A pause in the July series for a little anecdote:
(preface: We don't have to really dress up very often....our church is fairly casual, etc, and there just aren't too many occasions to get really fancy...the boys do NOT like to wear dress pants..they think JEANS are dressy. Their father perpetuates this notion, I might add.)
In the car a while back, I was discussing with one of the boys (I will spare him the identification) why he was wearing the same shorts over and over...
Me: Why do you keep wearing those shorts? (gym shorts)
Boy: I don't have any other shorts!
Me: Yes, you do! You have plenty of nice shorts that fit you really well (meaning nice khaki cargo shorts)
Boy: MO-ooM! Those are WEDDING shorts!!!
Those boys! We let them wear nice shorts and polo shirts to a wedding this summer, and now he thinks those shorts are too dressy to wear any other time!!! He received quite the lecture after that conversation. So did his father, because while getting ready for said wedding, he (Tim) accused me of "trying to kill him" by making him wear a nice, long-sleeved shirt. :) Like father, like son!
