A Brief Note on Laundry....

GP is getting way too picky... so he tells me, "I need fresh underwear". I tell him, "There are fresh undies in your drawer". He says, "we're all out!" I say, "NO you're not. I put them there just yesterday. I'll get them." Up I go and sure enough he has half a dozen "fresh underwear" (GP need not wait to have dirty underwear, he likes "fresh underwear", about three times a DAY! Thankyouverymuch!) So anyway, I come down and hand him a pair of "fresh" underwear, and he says, "NO. I need fresh underwear." And he is starting to get distressed.
I say "GP these are FRESH, I just washed them ." And he says, "I Need WHITE fresh underwear!"
OMG! I could not help but laugh and...I asked him, "BUT what's wrong with these? He says, "Those are PINK; those are GIRL'S underwear!" HAHAHAHA. I cannot believe my son, who can wear plaid over plaid, red shirts with green pants (just a string of lights short of a Christmas Tree), is now getting picky about the color of his underwear.
WHAT? So I washed a red placemat with the undies...there are ALWAYS undies in there! How the heck was I supposed to know it would turn his undies pink?
I would tell him about all the undie-less children who would kill for a pair of FRESH PINK undies but somehow I don't think it will help my case so off to the basement I go to fish out the White fresh underwear... somedays, I just can't win. Sigh~!

Oh my goodness that is SO funny!!!! The laughs never end at your place - he is priceless! And I agree with him - a teenage boy shouldn't have to wear pink undies if he doesn't want to! LOL!!!

Well, if you can't get the pink out, try dyeing them blue! :)

What kind of mom are you, making your son wear "pink" underwear? *LOL*
To funny Brenda! ;-)

There was some pink underwear at my house many years ago. Neither my husband or son was very happy with their pink underwear. With a few washes you couldn't even tell it! You're right....somedays...... :-)

Oh how funny... You Go, GP.
No girly indies for you..
Not even if they have a faded pink undertones from the laundry...
I love G.P. and all his little cute saying...
Mom, you should know that fresh means WHITE !1
Blessings,

I enjoyed your post so much, I know it strikes a note with so many parents out there. I have had similiar conversations with him over pink undies! My son was much more of a fashion diva than my daughter ever was. Thanks for the big smile today!

I am sorry but I found that story to be funny. I know it is frustrating for you but...for me an outsider...funny!

At least he changes them!!! No self respecting boy will wear pink (I have 3 sons, so I'm well aware of that fact). I think they are afraid of pink or something - Hee Hee!

Snort snort - that's too funny! Maybe you should take a pair of the white ones and embroider just a teeny tiny heart somewhere and see what he says LOLOLOL
