Hi ladies,

Lots of effort goes into picking a great outfit for the first day of school. Do your kids get actively involved in the selection, or do they leave it up to your vision?

Please feel free to share any pictures from your kids' first day of school.

Here's my kiddo....

Silly Boy!

All he wanted for the first day of school was an Adidas t-shirt. He said they're going to be his sponsor when he's a famous soccer player. <rolling my eyes>

No, my kids have SMOD. So its same colors of shirts/pants/shorts/capris - daily all year round, except for Christmas program, spring program and end of year program.

The dress code was put into effect after some of the Children would pick on others for not having designer labels.

My dd is 5 and she doesn't really care about what she wears for her first day. She doesn't start school for 2 more weeks.

 My kids usually pick out their own clothes.  My youngest needs a little help once in a while.

 My kids picked out their own outfits.  I will have to put pictures up when I get on my other computer.

 My neices ages 9 and 7 told me that its the most fashionable day of the school year. Your new friends will judge you by your outfits...and you know who you want to hang out with.

I was shocked. Such narrow mindedness....its sad. Even though they have uniforms...they make their statments with accessories...shoes, socks (yes even socks), Hair barretts, and jewelery.

I had a long conversation with them that night. I hope I got through to them.
