Last week Grace’s school had a variety of reading activities. One was “dress like your favorite book character”.
Grace’s first choice was “The Grouchy Ladybug” by Eric Carle because she loves ladybugs so much. She wanted Daddy to take her shopping for a ladybug costume after he got home from work. I told her we weren’t spending any money and that we would think about it when she got home from school.
Well, I am so proud of this little girl. She came bounding off the bus “I know what I am going to be!!!” She thought about it at school and decided she would be “Slinky Malinki” because she already had the ears and black clothes/shoes and the book. I could paint whiskers on her face and she loves black cats!!
She was so sweet and gracious about it, didn’t turn into the Grouchy Ladybug at all. And as you can see in the above picture, she was pretty excited.
