On Friday it was Dress Like Your Hero day at the school.
Natalie was immediately like, “I’m going as Rapunzel!”
I knew most people would dress up like their military parents. And yes, Tom is Natalie’s hero. But we didn’t have a mini uniform anyway. If I were crafty, maybe I could have made one. As it is, I am not.
So Rapunzel it was.
Of course in the morning Tommy was like, “Rapunzel isn’t a hero.”
Natalie got red in the face and screamed, “RAPUNZEL IS A HERO! SHE SAVED EUGENE FITZHERBERT’S LIFE!”
Tommy shook his head. “She’s not a hero.”
Natalie’s face turned purple so it matched her dress. “YES SHE IS A HERO! SHE WAS BRAVE!” And then she marched over and smacked Tommy on the arm.
“Wow, Naomi Campbell, that’s not appropriate,” I cut in. I made her apologize to Tommy, who still thought the entire thing was hilarious. He loves upsetting his sister due to her dramatics.
“She’s a hero,” Natalie sniffed, smoothing out her dress.
“She’s not,” Tommy muttered and Natalie narrowed her eyes at him and waved her hand in the air, reminding him that she knew how to use it.
Tommy wore a camo shirt to represent Tom. He refused to dress up, which was a smart move, because when we got to the school none of the older kids were in costume.
No one else dressed like a Disney princess from what I saw. There were tons of uniform clad kids and again, Natalie would have worn one had we had a mini.
I’m glad she wore what she wanted.
And, you know, I agree with her. Rapunzel DID save Flynn’s—excuse me, EUGENE’s—life. That’s heroic.
Plus, she climbed down from that tall tower. I’m afraid of heights so I’d have been like, “You know what? I think I’ll stay here. Peace,” and gone back inside.
