So this is the Princess this morning on her way to school - dressed like Mary, she says. No other biblical character will do although Princes Esther was a thought.Cute, I hear you say. They are all dressed like people form the Bible today and they are having a foods from the Bible and Easter meal today. Great idea and I really support it - apart from the fact that we got the note asking us to dress them and send a plate of Biblical foods (ie figs, pomegranate, pita bread, grapes etc) to school when I picked her up at 4:45 yesterday afternoon after I have been to the shops.
This is really the first time that her school have had me upset due to late planning. It shows no consideration towards working moms and every mom that picked up her kids yesterday afternoon commented on the late notice.
Well, I decided not to buy stuff and to make do with what I have at home - she dressed in a tunic of mine and a kikoi for a scarf. For the meal, I managed to dig our some dates and I had olives and sugared figs in the fridge. And really, this has to do. If they expect more, gosh, give us a bit of notice. Even the morning would have been fine.
