Silly me thought we had agreed on making a kangaroo costume and after picking out fabric and patterns together I got to work behind the sewing machine.
I dropped her off at kinder in casual dress - a series of tables were lined up together to make a costume "cat walk" along the length of the kinder room - but she would not put the costume on... I thought perhaps she might put it on later in the day, once she go into the swing of things.
On picking her up I asked the kinder assistant TWICE, just to make sure I didn't hear what she said incorrectly - which was No Hj did not wear her costume today. Well Mummy's heart sank.
On the way home I recalled an Easter Bonnet parade at school, and a squashed Easter bonnet in my school bag that mum decorated for me with sewn pop corn all over it - Hj and I had a little giggle all the way home!
