Thrilling Thursday

Today is thrilling Thursday. Which meant, the girls were allowed to wear whatever wacky things they wanted to school. Mismatched, inside out, backwards. Whatever.

This morning Einey grabbed a purple shirt and khaki colored cords. I asked her what else? A t-shirt on top? Short over the pants? A tie or wacky belt? A skirt? She looked up and said "just thins, I don't want to look stupid". Um, that's the point kiddo. "Fine, I'll just wear my uniform then. We finally got her excited and she did end up with a wacky outfit. It was wackier, but she shed the tie at the last moment citing "I look like a guy". I think it was because we just told her not to lose it. She ended up with a blue pin stripped dress shirt, the khaki colored cords, a pink paisly skirt, two different colored socks and a two different sneakers.

Meenie, however fully embraced the wackiness. However, her outfit, very wacky, wasn't too off from her regular attire. She wore a blue long sleever tee, topped with a megenta horse tee shirt, jeans, an orange skirt, two different socks, two different sneakers and a head full of braids with different elastics at the end.

It wasn't long ago that Eieny didn't give what she was wearing a second thought. it just goes to show she's growing up.

I miss my little wacky girl though!

That's awesome that you can just go crazy and let the kids wear whatever they like. Gives them a little bit of independence and creativity. Sounds like they are growing up fast!
