Foto Friday #13

Betcha thought I forgot all about Foto Friday (again). But I remembered! I just couldn't find my camera...

Da Boo's school had a Backwards/Inside Out day. All the kids were encouraged to wear their clothes backwards, inside out, or both. Boo refused to wear pants backwards, frequently reminding me about her preschool teacher, who apparently had issues going to the bathroom while wearing backwards pants. She wanted to wear a skirt, but inside out. This was problematic, as most of her skirts have shorts attached underneath. So we went for the backwards skirt, inside out shirt.


And the tiara was added after school. Hey, if the crown fits...

The other night, I went to fill up my kids' nighttime water glasses and this about freaked me out:


He belongs to the Boy, one of those "grow your own" things (used to be about three inches long) that I got him as a bribe from the dollar bins at the craft store. It's been living in the kids' sink ever since...I'm beginning to wonder if maybe they aren't really brushing their teeth at night but feeding the gator instead.

Although this was "the birthday that shall not be mentioned," I did get one awesome thing:


I love it! Aunt Denise was vacationing in Washington this summer and called me from Forks*. After we finished squealing, I told her I would love her forever if she brought me back a sweatshirt. And she did! This is an authentic Forks High School sweatshirt, with the actual logo and colors, not from some little kiosk at the mall. I was thinking of wearing it to a blogger lunch I'm going to tomorrow but I think the host of the lunch might try and steal it...

P.S.
The shop did find my present...two weeks late.

P.P.S.
The Man comes home tomorrow!! HOORAY!!!

* If you don't know what I'm talking about here, then I just don't know if we can be friends anymore...or you can go here to find out.

So, I totally want to implement backwards day at work. We're doing Red Ribbon month at work, since I work at a substance abuse counseling center, and we get to wear wacky clothes and socks. YAY!

P.S. Are you coming tomorrow?

I would jump too if I saw a small dragon in my sink. :) And I clicked on that link because I didn't want to not be allowed to be a friend.

I'm so sad I missed you today at the meet and greet. Also I'm totally allowed to be your friend because I knew what it meant without clicking on the link.

Hrmmmm...wearing the sweatshirt to the premier...of course, I'll be at the midnight release and November is known to be chilly...good idea! That way hordes of teenage girls can envy me in all my huge pregnantness.

We used to have mismatch day at my elementary school, fun times...how many mismatched clashing clothing items can you put on!

P.S. Went to your link...I understand the importance of Forks now...can I be your friend now?!

P.P.S. And I have been dying to see the MOVIE...I'd so LISTEN to the books, but no one I know has them on cd...the bums!!
