Crafty Momma

One of my little known talents is being able to whip up a costume on a day's notice out of paper towel rolls and glue. Just call me Momma McGyver. With help from a friend, I've sent my kid off as an orphan for an Annie play, St. Patrick (complete with rubber snake) and this morning, I sent Belly to school dressed as Link, from the Legend of Zelda. He even sings the song, "Link, has come to town, to SAAAAVE the Princess Zelda!"
Today is fairy tale dress up day, and I assumed Belly would want to be a prince because when I tell bedtimes stories, they are the Brave Prince Belly and the Honorable Prince Golden Boy. But no, he insisted he had to be Link. With Golden Boy and DH giving me details, I dressed little man in green pants, a brown shirt, a construction paper green hat (that HAD to be round in the front and pointy in the back, they said) with a cardboard shield and even a fairy, glued to one of Daddy's IBEW pins :)
I'm impressed, dammit.

Pictures to come as soon as I find the USB cable for my camera....

BTW I've added some rad Momma Bloggers to my blog roll. Stop by and see how great they are.

This post reminds me of Michelle Pfeiffer in One Fine Day. You need to post pictures with full directions for us costume-deficient mommies! I have great ideas, but am not very good at execution.

P.S. Thanks for adding me to your blogroll! I think you are pretty rad too!
