Yep, it’s time for me to submit yet another entry for the Mother Of The Year Award. I think I’m the leading contender right now. And this time, I have public verification of my entry, which I think can only help my chances.
Little Miss woke up in yet another lovely mood — partly due to the fact that my mom was watching the wee ones again yesterday while I was working late and they got to bed late after my mom didn’t even try to put Little Miss down for a nap.
Getting dressed was a challenge, but we finally made it through that ordeal with just enough time to eat breakfast before her bus arrived at its new, early time. She was finally in a better mood after breakfast, so I took her picture.
There’s my cutie pie. With the horribly messy hair that I swear I brushed and put a barrette in before breakfast. Isn’t she adorable?
When she got home, I realized one small thing. Oops, I forgot to change her socks. Getting dressed was not the most pleasant experience, and she really wanted to choose her clothes, rejecting the first two outfits I selected after she had dawdled.
She did choose a cute outfit, but for socks… well, that was where I decided it wasn’t worth the battle at the time. I let her put on the socks that she’d picked out of a basket in her room and figured I’d change them before the bus came once she was more tractable.
Except the bus came about five minutes early, and — shockingly — we were running late. Instead, she went to school wearing these:
Yep, that would be a Halloween sock and a random red sock. They really are lovely with the handmade beautiful shirt from Karen, aren’t they?
Let’s get a closer view.
Oh. Yes. The red sock is a baby sock from when she wasn’t yet walking. Although she can stretch it to fit on her foot it doesn’t stay there long. It quickly starts sliding down. And the other one? That would be a Halloween sock from the Target dollar section from two years ago. It doesn’t really fit, either.
Yep, those are the socks she wore to school today. And her teachers see them because they take off their shoes when they do motor room. I can only imagine the tale going around the school today.
Yep, just chalk that up as another winning moment in my portfolio for Mother Of The Year.
