And let me just be very clear, before you go off on me, that that's not because I don't think teachers in general should be infinitely more appreciated, because, oh my God, talk about the most undervalued, overworked, grotesquely underpaid, most influential, and yet least revered job in America.
BUT because it's one of those forced acknowledgement things, I just abhor it. It's right up there with what Mother's Day is becoming for me. I mean, what about the other 364 days of the year that I'm a mother? Don't we deserve any acknowledgement or appreciation then? I know I'd like a random breakfast in bed in, I don't know, November, just because it's chilly. Soooooo...when my kids' teachers are awesome, we do everything we can to make sure they know it. Little things here and there, extra volunteering time, pushing the kids just a little harder to be leaders and help their teachers out.
But that's not what this post is about, so let's just get to the goofy pictures, right? So, okay, besides the additional annoyances of having to get everyone up extra early so we could get dressed and do hair, my two favorite days of the week were, not surprisingly, 80s Day, and, thoroughly shocking, Disney Day.

About 80s Day, they first asked if I was ALIVE WAY BACK THEN?!?!? And then, once I'd recovered from that mild aneurysm and had them all decked out and shiny, they managed to easily bring me to complete tears of joy when they both said that they wanted to dress like this every day from now on. :)
It was a totally rad moment, dude. Like, fer sure.
