Today was “dress as your favorite Dr. Suess character” day at school. Luckily my little M still had her costume from Halloween and it still fit. As for my little B…mommy had to get crafty. Nothing like coming up with ideas at 6:30 in the morning…without a cup of coffee even in my system yet.
I had actually thought of the idea of “Thing 2” yesterday and went to our local Wal-mart late last night to see what I could gather up. Needless to say they had nothing on my list of ideas. N*O*T*H*I*N*G. No surprise there really.
I found the blue beanie buried beneath the last of the winter stuff and bought some blue ribbon to pin to the top of the hat to make it look more like wild blue hair. He’s wearing a pajama top, and that is literally sketch board paper that I used a “Sharpie” to write “THING 2” upon and pin it to the shirt. What a way for me to improvise! **pats herself on the back**
I am always so last minute with everything and I keep thinking that one day it will change. But the fact is I have been this way since I can remember. I just cough it up to I work best under pressure. He was excited about the costume and the smile on his face put a smile on mine.
And to add one more thing that doesn’t really relate to my topic but I just feel the need to share is…sometimes as a parent I am constantly thinking that I am messing motherhood up, but this morning (every morning actually but for some reason this morning it really hit me) as we were walking to the front door of the preschool….my little B man ran to get to the door first and upon opening it said “all my ladies first”. I realized I must be doing something right to have such a sweet boy.
