Recently, Bunny has started getting up ridiculously early (7am) on school days. I come downstairs to find her half-ready for school and watching tele. Tele which was always banned in the mornings, until she started getting up early. I figured that at six years old, she is old enough to get herself dressed for school. Her lovely daddy makes her packed lunch and I get the twins ready.
However, it’s not until she gets to the school playground, or sometimes not even until she gets home in the afternoon, that we discover her major school uniform errors!
Here are the top five from recent weeks…
The day Bunny came home from school wearing a pair of knickers which didn’t belong to her. When we asked her why she was wearing somebody else’s knickers she said, “because I didn’t have any on”.
2. Silly socks
As she couldn’t find her clean tights, she wore socks to school. As we marched into the playground I noticed… One sock was a short, white, plain ankle sock. The other… a cream, knee-high sock with pink ribbons down the back.
3. Dirty shirty
On picking Bunny up from school, Jonny noticed she had gone to school in the shirt from the day before… which was COVERED in chocolate stains, all down the front.
4. Big black boots
Having “misplaced” her school shoes AND the back up pair, Bunny had to go to school in knee-high patent black boots!
5. The Late Look
This one consists of the wrong colour or type of tights, a grubby shirt, a cat-hair-covered skirt, whichever shoes she can find, hair down and no cardigan (because she always leaves it at school)!
It seems I’m going to have to start supervising her clothing choices. She always has clean uniform folded on her shelf, she just chooses to go with her own quirky 6 year old style instead!
We won’t go into detail about the time I remembered (in the school playground) that I was still wearing my slippers!
