Compared to my last few posts, this one, today, is a more personal one. Hope ya don't mind?
Today at the bumblebee' school, they are celebrating world book day. If you're unfamiliar with this, schools let the children dress up as favourite book characters, and are usually given a £1.00 book voucher.
This year the theme was " monsters".....we oooohed and aaaahed, and the bumblebee's came up with........ahem....dementors from Harry Potter. I am totally aware that there are a lot of children that don't watch the Harry Potter films, they are deemed too scary. That's fine. Some of the films are 12's after all.
However, in this house I let them watch it. They watch Doctor who too. Each to their own. Everyone's different. yep, I am aware also that I have a 5yr old.....It's not like I'm letting them watch a gory horror film, lets keep a bit of perspective!
Anyway, back to it, I did say "no" to little bumblebee being a dementor at school....double standards? ......I just didn't want her scaring some of the younger children in her class, that's all!
So big bumblebee WAS a dementor, and little bumblebee decided on being a wild thing, from where the wild things are.
All in all, I had happy bumblebee's this morning.
Though my big girl has itchy eyes and couldn't stop sneezing......"why are you sneezing so much this morning?" I asked her "I'm not sure " she said........oh that will be the daffodils I plucked from the garden yesterday......
Remember nattie to remove them later................don't forget will you?
So we make do and mend here. The fleece jumpsuit little bumblebee has on, was once a fleece dress for a Jemima puddle Duck costume I made a few years before. I cut legs, and a slit at the back, added a button and elastic for her. Added a tail and used a little princess felt crown she had in her dressing up box. Done.
Big Bumblebee's costume, I did have to buy the fabric for, but I know they will play H.Potter's with it .....so easy ...a rectangle of fabric, scissors, sewing machine, face paints....dark clothes underneath. Done.
