There are several things that confuse me about the world of children's clothing. Given that it is freezing cold in 80% of the country during the month of December, why do most non-offensive girls' holiday dresses have spaghetti straps?
Almost as perplexing is why underwear makers put designs on the butt sides of toddler underpants.
Their insistence on doing means that toddlers everywhere suffer from the physical discomforts that come along with wearing one's underpants backwards.
"The trucks are supposed to go in the back," I told my almost three year-old today.
"No," he replied and looked at me like I was crazy. When he ran down the hall I got a good look at his makeshift thong.
"Let's turn your underpants around," I suggested a few minutes later. "Please." It pained me to watch him strut around like that.
During our next trip to the bathroom, I tried and failed to turn the underpants around without him knowing. Cameron has his issues, but he's no dummy when it comes to wedgies. He knows when he has one and when he doesn't.
Do your kids do this too?
