Ughhhh, what's next? There is always something going on at school, that requires much thought and work on the parents part. I know I am a horrible parent for being frustrated, but ughhhh. So it was 100's Day at school today for Dawson, and his teachers said the kids could dress up like an old person if they wanted to. Unfortunately for Dawson, I am not very creative. This is what we came up with :).
Here is my cute, little, old man...
1st GradeHe had the idea that he wanted to write something on a shirt, so I let him decide what he wanted the shirt to say. I was trying so hard not to laugh when he said, "I am so old I only have one bone in my body". I kept asking if there was something different we should put on it, but he was positive this is what he wanted it to say :). Luckily we had some suspenders in our Halloween costumes. I tried to put a little pillow in his shirt so he had a belly. It looked so cute, but Dawson would not do it. It was a little to much out of his comfort zone. Actually I was surprised he even wanted to dress up. He gets extremely nervous about anything that deviates from normal :) My awesome neighbor gave me the great idea to put cornstarch in his hair.
Wow, I am one awesome parent!!!
Oh well, I gave it my best shot, and he seemed happy enough with the results.
