I have to tell this story about my son’s shirt that he wore to his graduation. As you can see it was a nice black shirt with a white collar and white cuffs, exactly what he wanted but, IMPOSSIBLE to find! My son doesn’t ask for much so when he wanted this particular shirt, I thought, what the heck, I’ll get it for him.
Let me tell you, it was not an easy task for mom to pull this one off. I spent hours on the internet trying to find this darn shirt in his size to no avail. It was no where to be found. Sure, I could get it in a men’s 17 1/2 x 34 but that would be huge and to alter it would be a nightmare. I thought what do I do?
Then the idea came to me. I went out and purchased a black shirt and a white shirt, same, brand, same style. I took them to the dry cleaners and asked them to put the white collar and cuffs on the black shirt. They looked at me as if I had three heads but, they did it.
You can’t imagine the smile on his face when my husband picked it up and brought it home. Who would have thought that a shirt could bring so much happiness to a kid! It cost a small fortune but, it was worth every penny to see him walk with pride amongst his classmates.
Chalk another one up for this MommyWarrior!
