*that* mum 26 October

Ever seen that kid wearing grossly inappropriate clothing at a public event and passed judgement on what kind of mother would let their kid out of the house looking like that? 

I have. Many times.

Ever been the mother of that kid and absolutely sure that all the mothers are gonna be judging you?

I have. 

And it was the whole school concert.
And of course she was standing dead centre of the very front row...

I swear she WAS wearing shorts under there...

And they looked much longer before she hitched them up to give the illusion that she wasn't wearing shorts as she thinks she looks cuter that way.

And she eats lots of vegetables and goes to bed at a decent hour.

Just in case you were wondering...









Yup.  My commitment to Amy having sartorial freedom was sorely tested today.  Not only was she the only kid in grade 1 wearing shorts on a chilly late October morning but she was wearing shorts so short and so hitched up her bum that they were invisible.  This was her intention as she is convinced that the red frilly bit on her shirt is a built in skirt.  My insistence that bum-skimming pant-revealing skirts are not usually built into 7 year olds' clothing are falling on deaf ears.  As are my entreaties that it is a much classier look to be able to see your shorts.  Preferably quite a lot of your shorts.

Anyway, other than widespread public condemnation and humiliation it went quite well.

Both girls did really well with their pieces playing pianica and singing.  Amy had lines as well and hit her cue bang on.  Go Amy!

Meg performed first and I hadn't got the settings right on my camera yet so her pic is a bit dark:



And Amy played really well despite what must have been a very uncomfortable wedgie.
