The other day, Joshie got a red poppy from school. Although all the kids in class got one, only two of them showed up at school wearing it pinned to their uniform. When I asked him what he learned about Remembrance Day, he said "to remember". What I asked what he was supposed to remember, he said "I don't know". After I told him why we wear poppies in November, he said he wanted to wear his to school.
My overactive imagination was concocting all sorts of scenarios involving the j/k class and open pins. So, I decided to remove the long pin and sew on a safety pin.

DIY: Remembrance Day Poppy Conversion
It took me less than 5 minutes to do but will ease my mind today when he's at school.
Although Remembrance Day falls on the weekend, we will be observing a moment of silence at home (well, as silent as two boys can be...)
