Since Dylan started school in the fall he has been reading Scaredy Squirrel books by Melanie Watt. He owns three of them and he reads them all the time. They are his favorite books and if given the opportunity he will tell you all the details of Scaredy's life :)
At the end of every month the boys school has a dress up day. Usually its just red and green day (December) red, white and pink day (February) black and orange day (October), but this month its book character dress up day. I asked Dylan what he wanted to dress up as and you can just guess the answer I got.
"Mommy I am going to be Scaredy Squirrel at the beach. I can wear oven mitts to stop germs, have a rubber band to stop the lobsters from biting me and wear a helmet to stop falling coconuts!"
I don't know why I even asked....... now I get to try and dress him up as a squirrel. Why he couldn't have been simple and picked something like Xander who is dressing up as Captain Hook , thankfully we have all the items to pull this off very easily. Now I just have to figure out how to make a squirrel tail.
