Yesterday, my classroom aide gave me a costume idea that was way better than mine. “You should be one of your puppets,” she said. “You should be Kathy the Kangaroo because she has a baby in her pouch!” (Did I mention I am 39-and-a-half weeks pregnant?) So last night I whipped up a joey and a pair of ears using the same felt I use to make my finger puppets. My students knew who I was right away, of course, but everyone else thought I was a bunny. Come on, people, I’ve got a baby in my pouch! (Maybe that’s just my pregnancy crankiness coming out!) In any case, Happy Halloween from Kathy the Kangaroo and her baby joey, Kia!
