The Green Crayon Costume or How to Be a Very Bad Mother
When Amanda (Bean) was 4 or 5 I decided to create a costume for her that would look like a green crayon. Brilliant huh! I thought I was. I made the body part out of a piece of poster board and wrote the crayon stuff on it in black. I made her a little pointed hat out of more poster board and tied it under her chin. She wore black tights (her and tights are another story!) and little black shoes. It was a wonderful idea if I do say so myself.
It wasn't! shortly after beginning her trek around the neighborhood with her sisters they brought her home in tears. With the stiff poster board she couldn't get up and down stairs and she had to take tiny little steps or she would pull herself down!! She was very disappointed and mad. She still doesn't think it was a good idea! Diane
