“If it’s your first time as a mum facing World Book Day then you might be wondering what all the fuss is about. It sounds like such a fun lovely day to encourage a love of books and reading. Doesn’t it? If you’ve been through it before then you’ll know why it brings some mums out in a rash.”
Ahhh mommy competition spans the continents.
In any case, since it was our first time the kids were all pretty excited, and I didn’t stress too much about how little prepared we actually were on the actual day. So we made the best of it, and all the kids were pleased with the results.
Cameron: Harry Potter
Eli: Sherlock Holmes
Miriam: Fancy Nancy
Simon: Fireman Sam
Unfortunately World Book Day fell on School Picture day, in a major scheduling disaster (and yes, you can pronounce that shh-eduling if you like to read my posts with a British accent.) I got a text about half-way through the morning informing me that school photo day was that day and the next. I hope no one lost their job over that one.
So the kids school photos weren’t anything spectacular, except the photo company did do sibling photos on the second day, when the kids were all dressed normally, and it turned out really great. I’ll post it here when I get my prints.
Happy [Belated] World Book Day everyone!
