Rainy Thursday

4 11 2010

Today is a rainy Thursday (which is good because that means my basement framing will get finished!) so I thought I would entertain everyone with a funny story.  My 8 year old son is not a fan of underwear.  He never has been.  We actually had to institute a “underwear to school” rule.  To which he turned into a “no underwear on weekend’ policy.  Sigh.  I’m not washing his clothes.  Ewwww!

Our latest hygiene battle is still centered around underwear.  (Who would have thought something so basic and, well hygienic would absorb so much of our energy?)  Last week my husband noticed E. was on day 3 of  the same underwear.  My husband of course explained that while it is GREAT that he is actually wearing underwear, he should be changing them every day.  My 8  year old’s response?  “Dad, can’t we just take it one step at a time?”

The irony here is one of his favorite book series?  Captain Underpants.

hmmm, have you given him the option of different styles of underwear? Old Navy makes some super comfy cotten boxers that Jack wears these days. they look just like dad’s. He hates tight underwear! we also have super soft cotton boxers from hanna andersson. he rejects the tight kind we used to buy at kmart with super heroes on them.
