Tuesday was twin day, but she didn't think that concept was so funny.
Weds was "Wacky Hair Day", which she had a BLAST with.
Today was "Hawaiian Day", so yesterday after school I took her to a Party City to find Hawaiian stuff to wear.
She found flowered bracelets and hair clips, but was FASCINATED by the grass skirts. There were two types available, one grass, and the other strands of silk leaves. She chose the one made with silk leaves.
This morning we put all the hawaiian garb in her bag, with instructions that she was only to put it on once she got to school. In the midst of packing, some of the strands of leaves fell off, which I set them on the table to throw away later.
Only the dogs go to them first, which I realized when there were silk leaves all over the living room. As I picked them up quick before the puppy ate any, I suddenly had a flash of recognition. These were not just any old leaf shape. No, these were way better. Do you recognize the shape?
"Oh yeah, she has it on now. She's been hula dancing all day!"
"Well...umm...if she's lost any pieces, you might want to put them in a brown paper bag or something."
"Why? Do you need them back?"
"Umm...no...but...ummm...you might want to go take a close look at the leaves."
She set the phone down, and seconds later I heard hysterical laughter.
So there ya have it folks. I sent my kid to school wearing a skirt made of marijuana leaves. First the bike, now this. I really AM the coolest mom in school!!!
