Not on my watch

Being the last day of school is Friday,and as I am getting the kids ready for the last days of the year.Something funny had come to my mind...One day bout 2 years ago(my son was in kindergarten).I was having some minor surgery in the morning so I had my hubby get his clothes ready for me so I could get myself ready..My son come downstairs and looks good..Other than the fact it looked like his pants were getting a tad bit short..I told him "man you have really grown..Your pants barley fit you anymore"..He said proudly"mom I grow everyday you no"...Not thinking much of it..And not having enough time to get his pants switched I just let him go that way...afterall...He was only in kindergarten..And they were just a tad short..That's all...

Well after he came home from school I could see he was in distress..I asked what was wrong...He told me I shoulda put some different pants on him..I asked why..They are just short...He said no..I couldn't button them all day..They kept falling down...So I had him come closer so I could examine the situation...
Well turns out my hubby got out a pair of our daughters pants..Who at the time was 3..So my poor son who wore a size 5...Was wearing his sister size 3..The band around his waist did not even meet up...Big gap..I asked him why he did not inform me before he left...He said.."Well you told me they will do for today"..And he said he cried on the bus to school..Told his friends I made him wear his baby sisters pants today....My bad...That was a very bad mom moment..And trust me..There are many...

Awwwww.. I have brain farts too. I made a long post about this a few weeks ago..but a short version would be, my daughter had to turn some pictures in and I forgot. SHe got put in time out for it and was not able to play on the playground with the class. She cried all the way home. Was her first time to ever get in trouble at school and it was really my job to remember.

Poor little guy, probably scarred him for life with that one.
Our kids are resilient little buggers!

Awwww....poor little man! I think every mom out there has done something like that. Makes you feel bad, but also makes great stories to tell them later on! :)

I stopped by...this totally sounds like something I will do in the not-so-distant future...I've already gotten socks mixed up between dh, me and the boy! Hopefully I can keep our underwear all straight!
