I have to say that every year that Beanie has been in school
the pupils have been expected to dress up for World Book Day,
and every year it fills me with fear!
Usually because I have forgotten all about it until the last minute
and we have no idea what to go as,
have no time to make an outfit,
or to be perfectly honest
- just can't be bothered.
So far we have gone as Moonface from The Faraway Tree,
normal clothes and a mask made from
cardboard by drawing around a dinner plate!
The children from The Wishing Chair, with his 'girlfriend',
who had decorated a small child's chair and put wings on it
and Beanie just turned up in normal clothes!
Julian from The Famous Five.....normal clothes.
Are you seeing a pattern.....
Last year I think we totally forgot and he just went as himself.
And this year, we have put some thought into it,
well I asked him what he wanted to go as and he didn't know.
He is reading the Anthony Horowitz books about Alex Rider,
and so we suggested that.
A bit of research on Google and we have come up with......
a white PE t-shirt,
a black shirt with red stripes,
black school shoes and a couple of gadgets.
Beanie has informed me that he has a yo-yo and a key ring,
so we have added them too.
I don't know how accurate it is but it will do!
It at least beats all the fairy/princess dresses
and Spiderman/ Batman costumes
from all the other parents who can't be bothered!
So do you love it or hate it?........................
Oh and next year I will have to come up with two costumes
as Monkey will be at school too!
Better start planning now!
