wacky wednesday

After a wacky day at school
This week, Finn’s preschool had their first “Wacky Wednesday.” The mission this week was to wear your fav sports team t-shirt or jersey. I mean we are talking 3 year olds here, how many actual jerseys and such can there be?

As soon as I heard the mission, I was on the case. I knew exactly what I wanted her to wear. She was going to look....well.....perfect. You know me, I am nothing if not, hmmmmm, how can I word this - a perfectionist. Perfect is my middle name. Not in the scary “Toddlers and Tiaras” or ”Dance Moms” sort of way, but just in the “I WANT PERFECTION!(I mean, as much as possible)” sort of way. I admit it and wear my badge proudly.

I started with her cheerleading dress that she wore for halloween. And not just the uniform, but the whole 9. The leg warmers, the tights, 2 pigtails, all of it.

Charles, on the other hand, is not a perfectionist.  He would have been content with just not dressing her up at all. But, at my insistence, he agreed to the uniform with jeans under it, no leg warmers, no pigtails, just the uniform and jeans. I, obviously, was not going to give in. He asked Finn, hoping for a vote on his side of the board, but her vote was for tights etc. as well. Two against one - I guess her precious smile pushed him over the edge, because, next thing I knew, he was begrudgingly making his way up he stairs to look for some tights.

Eventually, he did succeed in finding the tights, and with her little leg warmers and pigtails, he couldn’t help but smile. She was adorable. She kept walking around the house exclaiming, “Wacky Wednesday!” of course having no idea what that meant other than the fact that she got to dress up - and, after all, that’s all any girl wants, right? To dress up......
