Girls! How do you expect to become doctors without opening a book? My, what lofty ambition we have! Just sit quietly next to this potted plant and smile pretty for the camera.
What's a Saucy to do? Complain, of course. After approaching the principal and the photographer, it was apparent that this problem wasn't going to go away. Both parties proclaimed the floral arrangement to be a "festive touch" and indicated that retakes would only be given in the case of closed eyes or funny faces.
Closed eyes, indeed.
Saucy had no choice. It was time to rally the troops. Time to indoctrinate the tiny suffragettes in the kindergarten class and call them to action...
It began on the playground as a grassroots campaign. During parent volunteer supervision time, Saucy casually asked the girls why was it that they had their photos taken with flowers and not books?
Undaunted, Saucy then asked them if they could read... could they read books like the boys? Then why did the boys get to use the books in the photos?
With her mini army mustered, the group stormed the principal's office en masse and demanded retakes! It was very cute and all, they didn't use signs but Saucy had some in the back of her Jeep just in case they were needed. No, really. She did.
