Thank goodness for Fergie and The Black Eyed Peas. Samantha was very inspired by her fashion sense and performance during Sunday’s half-time show, so she got out her paper and proceeded to turn out six different dress designs for her and her friends to wear in their own show. I say thank goodness because I like this idea better than her last – to hold a car wash with her friends to pay for a jumpy house for her birthday party. She got as far as calling her friend Annie about it before I assured Annie’s mom that I had nothing to do with this and do not condone car washes run by six and seven-year-olds. Nor do I condone Fergie-esque performances by six and seven-year-olds, but I sure do love the dress sketches. I was thinking we should turn one into an actual garment. When I was a girl, lots of us had this poster of a beautiful ballet dancer with the caption, If you can dream it, you can achieve it. Is that right? Do any of you remember that poster? Anyway, my message for Samantha (and anyone who reads this blog, actually) is this –
If you can dream it, you can make it!
