Gooney Bird Greene?

Gooney Bird Greene? NO... Meggie!
This is the day Meg has been waiting for all. year. long.
Gooney Bird Green dress up day.
Her teacher read the books to them aloud in school and Meg has absolutely LOVED them!
I think GBG is the Pippi Longstockings of this generation- How I LOVED Pippi! I wanted to go to Villa Villekulla and hang with Tommy and Annika and Mr. Nelson!
I need to read the books and get caught up on pop culture- 2nd grade 2010 style.
Meg tells me all the time I am so out of it!

Her outfit consisted of leggins, Pants cut off at different lengths, hiking boots, a ballet tutu, underarmor, her swimming suit top, a bright shrug, different socks ( GBG doesn't feel comfortable in matching socks... I heard this all morning) and a diamond ring. Meg was so mad I didn't have long black gloves just hanging around... If she would have told me... I would have! GBG wears under wear on her head, but the teacher put the brakes on that idea. Meg was so excited and I was glad that she was loving the character from a book. Yeah reading...
ps I have read 11.5 of my 52 books this year!
I am still a bookworm and it all started with Pippi Longstocking!

I've not heard of GBG, but I, too, was a Pippi fan.

BTW - I broke down and ordered a Kindle. :) Should be here today. I'm so excited.

I think Meg looks adorable all dolled up.
