We’re having dress-up days at school for Week of the Young Child, and so far they’ve been pretty easy – Hat Day, Sports Day (I wore Lloyd’s Cardinals shirt), Mix-N-Match, Pajama Day (which was yesterday and was AWESOME), and Disney Costume Day. The ‘Disney’ just means something nice – no characters that fight or have weapons. (I know, I’m a wet blanket.)

Anyway, the costume day really stumped me. Short of wearing my wedding dress and being Giselle, I really had little choice.

Paper & staples.  Macguyver would be proud.

I’m going with cat ears and drawn-on whiskers. Good ’nuff.

    Each year when we do this for Lutheran Schools Week, I search online for dress day ideas. There are some really creative ones that I would never have thought of.

    I’m glad we don’t do Disney Day though. I have a hard enough time with “sports shirt day”. What the heck am I supposed to wear on a day like that? Maybe next time it happens, I’ll make some cat ears.

    “…even though you’re vermin…”

    Hahaha! I haven’t watched that in a long time.

    The vision of you as Giselle was awesome…has anyone ever been THAT PERKY?!? She’s exhausting.

    Excellent! Are you any cat in particular? An Aristocat? Figaro?

    I was the Cat in the Hat once. I remember making the tall hat was a little bit of a challenge.

    (love the song btw. I’m going to sing it today as I work…of course I’ll have to change the lyrics to fit my duties)

    I think you should have worn the wedding dress. The kids would all have thought you were Cinderella. I just know it.
