$$ aka wife loves it therefore must have ;-)

    I am giggling. I have a story that falls in line with this. Both my older boys were dating in high school and on two different occasions both their girlfriends told me they were so amazed when my boys knew that a color was khaki or beige or taupe instead of calling it light brown!! They are now married to these beautiful blond, blue eyed beauties. So you never know, it might work to their benefit!!! xo Kathysue

    That is so funny! Next thing you know you will be sending birthday cupcakes with color coordinated plates and napkins. My daughter's friends were impressed for years that I brought them hot chocolate on a tray! Lucky kids, I say!
