What? where? who?
Dress up day at Kinder!
Oh - that type of Emergency....Yes, but my son is ill inclined to 'dress-up' and avoided all topics of conversation in the lead up to this day.
Criteria was the little kinder kids had to dress up as a character from a story book they had. This was so it ruled out a super-hero battle with the likes of Batman, Superman, Ben 10 and a few Ninja's trying to work out which was was superior. Not that this would have helped, my son has no idea who these superhero's are - hasn't watched one episode of Batman, never seen Spiderman and well, Ben 10 is just the guy that is on a spare pair of pj's he owns.
Finally, on about Wednesday this week, he was keen to dress up as a Fireman. Right. Raided my fabric supply - not very fire-man stocked. Luckly a girlfriend had some yellow overalls in her daughters dress up box and I was given permission to "do whatever" to them!
Quick visit to Spotlight - grrrrrrrr......still no Fireman-esque badges, emblems - nothing. My son insisted that his Fireman outfit had to have a number on it. Ok, what number (I feared he would choose 4 or 5 numbers making him look more like a jailed in-mate that a service man) but he settled for the number 10.
Few bits of red fabric, fireman's badge whipped up few minutes before heading out the door and a hat and this little 'anti-dress up's boy' was so excited!!! Helped having Nonna and Nonno here for extra encouragement!
