Whatever

[This post requires a little bit of background information:  Alex changes her clothes about 87 times a day.  It's annoying.  There.  Consider yourself informed.]

It was dinner time.  But Alex was wearing her church clothes at the moment (Outfit # 63), and we were having spaghetti.  So I sent her to change.
Then Alex licked Noah's shirt, leaving a wet spot behind, which he can't stand.  So I sent him to change.
I sat down at the dinner table - and the kids came out in their swimsuits.
Part of me was annoyed.  I opened my mouth to scold them...but a giggle slipped out.
And then it was all over.

I ate dinner while the kids danced to Christmas carols in their swimsuits.



And we all laughed.
A lot.

There must be a genetic link to having the uncontrollable desire to change your clothes constantly. Do you remember how after changing your outfit 5 times for school and I thought you were finally ready you would hear the bus pull up across the street and then peel your outfit off and put on something else? No doubt where your kids got that from. It's WAY funnier that my grandkids are doing that now :) Glad you can laugh about it too.

my kids change 87 times a day, too! thanks for inspiring me to not be so annoyed next time...or the next 50 times tomorrow! today i actually let rebecca go to school looking so white trash & i just didn't care b/c i had already yelled at her all morning. i think she purposely wears outfits that bug me...and the reason we have 5000 pairs of underwear is b/c they both change their underwear that often too! now we all understand why i do so much freaking laundry! thanks for a good laugh!:)
