Last Minute...

There's no time like the.. er... last minute!
  Today is Kyrie's school Fall Party. Not halloween party - FALL party. No costumes allowed. 
Last night, when I was tucking her into bed, she said "I want to wear something fancy for the fall party". Right... because we have a closet full of fancy clothes just waiting to be worn to school! Have you noticed, that there are VERY FEW "fancy" clothes out there for this age?! I don't want rock star, preppy princess or scull & crossbones, OR tween queen for my 6 yr old! Just some cute and maybe a few fancy clothes would be great, thanks!
  Back to the FALL party. So instead of coming up with something clever for her to wear for the fall party last night, I spent a few hours finishing my long overdue photo-editing. And this morning at 6:40 I decided to come up with something clever. Her ride was supposed to be here at 7:30... wonder WHERE I picked up the "last second gene"?! (Love you, Mom!)
  But really, who needs fancy clothes ready made in the closet when you have a hand-me-down-black-dress-for-next-year, photoshop, a printer, iron-on printer paper and an iron? (I burnt it - surely the teacher won't notice the slight stench - they should have given the directions for 1/8 page - 30 sec- BEFORE the directions for more than 1/2 a page - 3 minutes - just sayin'!)
  And we have a "fancy" outfit for the fall party! She wanted pictures taken too.

And we didn't make the 7:30 "bus" - I had to take her at 8:55 - but she was still smiling. Ah, small victories. =)

Very cute!!
And I agree with the clothes issues now-days. I think I puked a little in my mouth when I saw the fishnets-under-shorts outfit in the 6-12 kids size at Target not that long ago. PUH-leaze
