Guess What, Mom?

"Tomorrow is Greco-Roman Day at school and I need a toga and a laurel wreath"

That's what my 6th grade son just told me. Looks like I'm on my way to Walmart to get a white bedsheet.



What have your kids come up with at the last minute?

I guess you can string a bunch of bay leaves together for the laurel wreath.

We never got any more involved than, "I'm supposed to bring two dozen cupcakes to school today."

TC got me twice last year. He told me about the bake sale around 10PM & the scarecrow one about 10 minutes before we had to leave for school. I wanted to hang him by his toenails & beat him with a wet noodle!!

"There's a bake sale at school tomorrow. I told the teacher you'd make chocolate chip cookies for it."

"I have to dress up like a scarecrow today."

This is what I have to look forward to, eh?!? What did you do for a scarecrow costume on such short notice?

I cut the legs off a pair of jeans that were too short for him but still fit in the waist(i cut the in a zig-zag pattern a little below the knees), tied a red & white bandana around his neck, & used some raffia around his wrists & around the button holes of one of his old plaid shirts. I also ran across a straw hat when I was getting out the raffia. I had him ready to go in 15 mintues & got him to school on time.
