Ode to Easter in public!!


Ted and I put Ari on a plane this morning, bound for New Hampshire. She's been so homesick that we thought we'd better get her a nice little "happy" and send her home for a quick weekend to see her "people". I had the task of getting four kids up, dressed, fed, lunched, snacked, spit shined and hair doo-ed and out the door by 8:00. All was well until Indy informed me that I needed to get ut of the car at her school and go and sign up in her class to be guest reader next month. Now normally this would NOT be a problem but today... not so good. I was in my ode-to-Easter out fit of green Juicy sweat pants, green tank top and a hot pink Juicy hoodie and for the topper??? NO BRA!! I tried to get out of it but she threw me that big sad puppy dog look and threw some tears in just to seal the deal so out I went across the playground and into the first grade class. The teacher took one look at me and "knew". I said it was her fault that I had to get out of the car like this because she didn't email me back when I requested a date. She laughed and laughed even harder when I informed her that I was even "sans-bra" I said "ha-ha" now sign me up so I can get the heck outta here before the whole school sees me.
I'm home now and taking a break before I have to make 6 beds, and clean the kitchen up from this morning's breakfast massacre. Have a great day!!

That's so funny. I drive Eric to school every morning in my pj's, sometimes my slippers too, and I just think, "oh please let me not get into an accident or run out of gas and make me have to get out of the car." One morning while dropping off E at school I ran into my friend, who was dropping off her son and we were laughing about or attire. Turns out SHE had on a bathrobe only, and slippers. That's it. Naked underneath.

And you were embarrassed to be bra-less?

P.S. Love the photo. LOL
