Last week Matilda brought a letter home from school to say that her class is doing a dinosaur themed assembly in June and that she could dress up as a dinosaur or explorer. She instantly ran upstairs and grabbed this costume out of her dressing up drawer.
My mum made this costume fourteen years ago when my sister Amy was a little younger than Matilda is now. Then my sister Katy used it, and then it was passed down to Matilda. How cool is that?
What's even more awesome is that my mum found the photos of Amy wearing the dinosaur costume fourteen years ago. And crikey doesn't Matilda look just like her? When Tom showed her the pictures she thought that they were both her!
I love family hand me downs don't you? Especially hand made ones with such a history.
