Pink Ladies.... Another Creative Triumph...




Tonight is the annual school family dance night... uh yes another thing to get me in a tizz right. So Super Mom here didn't even give it another thought until 5pm when I was picking her up after work, I mentioned the sock hop and wonderful friend Madi suggested she borrow her Poodle skirt. Much hunting through the Aladdin's Cave of all things Johnson Kids and no sign of the poodle skirt, by this time it's 5.26 (according to my truck so it was really 5.29). They really don't ever throw anything away however on this occasion may have sold said poodle skirt. OK so what now... what could Syd have in her closet that is remotely Rock and Roll 50's esque????




Got it... in a box way at the top of her closet is a pink pleather jacket just ripe for the words "Pink Ladies" to be artfully placed on the back. Add some black leggings... of course everyone from the age of two to ninety five has a pair of these right... a little shirt and a scarf in her hair and VOILA!!!! We have ourselves a real nice Frenchie. What to do about shoes???? Sydney has watched Grease with me and immediately knew that her little Keds that she wears to baton would be perfect!!!! She's inspiring.




So at 6.05pm she's ready to walk out the door and be the hottest pink lady at the sock hop.....she asked me what time it started... I told her 6pm...her reply?? "Good, we'll be fashionably late!!". Now that's my girl!!!!

I asked her where she got her cool jacket and she said "It's really old." I'm so impressed that you made it like 20 minutes before the dance. You go girl!!
