I'm all over this preschool stuff...

This is how Charlie looked when I picked him up from preschool today. How cute is that!?!?!

He cracked me up with the owl shirt, the owl hat and the noodle's like he's "Mr. Preschool"!!

Today was "Dress like your mascot day" at preschool. (As a side note, I'm liking this "mascot day" thing a lot better now that I don't have to dress a bear, an ant AND a snail...that was HARD and at the time, I wasn't very good at it). So anyway, Charlie and I made this shirt last year. Actually, Charlie and I made the, bought the materials, looked for a picture of an owl to copy, drew an owl on the felt, cut it all out, made some eyes, cut them out, and then glued it all on the shirt... and then Charlie and Daddy finished it off by gluing on a few feathers when I had to leave to teach RE. It turned out very cute and when it was done, I was feeling pretty good about my creativity. The "funny" part of that story is that the next day, whenever anyone commented on his shirt, Charlie proudly told them "My **DADDY** made this shirt for me!!!".


Well, until today, Charlie hadn't seen the shirt for a year...not too many occasions have come up where we needed a homemade owl shirt, I guess. And, well, too bad for "Daddy" Charlie didn't remember the part of the story where Daddy did all of the work. So, I was able to re-write history (the way it should have been written to begin with) and I take some of my credit back. :-)

Good, I'm glad the story is back to being factual! I'm also glad that it's Friday, so you can do a Flashback... I'd love to see the snail costume :-). BTW- there is no way Charlie could look any cuter!!
