Seriously, why can’t he just be a firefighter?!! “But mommy! I want to be a firetruck!” How can I say no? OK, challenge accepted. Hopefully the hubby will help out, he’s not keen on it. “Just buy him a firefighter outfit, I don’t want to make anything.” Good thing for the boy, I love a challenge, plus I like to upcycle when I can. Thanks to Amazon, I’ve hoarded a closet full of cardboard.
Like the engineer that I was before I became a stay at home mom, I built a scaled down prototype. The prototype looks like a firetruck right? Imagine that it’s red! Well, hopefully the finished product will resemble a firetruck more. l need 1 cardboard box and some extra cardboard to make the front of the truck. I’ll need some red paint, some construction paper to make the panels and ladder, a swim noodle for the hose, Styrofoam box filler for bumpers, some sort of straps, and lots of packaging tape. Think I can pull it off? We’ll see, I’ve got about 2 weeks time…. better get started!
What about the baby? What should the baby be? eh…good thing she has no opinions on that right now..most likely whatever hand me downs costume I have that fits her…. But if i have time to make one or find a used costume, she can be a Dalmatian puppy or ….. a fire hydrant!!
