He wanted to dress up like Jake from Jake and the Neverland Pirates. He gathered Woody slippers, a white shirt and his sister's Awanas Cubby's vest. He turned it inside out and found a bandana.
He looked adorable. I mean, tough like a pirate. Then, he claimed a box and I made a mast for his ship. He created a map and a flag for his mast.
He woke up this morning and put this exact outfit on again. I was having a hard time convincing him that it wasn't a good idea to wear this to Preschool. His big sister knew the right words, though.
She said, "You should not wear this to school. Wear your Spiderman jacket to school and save Jake for when you get home. It makes it more magical." Because she is wise and a big kid, he trusted her words.
He also wants to play pirates with Maggie this afternoon and wants to sleep in his cardboard box ship tonight. Maybe Maggie can help me convince him that it wouldn't be a good idea.
He reminds me of another cutie. This is my brother in 1987. He was pretending to be Peter Pan. I love that his shirt is on backwards.
