They just keep coming up with these special days that parents have to prepare for and it can be daunting to plan into an already packed schedule! Tuesday was designated as "Career Day".
Last night I laminated about the lack of career options we had in place for Charlotte - none, and decided she would just have to be a Princess. I even proposed the Princess career on Facebook and received a very favorable response.
Today we were running late - as usual - when I announced to Charlotte that she must wear her Princess dress and crown because today was career day and she was planning to be a Princess when she grows up - right? To which she said no, but she says no to everything I suggest and still does it.
We get to school and NO ONE in her class is in any type of uniform whatsoever! What's more - the teacher shouts out "Charlotte I told you to wear bright colors for Joseph day!" What?!? That was not written or announced anywhere! I respond weakly that pink is her favorite bright color and rush off to work.
Tomorrow is Water Wednesday where they will have water slides IF it does not rain. For the past 4 weeks in a row it has rained. I've now learned that NONE of the other parents dress their kids in swim gear in the morning so tomorrow I will pack her swim gear. See - I can be taught, once I know the rules.
