Today Barney wanted to be a pirate. He loves dressing up and has the biggest box full of dressing up clothes. We made a sort of make shift pirate ship, which wasn't very good as it was almost bedtime and time was short. It was basically an old cot mattress to sit on, with a colander for a steering wheel, and a bath wrack as a canon! He also stole his sisters beanie Parrot, who sat on his shoulder. We made this video.
I had to take a ton of photos of him in his costume. Here are just a few of them. After about 20 shots he piped up with "Mummy, can you tell I've been watching America's Next Top Model?" Haha.
I love playing with Barney. He's such good craic.
He went to sleep in his pirate costume tonight!
