Last week (and this week as well apparently) is color week at Kindergarten. We started the week out with a bang with both girls refusing to wear red. Orange day went much better with some creative persuasion. I got both girls to wear orange (except for the part that a kindergartener out negotiated me and although she agreed to wear orange insisted on wearing her bear hat). Yellow day included a colorful shirt with a hint of yellow print but we ate bananas for lunch so that counts. Green day they didn’t wear anything green however it was a special surprise to open Cassie’s back pack to find something green, a whole pile of dried green foliage? I’m just glad she didn’t crumple it up and put it in her Ziploc snack baggie “Well officer, it was green day.” Blue day we were all set. They had their matching BLUE soccer jersey’s on. It was literally 10 minutes before they were to get on the bus and the coup began. “I’m not wearing this!” “What? The bus is almost here, it’s too late to change, sorry sweeties!” Didn’t work. They both decided to change into some grungy summer shirt they found under their beds. Come on, I’m tryin’ here! Found out there is a whole ‘nother week of colors this week (purple, pink, black…). Are there other more important things going on in my life than caring about how color week makes me look as a mother?…yeah sure but today (purple day) both girls were wearing purple shirts AND purple shorts…I know, I’m a great mom!
