Costume parade: Princess Aurora and a Spider

Me with Mare Bear and Little Man posing for a picture after the Costume Parade.
Today was the costume parade at my daughter's school.  I remember doing the same thing when I was in school.  It is so much fun to see all the little kids dressed up.  The Pre-Kindergartners through 2nd graders paraded around the school while the 3rd graders through 5th graders put candy in their bags.  Some of the younger sibling of students joined in on the fun too.

Dressing up can be so much fun.  Children can dress up to be anything they can imagine.  Dressing up allows children's imagination to take them anywhere they want to go.  Dressing up also allow children to pretend play which is a stage of development that preschoolers should have.  Preschooler imagine are developing and growing and Dressing up in their favorite costume aids in that development.

Mare Bear is our Princess and as you can tell from the photo above she loves to dress up as a princesses too.   As for my little Man he was a little spider.  What is more scary than a spider, nothing (at least that is what I think)!  Little Man was not sure of all the kids dresses up in their costumes.  It was the first time he has seen people dressed up in costumes.  He did not get scared or cry, but he was not to sure about he whole thing.  

This photo looks like Mare Bear is Little Miss Muffet and she was startled by a spider beside her just like the nursery rhyme my grandmother used to tell me.  All she needs is come curds and whey.
