Tomorrow is character-day and instead of happily planning a costume for my favorite book character I am laying out my professional outfit for my very-important-meeting on a student with people from outside our school.
Of all days to have to look professional. Life has just not been fair this week.
I can't very well go the very-important-meeting dressed as the pigeon, or Trixie, or Lily, or even The Paper-Bag Princess. I don't think anyone would take me seriously.
Any suggestions on a good children's book character who wears suit jackets and nice slacks? Miss Nelson before she turns into Viola Swamp? A teacher from Kevin Henkes books? What's not boring?
