Homeroom Wars

Today's Spirit Week day was "Homeroom wars," which means that each classroom gets to choose something that they get to do. Katrina and Zane were both completely banking on their classrooms getting to be nerds, and both of them were crushed when they weren't allowed to use that. I think that probably half of the classes (maybe more) choose nerds, and so it has been decided that only 1-2 classes are allowed to use a theme.

And so Katrina was "Wacky Wednesday." She wore all of her clothes backwards, and we gave her a mohawk of tiny twisty buns. Houston got to be a nerd. Making long hair look nerdy is quite difficult, partly because of the huge amounts of gel needed to get that greasy-haired look. By the time he came home from school, it looked almost normal again. Zane's classroom was ninjas. When he went to bed last night, he was all excited about being a ninja. This morning he came down in normal clothes because he was "too tired" to dress like a ninja.

Me: "But...all you have to do is wear black. The black clothes you set out last night."
Him: "I don't want to."
Me: "Your class is counting on you to participate, right? It's a contest?"
Him: "I don't want to."

Eventually the combination of having some food in his stomach and my cajoling changed his mind, and by the time he came home, he was really glad that he had dressed up.
