Friday was Children in Need Day. At my daughter's school the pupils were offered a choice of spots or fancy dress.
I knew her choice as soon as I read the note aloud. 6 times she has been allowed fancy dress, 5 times she has worn the princess dress and on 1 occasion I persuaded her to go as a pirate.
Now, a sane mother would think - great, all I have to do is wash the dress in time.
A crafting mum? Well they start thinking - she could go as anything she likes... she just has to choose.

I don't claim it to be a great costume, but 1 hours work and a 5 year old and her friends were convinced it was Rosie.

As I'm sure you could have predicted, her brother was not impressed, when I didn't produce a Raggles costume. However I managed to fob him off with a brown dressing gown with rabbit ears included!
But I have made a mental note that next fancy dress day she can go as a princess
