This year, Book Character Dress Up Day at school, they couldn't have their parade outside.
Thunderstorms and flash flooding.
So, it was in the hallways.
Carli wanted to buy a new book, but I thought she had plenty of books at home
that she could choose from.
She was not happy at all with my decision!
She said she didn't like any of her books!
She said she didn't want to dress up.
Well, sorry, that wasn't an option.
Starting in second grade, they have to write a book report,
dress up like that character,
and give the report orally in front of the class!
The day before, I finally picked the book myself.
It needed to be a quick read.
It also needed to be something that we already had some things around the house
that she could use as dress up.
This was what I picked:
"Fancy Nancy Hair Do's and Hair Don'ts"
She read it. Did her report.
One of the questions was "What was your favorite part of the story?"
Her answer was, "I didn't have a favorite part."
I found some things that could work.
I had grand plans for her hair.
She did not.
So she said she wanted some little braids and would put two hair accessories in.
I thought she looked great!
She was still not thrilled.
I hope she did good on her report and she had a good day!
