My friend Corbi is getting married in November. I am going to be a bridesmaid and Ian and Claudia will be making their debut as the ring bearer and the flower girl.
This weekend Claudia and I went and tried on dresses. We had a blast. It was our first real mother/daughter trying on dresses shopping trip. She spun around in the dresses and told me she looked beautiful and pulled the skirts up over her head so that all of the other future brides could see her princess underpants.
I, of course, did what any blogging mother would do and took 15 pictures of her with my cell phone.
Here is the thing that makes this whole story of any interest to you guys.
Ian is convinced that he has to wear a bear costume.
He thinks he is going to be the ring bear.
I can’t seem to convince him otherwise.
One time, about a year and a half ago I saw a cartoon where the kid (maybe it was Arthur or Little Bear I really can’t remember) was going to be a ring bearer and he thought he had to wear a bear suit, but when we saw this episode Ian would not have even been two years old yet, so I’m not sure if that is where he even got this idea.
Either way, how do you explain to someone who can’t read and apparently cannot hear the difference between bear and bear-er no matter how many times you try to explain it.
Also, do you think Corbi and Dan would mind if Ian wore a bear costume? The wedding is only a few days after Halloween. I’m pretty sure I could get my hands on one fairly easily.
