You win this one

Me: “Your pajamas are on backwards.”

Little Miss Thing, age 5: “No they aren’t.”

Me: “Yes, they are. I can see the tag sticking out in front under your chin.”

LMT: “These aren’t my pajamas.”

(slow blink)

Me: “You win.”

Odd Hobby

My Oldest, age 13: “I accidentally put the dog’s pajamas on her backwards. For the record, it’s really hard to take off dog pajamas while the dog is trying to kill you.”

Me: “I’m on the dog’s side on this one.”

Oldest: “You never support my hobbies.”


Parenting Tip #62:

If a four year old volunteers to go to bed at 6:30 pm… you let that child go to bed.

Also, check their temperature and might as well start making alternate child care plans for tomorrow.

And, word to the wise — don’t wear your good pajamas to bed because the likelihood that Patient Zero is going to crawl into your bed in the night to then puke on you is about 50/50.
