Talent Show

Charlotte's summer program did their talent show yesterday.  It was its usual hot mess.  Nothing much to report there.  But her group was supposed to wear a "60s outfit."  What does that MEAN?  That could be poodle skirts, Jackie Kennedy, British invasion mod, or hippies at Woodstock.

Thankfully, I had 36 hours to pull this together, because MY first idea was to dress her as Emma Peel.  Someday my sense of humor is going to get me in trouble.

We decided hippy was easiest.  Naturally daddy taught her the (age) appropriate hand gestures.  This was the night before when we tried it all out.


This was the morning of, complete with hair.  The other option was leaving it down, which is very authentic - but I couldn't face the thought of the tangles.


Not bad for thirty six hours notice, if I do say so myself.
