The Blame Game

Joey came home from preschool yesterday wearing different pants than the ones I dressed him in that morning.

He apparently wanted to make it 100% clear to his mom that he was just an innocent bystander in the Great Wet Pants debacle of 2012:

"Dear Mom - my pants are soaking wet because the puddle did it."

Another likely story.


  1. That's hilarious. Did his teacher write it out for him?

  2. Well, you know, puddles can be very menacing.

  3. Haha! I believe him. He's too clever not to go along with him!

  4. Must now add puddles to my "not to be trusted" list! My son always had back up pants and iunders in his preschool backpack. i will never forget the day I picked him up, and he had borrowed clothes on...really TWO accidents in 2 1/2 hours?

  5. Skwishee - The teachers at Joey's school love to send home verbatim notes. Danny once brought home a drawing of food that read, "I like to eat knuckle sandwiches" because that's what we joked about giving him for dinner. Totally made us look bad. There is no doubt that this is exactly what Joey told the teacher.

    Jewels - Damn puddles. Ruin everything.

    Tina - I knew he was a smart tamale!

    Andrea - Oh no. I feel your pain - Jack did that once, but I think he went thru 3 pairs in 2 1/2 hours. I must have given him too much orange juice that morning...

  6. Beege was actually attacked by a puddle once. I turned around for one second, next thing you know, soaked up to her hips. And of course I hadn't packed the extra clothes, and it was at drop off, so I had to sprint home for some pants.

    I would LOVE to get verbatim notes home from her teacher; she says some really weird shit.

  7. This is precious. :) I almost miss those wet pants in a plastic bag days. (Now watch my 8-y-o soak his pants at school this week.)

  8. Elizabeth - be careful what you wish for! (: Thanks for reading!
