Happy New School Year...

Monday, August 30, 2010

And we're off...

Today is Sparky's first day of school... It's a half day for new "upperclassmen" and a full day for new freshman... She doesn't need to be there until noon... We have had quite a morning already... Here is a brief look at our day so far...

Sparky: "I don't know what I should wear."

Me: "What about the outfit you told me about three days ago?"

S: "I need a white tank top for it."

M: "Don't you have a new one?"

S: "I got paint on it this weekend painting my bedroom."

M: (not losing it...yet) "Why did you wear your new tank top to paint in?"

S: "I didn't know the paint would bleed through my t-shirt. Will you run to Wal-Mart and get me a clean one?"

M: "No."

S: "I'll pay for it."

M: "You'll have to work something out... You have six other new tank tops, choose one of those."

S: "They are all in colors I need white..."

M: (doing my best Tim Gunn) "Make it work..."

S: "You just want me to look like a  fool don't you?"

M: "Yep, you got me... Yes, Sparky* that was my evil plan..." (*I call her by her real name.. radical... I know..)

S: (rolls eyes... walks away)

VOICE OVER: (in my head) "Ladies and gentleman... start your engines..."

Thanks for listening,


  1. Dude-- I'm sorry about the lost tank. I can't tell you how many times I've worn nice clothes and painted something, telling myself "I'm going to be really careful-- there's no point in changing clothes."

    Only to find a drip later. And this happens over and over. I think the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over expecting different results. . .

  2. She's just stressed about starting something new. It would make anyone anxious. I'm sure whatever she decided to wear, she looked really cute! I hope she had a great day.

  3. She's not taking drama, is she? ;D

    And the tank... for me, it's always bleach. I get spots of bleach on my clothes and then try to fix it with a Sharpie.

    Truly brilliant. A fashionista I'll never be!
