Madison has her dress up box… and Jeremy and I have ours. Why? Not because we are frisky newleyweds, but because over the years, we have been invited to a few themed parties. And as a teacher, I have been involved in numerous spirit weeks. If the students aren’t into showing spirit, THIS teacher is because anything (yep, pretty much anything) beats having to dress up in teacher gear every single day! (Plus, sometimes, it lets me get to wear jeans, which is the ultimate in teacher dress down opportunities in my book!) So, today, I decided to go through this box because it was annoying me that the lid wasn’t shutting. I realized that Jeremy had put some t-shirts in there recently – you know the ones.. you don’t really wear them, but you just can’t throw them out. In some ways they “fit” – Star Wars, Men in Black – but really… he just couldn’t bear it apparently! Madison enjoyed what we unearthed…. There were wigs, glasses, cowboy holsters, numchucks (SP!!), leis, moon boots, 80s stuff, Hawaiian themes, and more. When I glanced up from putting a few things back in the box, this is what I saw..
And then, she added the Napoleon Dynamite glasses…
And for all her long hair dreams… (I think this week was more annoying than fun, maybe a wig for her birthday???)
I am sure that one day she will want to kill me for ever letting these pictures see the light of day (the evil of digital photography and the internet). But I simply couldn’t resist sharing one of the bright moments of our day. (Ellie would have wholeheartedly participated, I am sure, but she was sleeping.)
