Safety Patrol

Yes, there she is. The very essence of safety and patroling for safety. She now reports to school extra early and maintains order in the cafeteria among the breakfast-eaters. Look how sweet and helpful she looks. She's more than willing to assist you in opening your milk or to get you a napkin.

But I warn you now, do not cross her. If you feel a desire to start yelling or start a food fight, LOOK OUT.

Because she means business and she is not impressed with tomfoolery. You do not want to mess with that.

Where does she get her authoritative prowess?

That's right! Me! The original patroler of safety! When kids at school saw my acid wash pleated jean shorts, frizzy perm, and huge glasses they swallowed their gum and sat up straight. I mean, come on, wouldn't you?

Very cute, yes.
I'm actually against these kind of political dynasties. :-)

bonus points for that hair.

I love how you are standing in the mulch for the picture. And I'm pretty sure you stole my hair cut/perm.
Emma, I would obey what you said if I went to your school.

Sharlene, Mom, Grammy said...

What parent would let their child get those glasses? Oh, I know, a mother whose own glasses were almost identical. :)

I think you, Lisa, and I all had perms to beat all perms.

Congrats to Emma. I wouldn't cross her, that's for sure. I think it's way cool that she's following in her mother's footsteps.

all I can say is, oh my.

joelb said...

but where's the helmet? didn't safety patrol wear helmets?

you know, for safety.

...and signing.

Kacey said...

wow...i seriously chuckled pretty hard at this one. you and your perm were fierce!

Alice Wills Gold said...

Awesome Lori.

I can see more of you in Emma after seeing those the face, not the hair.

I forget that Emma is a year behind Abigail and Dani in school. Enjoy it while it lasts. Middle school is the equivalent to the Telestial Kingdom...pretty much.....neverending homework.

Tell Emma to keep on patroling. You should let her go on the Safety Patrol trip to DC next summer, Abigail had a blast.

I took Emma very seriously! But, I am sorry I could only laugh with delight when I saw you. This was a great smiley moment for me.

I'm not sure which barber cruze inflicts more terror in me!

Nanette said...

I am so impressed! What responsibility! I don't think I could have handled that! (I wasn't ever as cute as Emma, and I was never blessed with such big glasses. I had the frizzy hair though!)

too cute! (both of you)

Laura said...

hahaha. love it. I think we had the same glasses. I hate to say. ha ha.

Yes I can see Emma in your face. That's pretty cool.
