Mums all over Sydney this morning let out a collective chuckle when Jackie O recalled the story of how she sent her daughter Kitty to school in dress up on the wrong day… Not once, but twice in two weeks.
“I’ve stuffed up big time,” Jackie began, as she told her breakfast radio co-host Kyle Sandilands how her five-year-old daughter Kitty was the only child in fancy dress two weeks in a row.
“They had a ‘Dress As An Olympian’ day. She had green jeans, a yellow top and I had a bunch of gold medals that I put around her neck. Actually, she looked awesome,” said Jackie.
“I would have been the best mum ever, however, I got the days wrong, and Kitty rocked up to school dressed as an Olympian and no one else was.
“I realised at drop off… Everyone is in normal clothes and Kitty’s getting around dressed as an Olympian all day.”
Then, earlier this week, she dressed Kitty up as Harry Potter for Book Week.
Unfortunately, the dress up day had been cancelled at the last minute, with Jackie O forgetting to pass on the message to her husband, who was on school drop-off duty.
“She was wearing a jumper with a tie and a clock and she had the want and the big black glasses. She looked really cool… But I forgot to tell Lee that the day before they cancelled it and no one was supposed to dress up,” she said.
