Poor Mom...

This week is Red Ribbon Week (otherwise known as "let's see if we can make mornings that much crazier for parents week") at school.  Tuesday was "Rockin' Out to the 80's" day.  I hadn't planned anything the night before and was rushing around trying to find things that looked 80's-ish for all the kids.  I helped Jesi pick an outfit and put her hair in a side ponytail.  I was thinking that she looked pretty cute, but she wasn't so sure.  She looked at herself in the mirror and asked, "How do you know so much about the 80's, Mom?  Are you sure I'm dressed correctly?"  I laughed and said, "Well, honey-- when I was your age, I was living in the 80's."

An honest-to-goodness panic stricken look came across her face.  With wide eyes, she exclaimed, "YOU had to dress like THIS?!"  She was not trying to be funny.


A few minutes later, I found a bright headband and told her to put it on.  She put it on and said, "WELL, I guess this is just a little more high-fashion now."



  1. She looks just like you at her age ;) !!!!!

  2. She looks just like you at her age ;) !!!!!

  3. I don't care what anyone says. Legwarmers will always be cool.

  4. I think she looks GREAT - but dang it makes me feel old - I was gradutating from my first police academy in ' first born in '84, then '85, then '89...Oh I'm feeling old...;)

    hugs - love you guys - and she looks mah vah lous!

    aus and co.

  5. Oh my gosh I just want to give little miss sassy pants a big old smooch! She's SO CUTE! And you did a great job coming up with 80's stuff. She looks great. (I too hate parent homework tho...with ya there.)

  6. Oh, the memories! It's funny that she was so dumb-struck by the fashion though, because everything old is new again and I see the girls dressing like that on non-80s days...the leg-warmers, the ripped's all back!
