My Kid Is Going to Hogwarts

Not really……but take a look at her school uniform:

I’m not sure how I feel about uniforms yet. I’m all over the board.

My first reaction:
Awww! What a cute little Harry Potter character she is!

My second reaction:
It looks kind of itchy.

Right now my daughter is ecstatic about wearing a uniform. It’s like this huge right of passage to Kindergarten.  She told the uniform store owner: see this patch? it means I don’t have to nap anymore.

One of my studio employees has a self imposed uniform because she says it’s easier.  White painters pants, a white polo and white hat. Every day.

I have a uniform….it’s called yoga pants, flip flops and a tank top. I even wear it to church on occasion.

The uniform will definitely make our mornings easier.

The uniforms are super reasonable in price: $12 a shirt, $15 a skirt….that’s hard to beat.

I think it stinks that she has to wear poly/cotton on 110 degree days.

I’ll be sad that it takes away from my daughter’s creative expression.

I hope it won’t be a problem for the school if we dye her hair pink.


I’m new at this. My opinion of uniforms was formed from the movie Girl’s Just Wanna Have Fun.

So here’s what I want to know…..are you for or against uniforms?
