Winning at Parenting! World Book Day

Winning at Parenting!  World Book Day


This is your reminder!

Next week, school are going to give you very little notice and expect you to send in your child in an elaborate costume.  Dressed ideally as a character from a book.

In recent years, it has become a tradition more stressful than Christmas.

In this house we have had some shockers,  drive by supermarket trips at midnight the night before when a child has come downstairs for a drink and calmly asked what costume I have prepped them – FOR THE NEXT DAY.

This was the year I sent everyone in, in shorts and a t-shirt and we pulled it off as three of The Famous Five.

The kids were terribly disappointed in me.

And I promised to never make them go in home-made again!

Because shorts and a t-shirt is as good as it gets in this house!

So folks, heed my advice, get your sewing done now, if home-made is your thing.

For the rest of you stressed out, no time, world book date despisers, the internet is your friend.

Look at our beauty of a costume for this year!

Mary Poppins – going out for lunch!

You can still buy costumes for the kids online.  No sewing needed, no arts and crafts, just completed perfection – that can be played with time after time.

The internet is an amazing place!

Thanks to Vegaoo, who sent Libby-Sue her costume well ahead of time, we are calmly waiting for World Book Day to begin…

Have you sorted your costume yet?
