Yesterday Bailey came into my room at 6:50am and asked if I liked her outfit. When I rolled over in bed to open one eye and look at her I instantly started laughing.
“Oh Bails! There is such a story behind those pants!”
(looks behind her) “I don’t see a story.”
Parker, who was standing next to her got on the ground on her hands and knees and said, “Mommy, I don’t see a story either, I just see her bottom.”
If I could actually put me LAUGHING OUT LOUD on a blog I would because MAN did I start cracking up! What a great way to start a day!
The story “behind” those pants?
My dad bought a pair of blue pants from REI when I was about 4 months pregnant with Bailey, before we even knew it was a girl (they are girl pants). They were wrapped up and sent to us (we lived in Spokane, WA) as a gift. At the time they looked HUGE compared to all the 0-3 month stuff we’d been given. I didn’t even know what size small meant in kid-age/size. Those pants have been with us for seven years of marriage, two states and six moves. I just found them recently when I was unpacking and stuck them in Bailey’s drawer. To see these pants we’ve been carting around for so many years actually fit the baby I was pregnant with when gifted them was so awesome.
But to see Parker get on the ground to look for the “story” and only find her bottom?
how funny, that is so cute.
What an unforgettable morning!!
