Old Ollie


Today was dress up like an old person day at Ollie's school.  He's telling kids to "GET OUTTA MY YARD."  My daughter says he walked in to school with a shaky leg and was really playing it up.  They painted Cool Old Dude on his cup and that is a pill carrier in his front pocket and he has a wadded up cross word puzzle in his back pocket. He loves being a ham and I wish I could see him trying to sit still in class all day.  My sweet six year old Oliver.

  1. That's fabulous get-up - he really looks the part! Bet he's a fun kid to spend time with.
    Hope you're doing OK my dear.

    1. He is a mess Mary. Sweet as pie, but we also call him Ollie the Destroyer, as he is so impulsive. I am good. Have gotten over the shock and am ready to take the bitter pill. Thank you.

    1. He wants to use it for Halloween Monique. He's always been the skinniest little thing and hasn't lost any teeth, but one is wiggly. His teacher has already had to tuck up his 'pot belly' and he lost his mustache in PE. How I would have loved to see his shake a leg walk into school this morning. He is a sweetie pie.

  4. What a brilliant costume Donna - and what a brilliant interpretation of the character by that young man. Surely destined to be an actor when he grows up

    1. Oh Pat, I don't know what that boy will become. Something where he can talk non-stop. He is a chatterbox.

    1. So funny too Child. He has certainly never met a stranger - will talk your leg off, that is when he's not breaking everything in sight. And, it's always an "accident".

  6. Funny great costume. He is a born actor.
    The white socks are the best or maybe black socks and sandals ?

    cheers, parsnip

    1. Parsnip, I wish they could have found those old white patent leather loafers. Wouldn't that have been great?

  7. Wow, he is great- and only six! Don't you have another actor in the family? You can tell he really believes in himself, too!

    1. No actors, Gesbi, but I think he's a good bet. Six is such a sweet age. He still dances and acts goofy; isn't the least bit embarrassed.

  8. Wow Donna - what a great picture. This kid certainly has talent. Bet he makes Grandma proud too. Have a super day.
