The 'Just Undies' Battle

We had the Baby-Q on Tuesday and yesterday I was playing catch up on a lot of things so I apologize that I haven't posted in two days. 

Before I get to my coupon post today, I wanted to share a story about Klaeyton. As we all know, it's summer and it gets pretty hot here in Ohio. The other day I had a good twenty minute argument with him about why he couldn't play outside in just his undies. The sad part is that when he kept insistently asking me "Why not?" I was struggling to come up with an answer that I knew would satisfy him. "Because it isn't appropriate", is an answer I knew would be pointless to tell a two-year old. He eventually gave in and let me put some shorts on him, but the argument didn't settle there. 

A day or two later, I was helping him change his undies and get ready for the day. I asked him, "Do you want to put shorts and a shirt on?" (I only asked because I knew he wasn't going to be outside for awhile, because it was raining). The response I got was of course, "No." So I asked, "Why not?"

"Because man cub wears just undies." And there you have it. Klaeyton's obsession with The Jungle Book has finally rubbed off into real life. 

I didn't argue after that. I decided that the "just undies" battle wasn't worth fighting. 

My little man cub. 

Stay tuned! Coming later today- Coupon Lingo!
