Pretty much just like the title says, just ramblings of things that are on my mind and I tend to think in the form of run-on sentences. You've been warned.

He Wears Short Shorts
As usual it's Fatherhood Friday at Dad Blogs. Click the link to the right and see what all the great folks over there have to say.
So I was watching Rachel Ray on Wednesday and Kate(of Jon and fame) was on. After feeling bad while watching her squirm through questions about recent events(if you don't know you've never seen Yahoo News lol). Then she started talking about her new line of clothes through Healthtex and Wal Mart(SERIOUSLY??).
I actually understood what she was getting at though when she mentioned wanting to let your kids pick their own clothes out. I've done it, it's not pretty.
I rarely let Number 1 pick out his school clothes, but play clothes I'm fine with. He also dresses himself for gymnastics practice. How hard is it to grab a pair of shorts and a t-shirt? Not hard, if I get the clothes in the right drawers...
One night last fall I took him to practice as normal and all was well. We came home and the missus had dinner ready(she cooks on gymnastics night). She gave Number 1 a look and then she looked at me like he had a second head growing from his neck. I stepped back and took another look and didn't really see anything. She looked at me and started to laugh(nothing I'm not used to, I'm quite familiar with it by now). She asked Number 1 to come closer and she pulled out the back of his shorts and started laughing even harder.
I wasn't quite as on the ball as I should have been when I was putting away the laundry that week. Apparently I put a pair of Squirts(at the time 18 month) shorts in Number 1's drawer(6 years old).
Sure they looked short, but that's why they call them shorts...
