It's here - the highly anticipated dress like a pirate day!!

Yep, that's right it is Dress Like A Pirate Day at school today!

Why you ask? Hmmmm... good question!

In fact it is the same question I posed to my oldest this morning. In response I got this look:
(Yes, I know this shot totally captures the incredible brilliance that is my oldest daughter, and while I could expound greatly on that subject we will just have to save that discussion for another post!)

So obviously, she had no idea why it was dress up like a pirate day so... we just went with it anyway.

Don't get me wrong, I am completely sure that the entire reason behind such a day was thoroughly explained buried somewhere deep within the thousands hundreds of papers that come home each week crammed into heavy backpacks. Somehow, I must have missed it.

So, this is the best we could do this morning (pre-coffee), when I remembered Ry telling me yesterday that she "must go to school dressed like a pie-wet".

I will admit that I had a brief moment of panic when we got to the bus stop and the other kids were dressed - well normal. I studied Rylee briefly and decided that I would just go with "I know... I know , but sometimes you just have to let them dress themselves. We are working on encouraging creativity right now."

But then to my relief, we were joined by two more pirates!


  1. Hilarious that she was *almost* the only pirate at the bus stop! I would've panicked a little, but you had a great comeback ready! Reminds me of the scene in Bridget Jones Diary where she goes to the garden party dresses as a playboy bunny because someone told her it was a costume party then changed the theme and didn't tell her, LOL! Thanks for stopping by my blog. My little Beauty is actually named Ryleigh (Ry-lee) in my real life. Sshhh... don't tell!
