take me back tuesday: denim and bunnies and pinching boys trying to lift up my dress


 here i am on my preschool picture day, and clearly, i was ballllllin' in my denim and bunny print overall dress.  thanks to the date written on the back of the photo, i can say with certainty that this picture was take the month before my 5th birthday.  i'm pretty sure age 5 was the point at which my personality and attitude were permanently fixed.  let me explain: don't be fooled by my little smile, i had just pinched the little boy beside me in line for lifting up my dress and i received a time-out.  it was all worth it for me though, because i remember the little boy crying and telling me i was mean.  that taught the little effer not to lift up my bunny dress.  men start early, it seems.  and see those splotches on the photo??  it's spaghetti sauce.  i know this because the picture sits in my mother's kitchen, the glass in the photo was broken when someone carelessly dropped me, and she clearly doesn't love me enough to regularly windex my photos.

Ok, so you pinched a boy, big deal! I personally do not believe that your action warranted a time out! Hello, he lifted your dress! Little perv. You are too stinkin' cute in that picture!

Vic said...

Youuuu are precious.

Salt said...

That outfit is killer! I wish I had an overall dress. I had overalls...and dresses, but never a combination of the two.

You were so cute!

Bathwater said...

So are you saying you don't wear dresses anymore or that you don't give out pinches for lifting the hem?

I'm just keeping notes.

i would like to borrow your dress and i kicked boys in their shins for lifting up my dress.

high five, girly.

Seriously cute! I can SO see you pinching the crap out of some boy for lifting up your dress. This was #1 why I never wanted to wear dresses in school - and didn't all the way until I was 20 something unless I was forced to. Now I don't mind, mostly because I know I can kick a boy in the no-no zone and get my point across, I've done it before and I"ll do it again if you touch my skirt... :)

Cathy said...

This is freakin' cute!!! Is that a homemade overall dress?

MiMi said...

You are CUTE!
Dude, the kid's lucky you didn't murder his face. I stole that from MODG. It's my new favorite.

SO SUPER CUTE!

You tell those stupid boys how it is, sister. Seriously, you're nice to ONLY make him cry. I would've been way meaner. Or maybe I would've kissed him. No telling at 5. I'm pretty sure I had about 3 little boyfriends then. :)

Cee said...

I love the overall dress combo!

Shandal said...

You are sooo cute! While you were "ballllllin'" in your preschool pic, I was "bawling". I was such a baby. My eyes are SOO red in the picture. Very embarrassing. haha!

Hutch said...

I didn't even know they made overall dresses that weren't full on denim! I really missed out.

Cara Smith said...

You are too cute there.

At first I only noticed the splotches on the dress and thought you had a messy lunch before pictures (my kids would do that).

You know how to rock a bunny-print dress! You go!

Erin said...

how about the little perv that lifted your dress? he didn't get in trouble? i would have told him he deserved it, but i guess that's why i'm not a teacher..

myra said...

you are super cute! and the perv got off easy. you should've pinched him again after your time out since he didn't get punished!

d.a.r. said...

Don't let those boys bully you!! :)

Monique-aka-Surferwife23 said...

Oh yeah, Haley could use a tough chick like you on her side. Too bad you're not still 5 and going to school with her. She is so not bold enough to pinch anyone.

Brittany said...

Look at your posin' on the tree like a model lol. And good for you for pinching that little boy! He deserved it. Guess his mother didn't teach him respect for little ladies.

Elizabeth Marie said...

MEN. Jerks. :)

Umm, I'll file this picture under the cutest thing EVER.

Gabby said...

Ha! Love this, spaghetti sauce and all!

Alissa said...

What the heck that time out was so not deserved he started it by taking a peek at you. What a jerk even then lol. Your adorable in this pic.

sHp said...

So cute!!!! And good for you pinching that boy! ha ha ha

Southern Belle Mama said...

That is hilarious...way to teach that little booger who's boss!

Brown Girl said...

Ha, so cute!! You were such a sweet thing, looking not acting! Ha!

Tara said...

i have witnessed you do far more painful things to men than pinching them.

example: kick to the nuts.

Tracie said...

He was asking for it!

PS You are too friggin cute!

LambAround said...

Well weren't you just the little model??
I used to shove boys and laugh. LOL >:)

Karls said...

Morgan said...

You look like a child model! If you weren't then maybe you should have been. Good for you for pinching that little pervert. Go meredith!

I once had a romper with bunnies on it. In fifth grade. My best friend had a matching one.

And? You and Emmi sooo can be besties. See, on Monday we went to a playdate, and the little boy was all "THAT Emmi is MEAN!" Apparently, she beats up the boys. I was all, "Dude, she weighs 35lbs, and you have a good three inches on her. Quit your crying."

Monica said...

So cute! Love the dress:-)
Pinching boys eh!

Naysel said...

Allyson said...

That boy should be counting his lucky stars all he got was a pinch. You have to be a little more than the next boy in line just to get a peak at Meredith's Girldom. PULEAZE. I would like to know, though...how many times did your pigtails get yanked because I can see that happening and Lord only know WHAT you did to that kid.

Copyboy said...

Very cute pic and a cool blog too.
