That´s pretty much the whole reason I wanted to have a little boy--to paint a mustache on his face for Independence Day.
Joey liked the mustache, and he was surprisingly open to wearing his sandals. But he hated the serape and refused to wear it. I packed it along with him, and send him to school in his khakis, sandals, mustache and red "Made in Mexico" T-shirt.
|Just imagine him with a mustache--that´s exactly how I sent him to school.|
Imagine my surprise when I show up at the program for the parents and he´s dressed like this!
It turns out, he´s a good deal less adamant about having his own way when he´s at school. Or Maestra Mary´s Indian costume was a good deal cooler than mine. Either way, he wasn´t the only kid in his class wearing everyday clothes.
