So my sister called me on Wednesday morning and this is what I hear when I say hello, “So I drop the kids off at pre-school and then make my way back down the hallway when I pass a woman who is bent over hugging her child and she has on mint green shorts (I am thinking, “why is she telling me the color of this woman’s shorts?”) and then I notice that her underwear band is sticking out and her underwear are rust colored (Now I am thinking, “why is she telling me the color of this woman’s underwear?”) and then I notice that her underwear say “My dog is cuter than your dog” and you can read it clearly through her shorts.
Just in case you are wondering, my sister didn’t stop the lady and tell her that she could read her cheeks. I thought she should. She thought it would be awkward. No more awkward than being the laughing stock at your child’s pre-school, though.
Do you have underwear with cute sayings across the bum? Are you certain that you wear them with clothing that is not see through?
The other day, I picked up baby from his crib after a nap. I was lifting him up over the crib bar which meant that he was higher than face level and I had my face tilted up while I talked to him. “Hey Critter! How was your nap?” I asked him just as he let out a burp that was accompanied by spit up. That landed in my open mouth. The miracle? Some might say it is that I didn’t throw up. Really, I know it’s that I didn’t drop the baby in the state of shock I was in. Instead, I calmly walked to our bedroom, put baby on the floor with his toys, and then proceeded to brush my teeth vigorously. A lot. Who knew there were such occupational hazards with parenting? And please tell me I am not alone. What have been your occupational hazards with parenting or babysitting?
