    Next year, wrap her in duct tape to keep her from squirming and she can go as the Mummy.

    I think Little Bo Peep is just tugging at her dress to get it off.

    Howtheduck, sorry, but you’re misreading it. In panel 2, where John’s balloon is voluminous, Lizzie has a smile on her face. In panel 3 she starts pulling at her hat or the back of her dress (while mom is talking), and in panel 4 she is pulling on her sleeve.

    I wonder if Mom’s today are this talented! ;-)

    Since most moms are working today, very few have the time or have learned the skills to sew. The same can be said for the dads. Most of them can’t saw a piece of wood without cutting themselves.

    I was Little Bo Peep in first grade in 1953 : )

    My dad made my wooden staff for me. (And stilts. I loved those stilts!) I didn’t have a sheep, tho. My Beagle covered in fake fleece would have been good to go, I think.

    They should take Farley, too. He IS a Sheepdog.

    “You’ll wear this costume, and LIKE IT!”

    “I’ll wear it, but I won’t like it!”

    In panel 3 she’s pulling the hat off.

    @ algurka: For working moms there are gradmas! And if grandma works too, there’s Party City!! ;o)

    It’s a cute outfit (love that little sheep under her arm!) but the way she’s fiddling with the cap and tugging on the sleeve says it’s probably too hot, too itchy, or too tight and confining and she just wants out of it now.

    A couple of years ago my smallest nephew was that age. He wore his costume all day long and when it was time to go Trick or Treating, he fell asleep for the rest of the night.

    The trick for making comfortable costumes for kids is to start with a comfortable “base.” My mom made a cute “Tigger” costume for my son. I bought orange sweat pants & shirt, then she made & sewed on a tail, and white belly. She made a hat with ears, but it wasn’t stretchy, so that wasn’t as comfortable. (I think it would have been better to use an orange stocking cap and add the ears & stripes.) I couldn’t find pants the right length, so I bought longer ones, with the elastic around the ankles. They worked well for my sons as they grew taller.
