Any sensible mum, faced with the prospect of a Roald Dahl themed non uniform day, would suggest Matilda, or Violet Beauregarde, or Miss Honey, or one of The Witches. A craft obsessed mum makes the mistake of asking her children what they would like to be.
A sensible mum, on hearing the response "We want to be baby foxes!" would then think, "Ah yes, a bit of face paint, a few whiskers, easy peasy!" A crafty mum starts to dream of fake fur and little furry ears and big bushy tails.
A sensible mum would have got to bed at a reasonable hour last night. A crafty mum stays up sewing till the small hours and still finds herself attaching poppers to belts for tails at breakfast time.
But then, a sensible mum isn't greeted by this:
and isn't serenaded on the way to school by fox barks.
I know which I'd rather be.
