Wacky Wednesday

This week, Dylan's school has been celebrating Read Across America week. Each day, they have a special Dr. Seuss theme. Dylan has been having a fun week, considering how much he loves to read!

Monday was "Fox In Sox" Day. The kids were supposed to wear the craziest socks they had to school. That may be easy for a girl, but not so much for a boy. Dylan's socks are rather plain! The only solution I had was to put 2 different colored socks on him!

The next day was a bit trickier. The theme was "Oh the Places We Will Go." The kids had to wear a shirt from somewhere they've been. We didn't have anything! I'm not a fan of souvenir shirts, so I just don't buy them. This is all I could come up with:

Now, I realize we live just miles out of Pittsburgh. But he has been there. So technically, it worked! I'm just going to keep telling myself that! ;)

Today was a no brainer. Even I couldn't mess this one up! The theme was "Wacky Wednesday" and the kids wore their shirts backwards.

I can't mess tomorrow's theme up, either. It's "One Fish Two Fish Red Fish Blue Fish" and the kids are supposed to wear their favorite color or number. Definitely easy! Now, I just have to find a crazy hat for Friday!

Speaking of Wacky Wednesday, I can't believe Lexie wore pants! Willingly! Okay, so maybe not completely willingly. She threw the I-have-to-wear-a-dress-or-skirt argument at me, and was adamant about it, until I told her she'd look just like me in her jeans and sweater. She pondered that, and moments later, I had a mini-me. A very grown up mini-me.

With that, I'm off to read a huge stack of Dr. Seuss books to my kiddos!

  1. It is so funny to read about Lexie not wearing pants, because it is like pulling teeth to get Ava to wear pants as well. Every morning she gets up and the first thing she asks is "What's the weather like?" It is so funny!

  2. I am such an underachiever when it comes to school stuff like this. My poor kids. Remember the "wolf" costume from last year? Ugh. I should hire a creative mommy for these kinds of things!!! You did great!

  5. The whole month of March is Dr. Seuss at both our school and daycare. Tomorrow is PJ day for Buster and Buddy has "Rockstar" day. Yeah, that's a fun one. Good thing we have a shirt that says "Rock on" with guitars on it.
