Under Wha?

2077 2077_ () 2077 2077 I am walking into the store with three of the older boys.

“Guys,” I say as we move past the sliding glass doors, “I’ve got some good news and some bad news.”
They all look at me with interest.
“The good news,” I start, “is that we don’t have a lot on our list.”
“Well then what’s the bad news?”
“One of the items is new underwear for me.”
The minute I say these last words my teenager points in the direction of the toys with questioning eyebrows. I nod and he immediately leads his brothers off to a safe, cootie-free distance.

  1. So funny!! When we go to Target mine will barely tolerate even walking by the department!

  2. Actually, in our house, if amy of our boys wrestle indoors the disciplinary action is to go shopping with Mom for underwear. Only had to make good on it one time almost 4 years ago, and we haven't had an indoor wrestling incident since! Well, not while I was home, anwyay!

  3. How funny!!!!!!

  4. Rachel, This is not as comical of a comment as I'd like it to be. I read your blog all of the time and enjoy your humor. I have six boys and would love to adopt a girl from Reece's Rainbow. Ever heard of it? Her name is Celine 2H. She has Down's Syndrome. Would you please consider looking into Reece's Rainbow (http://reecesrainbow.org) and bringing awareness to these special little children looking for a forever family? I would really appreciate your power to get people involved. thanks
