Help, what do you think:
Okay #1 - The young girls that I've been teaching to sew are going on a Disney World/Caribbean Cruise vacation and I offered to help them make light summer nightgowns for the trip. Here's my dilemma. I bought an easy nightgown pattern (on sale of course) or I found a tutorial for a pillowcase type dress that has elastic at the neckline so it wouldn't need tie straps, that I thought could make an adorable light and easy nightgown. Which do you think? The nightgown would start teaching them about patterns, but it would take much longer to make, or the pillowcase dress which would go faster but isn't a real pattern. I think I'm leaning towards the pillowcase dress!
Now #2 - My daughter is having her Birthday sleepover this Friday. Everything is fine for the actual sleepover, but my friend is talking about leaving her daughter with me the whole next day also because they need to leave at 7:30 in the morning to drive to Sacramento (a 2-3 hour drive) to pick up a friend at the airport. I have told her to let me know what time she wants me to wake Sandia up by and we'll have her ready, but she just says oh that's okay Sandia doesn't need to come with. Then she proceeds to tell me though that they will be gone all day because as long as they're in Sac. they'll want to do some things there, and they'll need to eat lunch there also before heading back. Am I being unreasonable in thinking it isn't a good idea to keep two tired girls together all day, when they have issues about getting along even when they aren't tired. They really like each other, they are just very different.
