You'll get a laugh out of this

This is more for my memory (and Wilson's embarrassment when he is of reading age) than anything else....But, I sent Wilson to school today in Emma Claire's Dora panties. You see, we only own like 7 pair of little boys underwear. Well, since Wilson still won't poop in the potty and since we (I) started this, I feel like putting him back in pull-ups or diapers would be a set back, so he goes to school everyday in underwear. Well, 2-3 poops a day in underwear, and I only own 7 pair - well, 2 and a half days and we are out of clean underwear. Well, yesterday, Wilson ACCIDENTALLY dropped his underwear in the potty, so that was one less we had to work with. This morning I went to get him a pair and realized there were no more clean ones. I gave in to myself and suggested just wearing a pull-up today, but Wilson would have nothing to do with it (which secretly I was thrilled with). Well, the only alternatives were NO underwear at all or Emma Claire's panties. I chose the panties and you'll be proud to know I did pick a YELLOW pair of Dora panties - nevermind that they have a big pink heart on the front, but at least they weren't her pink tinkerbell panties!!!! I told Emma Claire's teacher what I did when I dropped them off at school, b/c I knew that he would be the laugh of the day amongst the teachers. Thankfully Wilson loves Dora and didn't think a thing about it. He's only 2 and I'm hoping that all the other 7 boys in his class are too young to realize that they are girl panties - or else we may be in for some counseling pretty soon!

TODAY I bought 6 new pair of underwear!!!!

On another note, last night after reading books to Emma Claire at bedtime she asked me this question:
"Mommy, will you still love me after I die?"
Of course I told her I would and that I hoped that we would both live to be 100 and I would die before she did, but WOW it shocked me...and this isn't the first time lately that she's asked questions about dying. The other night she was nearly sobbing saying how much she didn't want to die. I certainly don't want her to be excited about dying (meaning wanting to die soon), but I don't want her to be afraid, either. I think all the talks we have about Jesus and heaven and Jesus dying on the cross for our sins so we can live with Him in heaven one day have really got her thinking, but sometimes I really don't know how to answer her! This mommy thing is HARD sometimes!

Kelli,
That is a scream about the underwear. Don't know if y'all have a Kohl's store but they had the underwear buy 1 pack and get 50% off a second pack. Granger needed the next size up. Thanks for a good laugh and I think Granger would have loved wearing Dora too. The real funny thing would be if the other boys went home asking their Moms for Dora underwear.

mmm...we haven't had the conversation yet. i'm pretty sure i'm glad that we haven't.

another thing i remembered i did with the boys when trying to get them to understand that poop goes in the potty too...(first, i taught them how to do it all sitting. the standing came later...and the aim still ain't all that!) but i also let them go naked on bottom when at home. cause (generally) they won't just go in the middle of the floor. (but there are always some who will!!) so you might have a better chance to "catch" him that way. the next hard thing to look forward to...tying shoes. holy cow i didn't remember it being that hard!

You are hilarious. A story for you...my baby cousin is 5 and back when his mom was potty-training him...they made a big deal about going and picking out "big boy" underwear to be like his old brother...no more pull-ups. So, off they went to the store and he was standing there wide-eyed in front of the entire underwear section...and went straight to a pair of PINK DORA PANTIES. What did his mom do? She purchased them because he was excited about them. He loves Dora! We had (and still have) good laughs about that one. He wore them for weeks...all Dora! It was hard for his dad to let his son wear pink panties, but they went along with it...acting like it was no big deal...and finally, one day he asked to switch to Thomas the Train. He's fine now and ALL BOY!!!
Your story made me think of that one. Good memories.

That's too funny about the Dora panties! Also, we have had similar conversations lately about God and dying with Mary Mac - I think our situation has more to do with my grandmother dying and her just being curious, but it is very hard to explain to a 4 year old that dying and going to heaven and being with our Lord is a GOOD thing! She has told me several times that she doesn't want to die and leave me to be in heaven! Makes me want to cry, AND, I have no reply!

I am dying! Too funny, but you gotta do what you gotta do! Mary McKinnon is obsessed with Dora! EVERYTHING is DA-DA, as she has nicknamed her. Thanks for the laugh.

I keep trying to tell Owen that Dora is for girls and Diego is for boys, but he loves them both equally. And he would have loved Dora panties, too. And it IS surprising how fast we go through those things, too! Great story!

These houses are awesome and they have these "neighborhoods" all over Orlando so I'm sure you can choose how close you want to be to the parks. The nice thing about it with young kids is that you can grocery shop and not have to eat out every meal AND you can easily go back and forth for naps!
