|Looks a bit like Medusa here, but at least still cute.|
|Seriously, that is what she came up with!|
Now of course since Annika was going to wear a dress to school MacKayla wanted to as well. She picked out her really nice fancy church dress to wear, I vetoed that on account of it being a nice one. I told her she could wear one of the other dresses that she had but not the one she wanted, well the water works started at that point. She went into a full crying jag because she couldn't wear a dress to school. Again I laughed (away from her of course) at the situation. In the end she wore a nice pair of jeans and a t-shirt, now that I approve of.
When I was a kid my mom would have given anything for me to wear a dress to school. I absolutely hated to wear them, still do actually. I always thought they got in the way of having fun at school. You couldn't flip on the monkey bars, you had to sit carefully on the rug and any breeze would blow your skirt up. I loved nothing more than a nice pair of jeans and a comfy t-shirt. I guess I didn't pass such on to my girls however, oh well....
