Can a 5 year old dress as a boy?


Yesterday Reagan comes to me and says:
"Mom, I need to dress up as a boy tomorrow"

I question:
"How come?"


Reagan:
"Well, mom...Kastle (a boy she has a crush on...) doesn't want to play with me.
He only wants to play with boys...so if I dress up as a boy then he will want to play with me."

I said:
"Okay...whatever"

The next morning she woke up and the first thing out of her mouth:
"Mom, I don't have any boy clothes...what can I wear?"

Oh Jeez!!!

I told her to wear some jeans, and I would get her a shirt from the DI pile that Kaleb can't wear anymore. She then proceeded to tell me that we needed to put her hair into a baseball cap.
She is convinced that Kastle will believe she is a boy.
And then he will play with her...

We put her hair in a ponytail and then put the hat on...
She looked in the mirror and then said,
"Mom...I still look like a girl"
My only response was,
"Well you are a girl"

She makes me laugh...and she is determined to wear this costume to capture a boy's heart.
How many times will it take before she understands that she needs
FRIENDS not BOYFRIENDS?

I am in for a doozie!

Action!




We ALWAYS have a lot of action and drama going on our "stage"....this week Reagan got her costumes for her dance class...and of course we needed to try on every one and then do a dance in them.
Kaleb: is working on a project for school....I swear HIS mind is SO creative. They are doing interactive book reports every month and he read "The Little's" this month and decided he would create a bow and arrow plus carrier for the arrows because that is what "The Little's" use to fight off the mouse in their house. So is bow is made up of PVC pipe and rubber bands...the carrier is craft paper and part of a coke box...and now he has constructed arrows out of wire and paper. REALLY?

Neal is up to his eyeballs in those DAMN Yankees....I mean directing, producing, set building, costume supervising...etc...the show DAMN Yankees for his High School American Fork. His school also entered a contest to hopefully win money and tickets for the show Legally Blonde that is touring hear at the Capital Theatre.

Me? I'm crafting like crazy....watching Studio 5 gives me so many ideas I don't know what to do with.... I LOVE it! Teaching, cleaning, thinking about exercising, counseling, chauffeuring, cooking, creating, cleaning, working, and loving!
