Wardrobe Malfunction

Lately I've been finding a lot of my 3 year old daughter's underwear strewn around. It turns out that she has been having a little problem.

No, it's not what you think. They're dry and clean. Just colorful little trails of fresh Doras, Elmos, Kitties, Monkeys or Plain Pinks between her room and the hallway mirror where she now prefers to dress and check her look.

Today I found out what's been going on. Apparently she started to notice that sometimes, when she puts her underwear on, it's backwards. Being smart like she is, she easily figured out the obvious solution to this matter: she must find and put on a pair that is NOT backwards. Back to the drawer she would go, in search of a forwards pair of underwear. Unfortunately, sometimes those pairs turned out to be the backwards kind, too.

Don't you just hate it when you reach into your drawer for a pair of undies and all that's left are the backwards kind?

For a long time Sean put his undies on backwards, but he said he liked it that way so I sent him off to school that way, further cementing my reputation as a stellar mother.

Oh that is really cute. Backwards underwear is really no good.

This story is hilarious, but look at the hall-o-bloggy-fame you have here in your comments! And here's me, crashing the party and sidling up to everyone, smiling ingratiatingly...

No kidding! These are ladies who have blessed me so much over the years with their own blogs, so I wanted to just invite them to visit. I feel honored that they did!

How funny! It reminds me of when my youngest son was first potty training. We were outdoors with no bathroom nearby, so Scott told him to go try to "go" on the tree. He couldn't he went and tried the next tree. He tried every tree in that lot, and none of them worked.
