Parenting stretches us in ways we thougt unimaginable mentally, physically, emotional, spiritually the list goes on an on. For me one way that I wasn’t really expecting to be stretched was creatively. Tonight something sparked an interest in ninjas. Well we actually have a prepetual interest in ninjas, and knights and soldiers or warriors of any kind. Two decided he wanted to be a ninja. But how?
I remembered the playsilks I had made when Two was younger. I had read somewhere that these were good toys for kids but other then the occasional cape or ghost costume I honestly wasn’t sure what to do with them. Then I had an idea. Here’s the costumes I came up with.
Even Mavis wanted to get into the act with her own sword and cape. For a solid 15 minutes I was living in fear of those wooden swords. Luckily their attention span didn’t last long.
