My son had to do a biographical presentation this week. He had been reading biographies all month and then was to choose his favorite, dress as the character and talk as him a bit.
Though all the pictures of Johnny Appleseed show him with a pot on his head, it wasn’t gonna work with my son and his big cranium. He wanted to wear a frying pan but somehow I didn’t think his teacher would appreciate that!
Still Johnny Appleseed turned out damn cute.
And it all reminded me of when I had to give a similar presentation in the 3rd grade (my son is in 2nd). The teacher had snapped a photo of each of us to display in the classroom. I knew my parents had held onto so I begged them to uncover it.
…and they did! (though damn what a messs I am!)
My kids love it though every time I show my 5-year-old a picture from my youth she wants to know why I look like a boy .
Needless to say, Johnny is much cuter than Amelia…wouldn’t you agree?!
