Please explain…

12 Feb

why getting Rosalyn to admit that her underwear ARE indeed on wrong is so bloody panic inducing, and why I seem to be condemming her to a life of hellish agony just because I’m trying to reduce the odds of major wedgie?

I mean come on…..that MUST hurt.

    I so hear you!
    it used to happen with Morgan… and it would drive me insane and we’d be arguing about it. and then I just let her have them on backwards one morning, I was too tired and too late already to argue with her. it bothered the heck out of her because indeed she was getting a wedgie all day long (and yes it brought a sadistic pleasure to make her stay with the underwear like that all day knowing she’d get periodic wedgies).
    at the end of the day, after her bath, she actually “lectured” me on the correct way to put on her underwear and told me what happens if put them on the other way, it was so hard to not laugh out loud while she was all serious talking about this.

    I can assure you, it has never happened again.

    not sure if you can handle letting her a wedgie, or if she will indeed get constant wedgies throughout the day wearing her undies backward, but it may be worth the try.

    and really, the sadistic pleasure at seeing them fight the wedgie and look at you like telling you “oh now I get what you meant” is priceless!

    and for the record of those that have CPS number on speed dial, no child was harmed during that exercise… she was just inconvenienced. ๐Ÿ˜€

    Oh god…Max eats pizza backwards–starting at the crust. He wears shoes on the wrong feet. Without fail, he puts his Pull-up on backwards every single morning.

    He swears he’s doing all of these things the right way, and that I am crazy. I am getting a pretty good picture of what his adolescence might be like.

    But I love that I have a kid who’s interesting, and tries to make his own way. I hope he’s this way for a long time.

    Let her live with the wedgie. That is the SUREST way to get her to learn a lesson.

    In other words, I completely agree with March.

    I just don’t understand why they pitch such a bloody fit when it’s pointed out they need to adjust something. I need to carry a dremel in my pocket so I can give my self a lobotomy every time Kieran starts screaming and carrying on because I’ve noted that his pj top is backwards.

    As long as the seatbelts are fastened and the sharp knives are still safely out of reach, I say nothing. Unless there are boogers involved – then I’m all “dude, you won’t eat broccoli, don’t eat boogers!” It drives me batshit.

    Wedgies pale in comparison. ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Nobody 6 or under in this house wears their underwear correctly. None of them. And I…just cannot care anymore, ha.

    Not quickly. I’ve never met anything more stubborn than me….aside from her…

    I fight it out on the most inane issues with my youngest all the bloody time. In the end, get the damn wedgie, kid, but don’t expect any sympathy.

    My favorite today has been “I’m cold”-while she’s running around in panties. She hates clothes so much she’ll run around virtually nekid, dragging her comforter everywhere.

    Strange creatures.
