Day 10: I'm NOT a Ballerina!

 Day 10, Saturday: Most embarrassing moment (s). Spill.

I'm sure my mom embarrassed myself many times but I can't think of any juicy ones. But I do remember this one that stands out in my head right now. I was in the 4th grade... it was Halloween! And every since I was a baby my mom made our costumes. They were always great costumes, which is what a little kid would think! I had no idea what I wanted to be that year. I was starting to get older and cared what other people thought of me. I had three best friends, all named Stephanie, it was pretty great. This was a time before cell phones and texting, so I couldn't call and ask what they were going to be for Halloween.

My mom and I decided I would be a ballerina! I thought that was a great idea! My mom made a great little tutu for me and bought a bright pink leotard a ribbon for my hair and covered my shoes in pink satin-type material.

Well, I was apparently wearing a very revealing outfit and I was too young to realize. But everyone laughed at my outfit. After a while I actually felt naked.... And then the teacher asked who wanted to be in the costume contest, my friends said I should go, but I was like "HELL NO!" One of my friends was an indian, the other was a maid and the other one was a hippie! I have a picture somewhere.

And then school was almost out and everyone gathered at the grassy area and we saw a magic show. Well, during the magic show my mom showed up and started taking pictures and then, it gets better, the magician asks me to stand up!! OMG! NO!!! Yes! So there I was standing up infront of the whole school and everyone could see right up my tutu and my little mosquito bites! Yes, I had mosquito bites! He had me catch an imaginary bird!

Afterwards my mom took more pictures of me with my friends. I had really long legs and I was pretty thin, so that combination just made me feel so self-conscious. I will never forget it.

Hickies: Back-to-School Series #1

Every Friday in the month of September I will share a few tips for making the transition for both kids and parents a bit easier. This first one is a doozie! HICKIES! Keep reading to learn what I'm talking about.... I try to buy my girls (i have 3 school-aged daughters) two or more pairs of shoes; an active shoe, which usually has laces, and a more casual/formal shoe, which usually doesn't have laces. Which ones do they choose to wear nearly every day to school? The ones that have shoe laces! Of course my oldes daughter, who's now 13, can tie her own shoes, but the other two still need help. And let's be real, even the oldest one I find myself nagging her to tie her laces correctly, she gets sloppy in the mornings at times. Here come HICKIES to save the day!

Hate tying your kids' shoes everyday before they step out of the house? Hate stopping to tie your own shoes mid-run? HICKIES products turn any pair of sneakers into convenient, comfortable, and stylish slip-on…
