In which I am a bonehead mom

Each afternoon when the kids get home from school we go through the usual routine.... 

Talk about the day, get a snack, and then the kids pull out their stuff from school that day. Generally just lots of papers, and homework, with the occasional surprise thrown in. And by surprise I mean like a field trip form or something. 

But yesterday, I was in for a BIG surprise. 

Hope handed over something to me that may have sent me into what some refer to as a come-apart. 

"Um, mommy, wait till you see THIS!" (Funny she knew I was gonna trip, but she never mentioned this to me on the day it actually happened)

And here it was. STARING BACK AT ME. 


EXCUSE ME?


YOU HAD YOUR PICTURES TAKEN?


YOU HAD YOUR PICTURES TAKEN, AND I SENT YOU IN A DUCK DYNASTY SHIRT?


 YES I DID.


You know I'm not exactly fond of that shirt, but Hope likes to wear it and her daddy bought it for her, so whatever that's fine. But would I knowingly send my little girl to school on picture day in it? NEVER.

In my defense picture day was after we had been out for a week of snow. So I think my ignorance is somewhat justified. And other moms said they had no clue either, which makes me feel a little better. I think.

Oh and Pierce also had his picture taken. Not near as impressive as the DD shirt, BUT...



And now I MUST order some of these.

As proof that I make boneheaded moves as a mom, and proof that Hope is cute in ANYTHING that she wears. Even a Duck Dynasty t-shirt.

You must order these and not get re-takes. It's awesome on so many levels and wedding slide show material.
