Let’s not forget that today is a solemn holiday here in the U.S. I never want to disparage that because I really respect those who volunteered for their country and made the ultimate sacrifice.
That being said, I feel like I can simultaneously acknowledge the holiday and share this Monday funny.
About a month ago, my mother-in-law sent an email asking for my kids’ measurements — she had some leftover grey tencel fabric and wanted to make K-Man and Ell-Bell matching outfits with Paw Patrol patches on them. Lord help me. Like a good daughter-in-law, I ignored the email. So she sent it again a few days later. I ignored some more, and then I delayed, and then I went out of town, but she persisted, and eventually I sent her some measurements.
On Friday, these
prison uniforms puppies arrived in the mail.
The mother-in-law never disappoints. I just want to know why she hassled me so hard for measurements and then ultimately made my son’s and daughter’s shirts the exact same length. K-Man had to wear a t-shirt under his outfit so as not to expose his belly button.
I guess I’ll just add these to the pile of clothing that my kids will never wear but I still have to keep for the rest of time.
Until next time,
