Happy Wear Your Own Pants Day!

| 0 Comments | 0 TrackBacks
Every morning we try to get Jude moving, but with great difficulty.   We usually try being extra silly to curb his crankiness.

I stopped in Jude's room and overhead Jude say, "Dad, see it's not your Mario shirt; you're wearing that one to work!"

"Oh, I just forgot to put my Mario shirt on," is what I think Chris said, "Maybe if you hurry up and wear it before me I won't be able to wear it."

I chimed in as Karenna walked in behind me, "Karenna are you wearing your pants or Jude's today?"  Karenna likes to play along.

Jude said, "I am going to put on my own pants today!"

"Okay, well, Karenna has her own pants on and I have mine, so I guess today is Wear Your Own Pants Day!"

"Wear Your Own Pants Day?" Karenna asked.

"Yep.  So when you see your friends at school wearing their own pants make sure you tell them Happy Wear Your Own Pants Day!"

"I can't tell them that!" she said. "I'll get in trouble!"

"Why?"

"You can't say 'wear your own pants' in school."

"Why not? They do it every day? And how do you know?  I was a teacher.  I should know what was allowed."

"Things have changed since back then.  My teacher will send me to the principal."

At this point Jude told not to bother his sister.

"What if I emailed your teacher?" I asked. "And I explained that it was Wear Your Own Plants Day?"

"Don't do that, mom!" she said. "You can't do that! That's wasting the Internet."
