The Seasoned Performers) came to read to the children. On Tuesday, it was Hat Day. AJ wore her snowman hat.
On Wednesday, it was Wacky Sock Day. AJ wore mismatched socks as she has each time this holiday has come up. But this time, we decided to up our game. In fact, AJ got so excited she woke up at 5:45 AM! Good grief.
First, she decided that two socks would be gloves. We informed her they'd have to come off as soon as she got in the school.
This brought back memories of our childhood, when it always seemed to snow or get cold on the one day we couldn't find mittens or gloves, so we ended up just using socks on our hands. I don't remember if I ever told AJ about this.
She surprised us, though, by calling this improvisation of socks-on-hands "Mississippi Gloves." She claims this was an original thought. I proclaim it brilliant, but with apologies to my friends from Mississippi.
Next, she put her hair in pigtails and tied it with mismatched socks as ribbons. That one was my idea.
Finally, we made a sock scarf by safety-pinning several different socks to each other. I will admit to having seen this on Pinterest. She looked smashing.
This is the only photo I thought to take, waiting in the drop-off line that morning.
I hope your day is wacky in a good way.
