One of Mabel’s best friends is Meme. Meme lives around the corner from us, the girls are only four months apart in age, I work with her mom (we are both #scimoms), and our families are friends.
Last year for the first day of school I surprised both girls with a copy of Ada Twist Scientist by Andrea Beatty and David Roberts. Both girls already had Rosie Revere Engineer and loved it, so the sequel was a good choice.
And it just so happens that Mabel looks a lot like Rosie and Meme looks a lot like Ada.
So, it seemed logical to dress them up as Rosie and Ada!
I posted about making the no-sew Rosie Revere costume here.
Ada is wearing an old Tea Collection dress and her mom did her hair.
The pictures were awesome and the girls had fun dressing up.
(I tried really hard to get Nemo to dress up as Iggy, but even bribery would not entice him to participate!)
Afterwards, the girls went out to play and the moms chatted over coffee and laughed. Fun was had by all (even Nemo).
