Mstr A piped up with;
"can I be a ghost* please mum?"
Shocked amazement quickly covered up by asking him if he understood he would be dressing up as a ghost, in a costume, all night?
Yep, he wants to dress up as a ghost**.
So tonight I've quickly run up a ghost costume out of the ubiquitous white sheet. My creativity is not particularly good, but I managed that much - i even made a seperate hood, so he can keep his costume on without having his head covered all night.
Now we just have to see how it goes.
*I blame the backyardigans - he loves the ghost episode:-)
**It could be because he can be a ghostly Mstr A. That's how he dresses up for re-enactment. he is still him, just a medieval him. I guess this is the same, he is still him, just a ghost him.
