The preschool years: Princesses

26 Apr

April 2010

Within five minutes of waking up one Monday morning we were in our traditional morning attire:

I mean, isn’t it normal to have two tinkerbells in one family? 

Shortly afterwards, we had to admire our work from the previous evening.

Because, you know, we’re princesses.

The best valentine

I visited J3’s class for the valentine party.  Outside the classroom was a bulletin board decorated with doily hearts that each student had made.  My heart melted when I saw J3’s heart.  In little bitty letters he had printed the name of each member of our family on to the curves of the doily to encircle the heart.  Not a single other student had written on theirs.  Only he had written on his, and he chose to decorate it with the people he loves the most, his family.  What a gift for his mommy on Valentines day, the expression of his love for his whole grade to see.

Halloween has always been big at our house.  The only way to make it bigger?

AC loves shoes.  Problem is, she rarely has on HER shoes.

Here she is in Boo’s running shoes:

But none of her own!

Surely you’ve never seen a scarier darth vader…

or a more realistic spider man…

But have you ever seen one with bluer eyes?!

This isn’t a Halloween costume.  It’s a Tuesday costume.  You know, what we wear on a random Tuesday.  To tea in the afternoon, or to bed in the evening, or to whatsoever strikes our fancy at whatever moment it strikes us. 

And this isn’t a Halloween costume either.  It’s an I-made-my-own-Tuesday-costume costume.

Because you never know when you might need a robot–or a princess– on a Tuesday.
