Worst mother

I get the Worst Mother of the Year Award!!! Last week I forgot a very important day in a scholars life. You see, Campbell usually goes to school with the perfect bow with the perfect dress or skirt. Hardly ever in pants as I just love to dress her up and want her to be in girly stuff until of course her "will" decides that she "isn't" going to wear what mommy wants. So last Thursday I decide to send Campbell to School in the cute little pumpkin shirt and candy cane pants (yes pants but they were too yummy to pass up.) since they were not allowed to wear costumes. She looked really cute!

It was kinda warm so I decided to put her hair up in a pony tail. I was trying to find the perfect bow but she had her own mind set on two tiny tiny bows that she found while we were looking through all the bows. She kept saying "these, these." So mommy caved.

I drop her off noticing all the bows and cute dresses. NONE of which were Halloween festive like in the days prior. But we go about the drop off process.

Than right on time I arrive for pick up. The teacher is saying good bye and says to her "you had the prettiest smile for the school photo today." WHAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I look sharply at the teacher and say...."school photos were today?" hoping she was going to say no when the pit in my stomach shouted "yes today dummy!" She smiled sweetly at me and said "yes." I about died!! I started rambling about how I forgot and couldn't believe it. The teacher politely said to me "well she'll have a pretty pumpkin in her head shot." I was DYING!!!!

Her first school picture and I sent her to school looking like this!

"To the Academy of Worst Mothers, I sadly accept this award."

Campbell I pledge not to make this a habit of forgetting those all so important scholarly moments. XO.

She looked very cute. And you are not the worst mother, unless her hair was not combed and she had a dirty face which is not the case. Love you, mom
