Humpis Day

as my friend Dave would call it.

Abs attends a school where you have to wear a uniform. This morning she told me that because it was the award ceremony she could wear her own clothes. Sounded plausible and I recall reading somewhere about that. She wants to wear an elaborate flower girl dress that her sister wore in my cousin's wedding. Big. Pink. Flowery. Billowy. The dress of all dresses. I told her she had no shoes to match and she countered with the fact that her pink cowboy boots would look perfect.

I couldn't remember if she had PE, so I told her no and made her pick something more sensible. Abs was so worried she was going to be underdressed for the awards ceremony.

I got an email from her teacher that said that her girls (3) must have conspired because they showed up in dresses. One was wearing a flashy red dress, obviously from Christmas. Poor Abs was there in her sensible jeans and sensible shirt.

Want to know what today was? Class picture day!!! Those three girls would have been there in the most outrageous dresses they could find. I could just imagine Abs in a sea of uniforms, glowing pink right in the middle. Maybe I should have sent her in pink?

The teacher was amused thank goodness. Class picture was taken. Tomorrow is free dress and the awards ceremony.....she has music so her teacher said that if she wanted to wear the pink dress, it was okay. :) Abs will be delighted to hear that!
