Just a quickie today.
(Like you ladies out there expect anything else)
My eight-year old daughter is dressing as a Devil for Halloween this year.
We really didn't need to buy anything for her to get this look.
That reminds me, I need to return her principal's phone call....I think I heard a riot in the background.
...she brought home a paper from school that talked about the kids wearing their costumes next week.
My daughter read this aloud to us:
"Costumes representing heroes or patriotic characters are preferred, as it reinforces our theme this week of honoring our national heroes."
Patriotism and heroes.
She wasn't going to be wearing a patriotic costume...
...nor would she be dressed up as a hero.
That was until my wife decided to pipe up with this little gem:
Wife: "Well, you can tell them that the Devil is your hero."
Nice one, hon.
That should go over well.
Parenting Skill: 0
That should go over well at school.
You know...if there's anything left of it.
I'll let you know when I get off the phone with the principal.
