Smarter Mom: What Skill Do You Wish You Had?

Posted by   + Show Post

I can sew. A minuscule amount. I can hem a pant leg by hand (if no one is ever looking at it up close), I can make a Halloween costume by adding some fur, I can mend a hole in a stuffed cat. I can't sew a dress or anything like that, which I had to explain the difference to Kiddo the other day. When asked if I could make her a dress, I said I couldn't but my mom, her Mumma could. She used to make my clothes as a kid.

I wish I could sew. Yes, I wish I had a skill like that. Sewing. Not only can it save money and be really fulfilling, it could come in handy if a zombie apocalypse occurs, and we are all cornered into homes. Turning a bed sheet into a fashionable ensemble would be totally useful.

Other ideas I had on skills I wish I had:

-- Being a good photographer, I mean, know how to take pics with a real camera, to document what was happening.

-- Knitting, akin to the sewing skill, you can make things you can use.

-- Cooking, at least one or two nice meals as we wait to battle zombies is a good thing.

-- Playing the piano, because it would be awesome to be able to entertain people if zombies were at my window.

-- Playing golf, not really a skill for the end of the world, but handy and useful I think in certain social situations. 

What is your best skill? What skill do you wish you had?

I'm pretty crafty and creative. I wish I spoke more languages.

I'm a great singer.  I wish I could draw or paint.

Wish I could sew really well. Put colors together for quilts. And knit.

I wish I was a better cake decorator (more sculpting) and could decorate cookies. My mom is an amazing cake decerator but never did cookies. Cooking is #2. I wish I could play an instrument, any instrument. My mom and sis are pianists, DH plays guitar and drums, I can sing and dance bit that is it. Lol

 My best skill is cooking, followed by sewing and photography. I've love to be albe to quilt better.

I guess my best is cooking. But I can't even sew on a button and make it stay. I wish I could sew!
