So this year, I was expecting something equally feminine and sweet. When Lucy came home with the recital costume that I shelled out $125 for, I was, um, well, a little surprised. I tried to be supportive and outwardly positive but I knew that I would not be getting any Christmas card shots this year.
When you go to a recital you expect to see this...
But the Mayo girls showed up in this...
As the Mayo girls walked into the foyer, I noticed the other moms pull their princesses closer to them. I chuckled to myself. I wanted to yell out "North Side" or start throwing gang signs but I resisted.
I also heard someone say "minecraft" as we were walking in. Lucy's class was dancing to a song from the Lion King called "The Lion Sleeps Tonight" but I still didn't really get the costume.
This is sweet little Anna with her buddy Emma Jane. The costumes look a little better without the camo overlay. And here is Lucy with her teacher.
