The program always takes place first thing in the morning and the kids are allowed to have a play day afterwards if they choose to remain at school. My boys all wanted to stay and hang out with friends so I packed each of them some ratty clothes to change in to since I obviously dressed them decently for their presentations.
Really, I did try to dress them well. Give me that much credit.
So, imagine my surprise when Boy 3 comes marching in the gymnasium wearing this:
Apparently the kid decided it would be perfectly acceptable to wear a backward baseball cap and funky t-shirt during the program so he changed his clothes twelve minutes after he got to school. I could scarce watch him walk across the floor for worrying about all the parents who were surely asking themselves who the Loser Mom was who would dress her kid like a Little Rascal on Awards Day.
If only there were a prize for Moms Who Are Forever Being Scammed By Their 8-Year-Olds.
Oh I would totally win....
