Everyone in Ryan's class had to dress as a pig for the 1st grade musical; parents were tasked with creating a homemade costume.
Ryan wanted his pig to be muddy, so I let him take his shirt outside and use it to clean off my dusty patio table.
I realized when we got to the musical that most of the other moms of "muddy" little pigs utilized brown paint instead of actual dirt. Oh well. Nothing wrong with a little authenticity, right?
I thought Ryan might be a little embarrassed to wear a pink shirt, a snout, and a headband with pig ears attached.
Nope. He was good with it. The fact that every other boy in his class was dressed basically the same way helped. First grade boy solidarity!
Great job on the costume! I'm cracking up about using real dirt. I'd never even think to use paint! Our minds must think alike. :-)
