#Repost @SadayaPaige: "Hi fairies!!! ... Geriatrics Day at Bug’s school which means she has to dress up like a grandma/ grandpa.

How did she do? She’s wearing her Khmer sarong pants Yey Yey sewed for her, a bit oversized cardigan, a gray wig, some non- prescription glasses, and pearl jewelry- and of course, rocking her cane!

We hope you all have a fabulous day!

Stay magical 🧚🏼‍♀️💕"

She has her mobility cane in one hand and is holding the small of her back with the other. After she says, "Enjoy!," she does a funky little grandma dance, then the camera cuts to footage and photos of her at school in costume.
