superman gets super stuck

One of the trials and tribulations of being a little brother with a big sister who has no sisters to play with is that you get co-opted into playing dress-ups. This time, Lizzzy dressed Andy in the fetching combination of a superman top and some clown pants. But what happens when you don't want to play dress-ups any more? Here's how it goes:

Okay, okay, I can do this ...

All I have to do is get this arm out of here...

Done! Now for the other arm...

Come on! Out of there! You can do it!

Oh, heck.

Ah, yes, I've got it now, I've just got to pull it down a little ...

A little bit more ...

Nearly there ...

Oh, heck.

Maybe if I pull it up this way ...

Hang on a minute, what's that? My belly button! There's all kinds of interesting things inside this suit if you stop to look!

Aaargh! Get me OUT of here!

Oh, heck.

At which point we took pity on poor old Andy and removed him from the straitjacket.

How funny. Reminds me of the trials and tribulations faced by my brother, who was an only boy amongst three sisters. We have photos of him dressed up as Princess Diana (it was the early eighties)!

My kids had a chicken suit they loved, it's always fun to lay an egg! My son is quite keen on dressing up as a knight, although it frustrates him that my daughter is so rarely eager to play the dragon for slaying (not surprisingly).

Love Virginia.
