Oh to be 10 again.

Alissa had her friend Nichole over this past week. They are the best of friends. They had their first playdate when they were a couple of months old. (Translation: we got together drinking with her parents one night, and by then we both had babies.) We love them like family.


Alissa and Nichole were playing. I was folding laundry. I was folding underwear, which happened to be Sean's.

Nichole: "My dad's underwear looks like that too."

Alissa: "My mom calls them tighty whities, or something like that."

Me (Thinking): Has she actually heard me say that?

Nichole: "My dad's underwear gets holes in the butt area."

Alissa: "Yeah, so does my dad's. We think he blasts them in there with his farts."

Nichole: "My dad too! We say the same thing."

Interlude: 5 minutes of hysterical laughter. I am trying not to laugh. Actually I'm trying not to join in the conversation.

Alissa: "Let's go upstairs." (She grabs the camera. Stupid me doesn't catch on to what she is up to)

I continue folding, only to hear tons of laughing and squealing. Next thing I know, Evan is at the top of the stairs...

Evan : "Mom!!!"

Me: "What?"

Evan: " Alissa is taking pictures of Dad's underwear with the camera"

Me: "Alissa, come on now..." (although secretly I think it is hilarious, b/c I'm immature.)

Evan: "Mom, Alissa just cut a hole in the back of Dad's underwear!"

Me: "Alissa, no way! You didn't do that, did you?"

Alissa: "Don't worry Mom."

Me: "What do you mean don't worry?"

Alissa: "It was just a tiny hole. It wasn't like Dad farted the hole in his underwear."

Giggles Galore.

I think you can see where this went. I wasn't particularly happy, but, on the other hand, she had a point, right?

Maybe not. Hmm...

For what it is worth, Sean thought it was funny, although he did warn her not to do it again.

Aaah, kids.

OMG, my sides hurt from laughing. My hubby FINALLY threw out his undies with holes. What is it with theaddies having hole-y undies? I don't get it.

Visiting from wendi A's blog : ).

Hubby says the ones with holes are more comfy. lets just pray he's not in a car wreck.

Sadly, I can relate.

Like, Amelia Bedelia, my husband says they're the most comfortable ones.

Something about circulation and air flow.
