I Love Wacky Wednesdays!!

Our school is celebrating Dr. Seuss' birthday all week with dress-up days in the elementary. Today is Wacky Wednesday, and let me tell you, it is a Slacker Mom's favorite day of the year. Here's why:

1. No need to keep nagging the kids to get out of bed. Just say, "Good morning! It's Wacky Wednesday!" and up they leap, ready to put on a fantastically fun outfit they picked out the night before.

2. No need to search for matching socks.

3. You don't have to argue with your 8-year-old-son about wearing the same boring clothes over and over. He will branch out - maybe throw something on inside out - without a word from you!

4. No need to search for matching shoes.

5. Braids and pony tails not tight and clean enough? Who cares! It's Wacky Wednesday! And while we're at it, let's just stop with one braid and put a bun on the other side of your head, 'kay?

6. Matching tops and bottoms? No worries!

7. You may just see a little smile crack from your tweenager's face....juuuuussst maybe. (If you catch her when she doesn't see you. But remember, don't expect her to walk out to the bus looking wacky. Everything is in place, and her "wacky" socks will come out only at school IF the other kids are following suit.)

a little bit of my favorite Romans 12:2 "Do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind....."

Ha ha ha! I somehow convinced Annika to wear her mismatched striped shirt and pants today! It's one of her favorite outfits and I told her yesterday that it'd be perfect for Wacky Wednesday. So she actually took my advice and wore it today. She also grabbed her dress up cloak, dog mask and something else to wear today. Wacky indeed!
