I just have to boast that I think I won some sort of awesome mom award with my recent knit sewing skills. I've been loving knit and the Go-To Legging Pattern (I rave about it HERE). Well, my second grader came home and informed me that the next day was Dress Like a Book Character Day - what?! I need advanced notice for these type of things!
Then I recalled the shirt I own...and how it matches a certain doll that happens to have a book which technically makes her a "book character"...
The only problem - she's wearing teal leggings. Well, awesome mom me was all, no problem, we'll just make some - isn't that funny - like what kind of world am I in that I can just whip up a pair of leggings on a whim?! I love it, and I love that they are so easy, and that I happen to have teal knit fabric in my stash.
And my 4th Grader claimed that he had written a book about himself, so he was just going as himself. Classic 4th grade boy thinking. I don't have a picture of him today - but here's a random one of him and Trevor fixing our Wii (the problem turned out to be a battleship game piece shoved into it - no wonder it wouldn't accept a disc!)
Do your kiddos dress up for school dress-up days??
