Making clothes for kids is 'sew' overrated

My name is Tracy, and I'm sewing challenged.

I'm admitting this today in hope that my children's future teachers, coaches and club advisers will never again expect me to sew, stitch or do anything remotely crafty.


My story is one of humiliation and embarrassment, but I hope by telling it, I will give voice to all the moms out there who want to live up to this tenet of traditional womanhood, but fall painfully short.
