10th March: The Girl's class had a special 'VE Day' party to celebrate the end of a very successful topic on World War II. She insisted that she dress up as a boy....

She is just far too cute for words ... er, sorry young lad, you make a fine young man! I am noticing the juxtaposition to the sign, was that intentional mother?

Mary B said...

Bless her, I had to look twice she makes a wonderful 1940s boy too.
I can really see the likeness between The Girl and you

Mary B's comment about the likeness between her and you -that's exactly what struck me.She definitley makes a fine young man!

You've made a young tomboy very happy :-)

However, in one breath you're saying she looks just like a boy, and in the next you're saying she looks just like me?! How am I meant to take that?! ;-)

PS Amy - it *could* just be a coincidence.....!

There's not much that I can say that hasn't already been said!

Sandra said...

Goodness, doesn't she look good.

Mary B said...

You look fine Mel and it's quite alright to have a boy with features so similar to his mother. Even if that boy is really a girl in disguise ;-D

TSO is very envious - she would love to have a VE party. Being evacuated remains one of her long term ambitions.

She makes a great school-boy! I have a photo of my DS in 1940's costume, with his "gas mask box" on a string. I ransacked the charity shops in town, and found a sleeveless pullover, a suitable tie and an old-fashioned blazer - a real wool one too, which looked so authentic.
It's fun for the children to dress up as 1940's evacuees - glad The Girl enjoyed the experience. She/he looks very smart in that photo.

Now that really is dedication to the art of dressing up!
Dare I ask? Were there any boys dressing up as girls?!

humel said...

lol!! No boys as girls!

Karen said...

She is simply adorable, and standing next to one of my favorite posters.

Tracey said...

Such a wonderful outfit! It must have been fun for her to dress as the other half dress! :)
