Just call me Mama Bee  

Saturday, January 26, 2008

Here's my first photo attempt. This is me and Paige, Halloween 2007. Just call us the Bee Girls. LOL. Paige had been so into Ariel that I picked out a mermaid costume for her at Toys R Us. She tried it on in the store and told me she liked it and would wear it, even though she'd also liked the bee costume. When we got it home and I tried to get her to wear it, she told me no, that she wanted the bee costume, which I of course didn't like because I thought it was kind of ugly. But, being the sucker...I mean, great mom...that I am, I returned it and got the bee costume.

Since I'm a teacher, I bought a costume for me to wear to school for the school's Halloween parade. On Halloween, the speech therapist came into the room and put on this bee costume to show my kids. I asked her if she needed it for the evening, or if I could borrow it. I told her I had a little bee at home who'd be so excited if I was a Mama Bee. So, she let me borrow it. I came home and quickly put it on in the kitchen while she was in the living room. When I called her in to see me, she was SO excited! That evening we took her to the mall for trick or treating (many of the stores give out candy and stickers and whatnot.) Her crazy...I mean, great mom...wore this costume around the mall with her. It was funny, people kept saying, "Aww, look at the bees." There was a new photo place in the mall, and they were offering free 5x7's of kids in their costumes. Advertising genius, I tell you. So of course we went in. While we were in line, Paige started to tell me she was "all done" with the wings. I told her she wasn't - not until after the picture!

So now you know what a crazy mom I am - and have photographic evidence!

    You are a brave and great mom. I know your daughter loved that but I do not think I could walk around the mall in a bee costume. But I know that is something she will always remember. This post really made me smile.
    Also, thanks for visiting my blog, you asked how old my kids were, they are 2,4,6, and 8. At least for another week then it is going to be 2,5,6 and 8. Nice to meet you and I will be back.

    Thanks for the nice comments Jenn. I'm glad to have you visit - I have been really, really enjoying your blog. By the way, I don't think I'm brave - I think I might just be a little goofy. LOL

    Absolutely adorable! Cutest bees I'd ever want to see!

    It looks like you are an elementary teacher? (Better you than me, I say!) Since you are self-described "crazy," I'm guessing you are an EBD teacher (emotional behavioral disabilities)??

    Thanks for checking out my site today :) I'll be back, too!

    Hello Mrs. .4444 - thanks for coming to visit. I really enjoyed your blog. I am not an EDBD teacher - although I did interview for such a position this past fall. I actually work with severely handicapped students with mutliple disabilities. All of my students are in wheelchairs, eat through feeding tube, are non-verbal, and are very medically involved. I have three nurses who work in my classroom as well. But I love my kids and I love what I do...just not all the paperwork and meetings!

    I hope you come back and visit again. It was nice to "meet" you.

    Too cute! I love the picture, and it sounds like so much fun to dress up with the kiddies.

    This past Halloween was Little Bit's first "real" Halloween and we did the mall thing, too...she was the cutest ballerina there! But I had just given birth to my second baby one week earlier and was in no mood to don a costume and whirl in and out of the stores with her. Next year should be a blast with both of them though!

    Thanks for stopping by my blog!
