I made Lil Worker Safety Gear, real safety gear for kids, for you. I made it for you because I love you. I made it for you because I know you love to dress up and pretend to be just like me when I'm at work. I couldn't find anything for you that looked like what I would wear at work so I made you some child-sized work gear myself. I made it for you because I know you love to run and play and it scares the hell out of me that one day you'll get a bit too carried away and run into the street at the precisely the wrong time. I've had nightmares about the accident, visions about it, cried about it and I promised myself that I would do anything I could to prevent it from happening. I hope that maybe by wearing something bright, something reflective, the driver might see you two milliseconds earlier and my tears would only be those of relief.
I know I've been working a lot. I didn't know how hard and expensive it would be to make your safety gear. You see, I realized that other parents probably feel the exact same way I do. And now I want to give those parents safety gear to help them protect their children too. Isn't that the right thing to do? I'm stretching myself trying to be a good person, raise you and keep food on our table. I'm committed to helping, to making a positive difference, to protecting priceless lives. It's just really hard to keep it all together. I hope you understand.
You know me. I'm not a seamstress. I can't sew. I can't draw. I drive bucket trucks and cut down big dangerous trees. I promise you that I've done the best with what I have. I will continue to make your safety gear better and better and better and better. I hope you love your gear as much as I love you.
