The Weather Outside is Frightful

Actually, the weather isn’t that bad anymore, but the streets in my neighborhood are seriously frightful.Icy_Road_tire_track

And our schools are canceled for the rest of the year.

To be completely fair, the kids really only had two and a half days of school this week anyway, but they were three very important days for Christmas preparedness.

I’m not totally screwed here. We were almost on top of things except for S-T-O-C-K-I-N-G S-T-U-F-F.

Oh crap, my kids can spell now.

We are going a little stir crazy. These things have all happened in the past hour:

1) Ian punched me in the nose trying to hug me.

2) Claudia and I got into an argument about wearing jeans with no underwear. I said it would be uncomfortable she vehemently disagreed.

3) Ian called me into the bathroom because he pooped in the shape of a “C”.

I need to get out of the house.

  1. Thanks for not posting a picture of the poop. I mean, that should go without saying, but you never know with the internet.

    I’d let the underpants argument go. It’s her butt. You can always tuck some into your purse so she can put them on later if she chafes.

    But then I’m the mom who lets her kids walk outside without a coat in 10 degree weather because if we’re just going to the car, they won’t get frostbite on the way (and I take the coat). (they usually agree to put the coat on after about 3 steps). I’m also the mom whose been chastised by the preschool teacher because her daughter didn’t wear panties to school (under pants, not commando with a dress and bare legs). for real. we switched preschools. Not for that, but it was an early indicator of how the year would go. Should have run when it was just moral judgements about panties – it got ugly later on.

  3. My best friend spent a good ten years not wearing underwear with most things, including jeans. It never bothered her, but then, maybe she has a really tough… bum. I always thought it would chafe, too, but she disagreed.

    To each their own.

  4. This probably doesn’t help but I kind of agree with Claudia. You just can’t wear them again without washing them.

  5. my daughter woke me at 6am yesterday to tell me her poop was orange.
    1) don’t wake me up at 6am
    2) i really didn’t need to know what color the poop was. really.

  6. I’m all for going commando. But, jeans? I dunno, she’s a little girl, maybe her’s don’t fit as tight in the crotch region as mine do. I never wear underwear with sweats or PJ bottoms because I feel like they are in some sort of friction fight. But my jeans…there’s a big fat seam…you know…there. I just can’t do it. It could be worse, my daughter gets mad that I insist she change her underwear on a daily basis. Ugh.

  7. It’s awful when they figure out how to spell, isn’t it?

  8. 1. I hope you didn’t punch back. It sounds like hugging is dangerous in your house.
    2. I know grown women that don’t wear underwear with jeans. I don’t get it, but apparently it doesn’t bother everyone.
    3. It could have been worse.

    I always get excited to have a break from school. Then I remember that my children also have the same break.

    It’s even worse when they can spell AND tell time.

  9. I hear ya. Holidays suck…especially when they’re preempted by snow.

  10. I read about an actuary who calculated that the odds of a man’s trousers falling down if he was wearing both a belt and suspenders was about 35,000 to one. What would be the odds of a man’s trousers falling down while wearing only a belt? What about only suspenders?

  11. Dying. Laughing. Shape of a C. Hysterical.

  12. Wow. In the shape of a “C”. You should have taking pictures. It is very rare.
