sticker shock

June 11, 2007 at 7:28 PM

No, this is not a blog about some expensive violin or bow.

I just spent some time ordering school uniforms for my soon-to-be-in-kindergarten older daughter. After completing my order, I realized I still has to order blouses to go with the jumpers. Many $$$ later, I had to still order plain black loafers and plain white tennis shoes. I still need to get a belt, but since she never wears them, I have no idea what size to get. While matching up navys and plaids to the appropriate design, I couldn't help but reminisce about the morning chaos in my house as a kid. There were six of us, always trying to find the lovely little snap ties that completed our uniforms. Girls only had 1 uniform choice-a navy jumper with white blouse and white socks. If it was really cold, we got to wear pants under our jumper (no choice of actually wearing pants by themselves). I was girl #4, so I am sure my uniforms were well worn by the time they got to me. Next up is ordering leotards for pre-ballet (for both girls). And if anyone can clue me in on to put hair in a bun (and actually get it to stay) please let me know!

Just to add to the fun, a hunk of metal just fell off my Subaru wagon. And the power supply to my husband's computer just got fried.

My daughter didn't need a bun in pre-ballet, just a pony-tail or French braid to keep the hair out of her face.
