Foxy pretty much wears the same thing to daycare everyday- pants and a shirt. I like to keep her legs covered so they don’t get cold. Her clothes are nice. Mostly from Carter’s and Target so she never looks like a scrub.
This morning as I dropped her off I noticed that the babies were looking particularly dapper for a Friday. Then I remembered it was picture day. Crap. Sure she was clean and clothed, but certainly not good enough for picture day. I hadn’t even brushed her hair straight.
I contemplated going back to the house and getting a dress for her to wear, but I knew I had just had her pictures taken the day before (complete with wardrobe changes) so it was really no big deal. There was just one problem…
The other parents don’t know Foxy had her pics taken the day before. I don’t want anyone thinking I’m the bad mom who doesn’t dress her child properly for picture day!
So I went back home and grabbed the cutest dress I could find. Okay, really I didn’t. I had to get to work!
I was telling a coworker about this morning and he said something very profound…
“Babs, here’s something you need to know now that you have a child in daycare. On any given day someone has to be the bad parent. Today was your turn.”
