The Pink Apron

Want to see something cute?



Well.

Don’t pay attention to the crying child.

Pay attention to the ultra adorable apron.

No, I didn’t make it. Are you kidding me? If I tried to sew, I’d probably thread my fingers together by accident.

Andrea over at Las Vegas Mama made it.

And Natalie loves it, despite her tears in the photo. I believe she was pissy because I said she couldn’t have cake for dinner. Granted, I understand her disappointment, sometimes I’d love to have cake for dinner.

But anyhow, when Natalie got the apron, she was thrilled.

“A princess!” she bellowed, grabbing it.

She wore the apron as she played house.



She wore the apron as she made silly faces.



She wore the apron as she watched TV.



She stuck a grasshopper in the apron pocket and scared the crap out of her Mommy. No photo, because I was too busy yelping, “Get it out, get it out, get it out.”

She even wanted to wear the apron to bed, but I made her take it off.

Maybe the apron will inspire her to become a fabulous cook! Then she can make these elaborate dishes for me and she’ll be all, “And it was all because Andrea made me an apron when I was three.”

Are you lusting for an apron for your little one now?

If so, head over to Andrea’s blog and enter her giveaway! It’ll run for a week.

And who knows, maybe the apron will inspire your little one to become a famous cook too.

  1. It is so cute even through her sreams! The hubs bought me a sewing machine a few years back for Christmas and I have made a few things on it...it really is fun once you get enough gumption to take it out of the box :O)

  4. I'm betting the happy pics will always outnumber the not so happy pics when she's wearing the apron.

  10. Oh that's so cute! I bet she'll be cooking all the time. You probably won't even have to anymore.

  11. She is seriously cute tears and all! I want to thank you and so does the extra 5 or so pounds I blame you for! Why the intro to Pumpkin pie poptarts!! I have a serious addiction! Hope your Hubby is staying safe and home soon.

  12. Love the photos of Natalie!!! And that apron is so adorable!

    Even though my son loves to help me cook, I am pretty sure his daddy would be against me putting him in a girly apron. ;)

  13. Is it bad that I'd like that apron for myself...even though I don't cook? Seriously adorable (as is Natalie).

  15. I can tell those are tears of joy.

  16. Love the apron! Too cute but don't think my 9 year old son would enjoy it quite as much as Natalie ;)

    Cake for dinner, well, my father fed us ice cream cake for breakfast after family birthdays. He said it had dairy so we were good, although my conduct grades did not say I was good lol

  17. She reminds me of Belle from Beauty and the Beast. Always wearing her apron! :)

  18. Maybe you can get an apron to wear when Tom comes home. (yes, guy thought, just the apron)

  19. I am wanting one for me, not my kids...

    ReplyDelete
  20. The apron may inspire her to become a baker and make her own cakes to eat whenever and wherever she wants! Hehe!

    ReplyDelete
  21. Still laughing about that first photo!! Thanks! Hilarious and the apron is cute.

    ReplyDelete
  22. Very funny, particularly the grasshopper section. I daren't buy aprons for my little ones. As they are all over 20 now, they may feel I am making comments on their ability to cope away from home.

  23. That is my reaction too, when the hubby tells me I can't have cake or chocolate for dinner/breakfast. A grasshopper as a cooking assistant would have freaked me out also. Your daughter and the apron are adorable!

    ReplyDelete
  24. She looks adorable in the apron even with tears streaming down her face.

    I want cake for breakfast, too.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Love the grasshopper story. If she becomes a famous cook do you think she'll have cake every night for dinner? I would...but I guess she'd have to become a baker not a cook...

    ReplyDelete
  26. Very cute, despite the tears! And I agree cake for dinner sounds fabulous.

    ReplyDelete
  27. Maybe if I got a cute little apron it would make ME a fabulous cook??

    ReplyDelete
  28. That is adorable! I would want one if I had a child. And I feel your pain on the grasshopper issue.

  29. Natalie looks cute no matter WHAT her disposition!

    The apron IS adorable, though!

  30. Pretty sure I've officially back-read almost every single one of your posts (at least this year!). You're hilarious. I am one of your newer followers and you crack me up every time I read your stuff. So, even though you've already received one of these, I'm passing along the Versatile Blogger Award to you :)

  33. I love when my girls wear their aprons..so cute!

    ReplyDelete
  34. She is really such a cute girl! Always!

    ReplyDelete
  35. Ha! Your little one sounds just like my niece... she had to show me the snake she caught eeeekks!!! I must say her apron is super cute on her!

    ReplyDelete
  36. It wouldn't look as good on me.

    ReplyDelete
  37. It just doesn't matter whether Miss Natalie is a blubberin' blather or a cheerful cutie she is just adorable. Love the pics sweetie!!!

    Ya'll have the most beautiful 'fall' day now, ya hear!!!

    ReplyDelete
  38. Awww your daughter is so cute, whether smiling or crying. Hehe. And yeah, I totally understand her tears too. Although when you're older and you actually do eat cake for dinner, tears still come anyway after you realize how many pounds you've gained. Sigh.

    I love this apron SO much! I don't have any kids, but if this was in big-people size, I would totally get one. I love pink! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  39. wait- it is cute, but when I won an adult apron? My husband was all, "well, you should cook now." This isn't going to have the same effect on the kids, is it? You know, "Mom, let's cook!"

    ReplyDelete
  40. I don't cook, but I love aprons.

    I made one in Home Ec that was seriously pretty awesome. To this day, I don't know how the hell I did it.

    ReplyDelete
  41. what about wearing it while shes sweeping the floor? put that cute thing to work... just kidding...

    ReplyDelete
  42. Natalie is so cute no matter what she is doing. You are so blessed.
    I have something for you to do. Come over to my blog and pick up a 3in1 award dear. You earned it.

  43. 2 questions:
    Cake for dinner is wrong?
    And what is this clothing you call... apron, is it? Is it some sort of sundress?

    ReplyDelete
  44. Maybe she's crying in the first photo because her soufflé fell! Darling apron ... I'd stay in it all day too!

    ReplyDelete
  45. Liked the part where she stuck the grasshopper in the pocket. Ha ha

    ReplyDelete
  46. that apron is adorable. I bought G a cape thinking he would love it and I would love him in it and he refuses to wear it.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Awww! My teenage son is a bit of an aspiring cook, but I'm not sure Andrea makes one to fit him :)

    Great photos! Too bad you couldn't get a pic of the grasshopper, too :)
