to think, I probably should have guessed that DD needed to dress up today.

Its dress up day for World Book day, and my DD has gone in, in uniform, it never even occurred to me to dress her up.

Thats what the headteacher said.

Also next friday, no uniform because of red nose day.

I somehow missed this too blush

I did however click on World Book Day thread this morning.

DS2 has gone in with erm... Spongebob Pyjamas and didn't want to take a book to swap.

Thanks for the tip for next Friday, I wondered why I was being invited into his Class for tea and cake.

DD's school aren't dressing up. I nearly sent her in wearing a Snow White costume. Luckily I checked with a more organised fellow mum. YANBU.

Ours is tomorrow, for some bizarre reason. Pound to a penny some poor little sods will have got confused and spend the day feeling like prats.

Schools should tell you if they're dressing up. DCs nursery and school aren't.

Ours is tomorrow too!

DS is in sixth form and they have Rag week, so have been supposed to be in costume all week. He has come up with a different excuse each day for how wearing his normal clothes is a costume with the theme of the day.

Ours is tomorrow, thought WBD was tomorrow!

Oh gawd, I did spot the (minuscule) piece of paper in time, prepared the pirate costume, then had DS freaking out this morning because he wasn't sure he wanted to dress up. hmm We ended up having to put school, uniform in his bag just in case we'd got it wrong <sigh>

It would have kind of been easier if we hadn't realised.

I have re-read my letter (found last last) and our is definitely today. Thank goodness. Ours were to be dressed as a character from a book. I guess my DS is from the Spongebob Book.

*found last night, handed out on 27th February....

Ds2 is in jeans and t shirt. Carrying copy of Diary of a Wimpy Kid. He is Greg (I think)

He organised it himself grin

Svrider Thu 07-Mar-13 10:30:48

Our school has pyjama day for red nose on thursday 15th of March.

I can see it will end in tears!

TantrumsAndBalloons Thu 07-Mar-13 10:38:49

Greg seems to be a popular choice grin

mummytime Thu 07-Mar-13 10:48:21

LadyBigtoes I have had the child who insisted on going to school in school uniform before now, because she was sure Mum had got it wrong. Only to have a melt-down at school when she realised I hadn't. Fortunately we lived very close, so I went home and got her clothes so she could change.

Then spent 20 minutes myself in the Heads office in tears!

Tomorrow should be easier as: a) she is older and now knows she needs a costume. b) she is happy to just go through the dressing up stuff and make something up.

NotYouNaanBread Thu 07-Mar-13 10:57:30

I had no idea. I also forgot to put her in a wig (for something that required silly hair - no idea what) last week. Too many things, lucky she's only wee, so doesn't notice.

Found out at the last minute (DD's only 5, so her first time). We had a go at Horrid Henry, but couldn't agree on a jumper, so she went as Moody Margaret. Her normal clothes, and she was planning to write out a label and stick it on herself. She sellotapes labels to herself on a semi-regular basis anyway.

BumBiscuits Thu 07-Mar-13 11:24:48

My DD chose a character in school uniform. She's good like that!

DialsMavis Thu 07-Mar-13 12:20:19

We overslept this morning and forgot, DS is 10 though so in my defence he usually remembers stuff like that for me. He was going to be Wally (again) but phoned me from the bus to say he is 'a boy from the year 6 leavers yearbook' wink.
