First, please forgive any typos or nonsense I spout. I have an awful case of the flu. I should certainly be in bed sleeping–which I soon intend on doing, but first, I had to post this. It was just too funny not to.
My kids’ school does an annual celebration of the 100th day of school where they have a party literally all day long (where was this when I was a kid???).
Anyway, both boys were asked to wear 100 items on their clothes. My oldest son wanted to wear 100 clothes pins. My younger son couldn’t decide what he wanted to wear, and just before bedtime I announced, then you’re not wearing anything on your clothes (it was optional).
Of course, he got upset, but it was like 7pm and I didn’t have 100 of any other items. Then I looked to my right and had an aha moment. One that I honestly didn’t think he’d go for, but his excitement was uncontrollable, so I agreed.
And here was how he went:
If you can’t see it very well, those are 100 “signed by the author” stickers all over his shirt, and then in washable marker, I signed my name. We all thought it was clever and fun, but then again, I do have the flu so it might not have been. At least he was excited, and that’s all I care about!
Have a good day!
