Nicole feels The current mood of nacwolin at

It’s Spirit Week at K’s school this week. You know, that week when kids are encouraged to dress goofy or in accord with some theme. A lot of fun for the kiddos, but often (I now realize) a hassle for parents trying to help gather together formal wear that is still school-appropriate or that perfect 70’s outfit.

(Which, by the way, why choose that decade? Don’t they all already dress like that, just revamped a bit? One word: ponchos.)

Tomorrow is “Famous Person” day. K, in a determined effort to again extend her school night curfew, attempted to distract me last night by asking how she could dress for that day. I was not buying into it (“we have tomorrow to come up with something, honey”) and was mildly distracted when she said brightly:

“I know! I can dress up as you!”

“K, I am not a famous person.”

“You are to me!”

“You are sweet. Thanks.”

She smiled broadly.

“But you still need to go to bed now.”

So, the question is, was that a sentimental, mom-and-preteen bonding moment or an attempt to distract me further from reminding her that it was already past her bedtime?

You be the judge.

(But I think I’ll bask a little in the sweetness of it, even if I am being a bit naive.)
