We are having a panic. My son's school is having a book week parade tomorrow, this is where everyone has to dress up as their favourite book character. I am in no way domestic so making a costume is totally out of the question. As my son informed me the only dress ups we seem to have at home are tinkerbell, cinderella and various other fairy costumes. It would probably damage him too much to make him wear a tinkerbell outfit. I have suggested so far Captain Underpants - he is not too impressed with that. The latest suggestion is the invisible man, I could then keep him home for the day - panic over!!!
He is so over dress ups so we don't have them, he is too old for spiderman and batman but the pressure the school is putting on him is really getting to him. Why do the schools put so much pressure on kids and therefore the parents. This is supposed to be enjoyable for them, but from what I am hearing most of them are stressing about outdoing their mates.
