So the big day rolls around and the teacher calls and says something like "Maybe I didn't communicate this to you clearly enough..." And I was like "What? When? OMG!"
But it turned out okay. The teacher said we would move it to the next day, so Gooser came home and gathered up a bagful of his favorite things to show his classmates. Me Day is sort of a glorified show and tell--each kid gets to be in the spotlight for one day and show off their cool stuff and have their moms come in (or not, if you're me...).
Here's Gooser with his bag o' tricks ready to present:
Let's see what he brought...
A cheapo pumpkin and ghost that we got at the 7-11. I'm not sure how they made the cut!
Surprise!! (NOT!). His Spiderman costume:
Even bigger surprise (NOT)! His Batman costume:
His ancient Snoopy that he sleeps with every night. This was one of Andy's old toys that Gooser has adopted:
Believe it or not--this is a blanket! As you can see, it has been well-loved. This was crocheted by my mother in law and was, once upon a time, multicolored, rectangular-shaped and had tassels. It is very appropriately-named: "Ick." The kids all got a big kick out of it!
Here is Gooser posing with his life-sized portrait that he made. I was very impressed with the detail he put into the guitars on the shirt and the doo-dads on the Crocs!
I tried to redeem my guilty self by having the local bakery whip up a batch of Batman cookies for Gooser to share with his classmates.
They are jostled because, just as I was pulling up in front of school, a crazed dog ran in front of my car and I had to SLAM on the brakes as the cookies flew across the car!
