Clothes Hider

Col is a little particular about Addie's clothes. When we first found out we were going to have a girl, I went shopping on my lunch break and bought some baby girl outfits. Only one passed his stringent standards, and the rest were rejected and returned.

Yesterday, I was going through Addie's clothes and packing away all the 0-6 month clothes in our newly created attic. As I was going through her drawer of clothes she doesn't fit into yet, to my surprise, I found about 15 outfits that had been hidden away in the drawer and never worn. He insists it wasn't intentional, but I know better. The following are some examples of things he would've hidden if given the chance:

Because it's from Walmart, which he has boycotted.

Because it has cats on it.

Because there are cats on it, and because it's ugly.

Because it has Pooh on it.

Because it has ruffles.

Because it has bunnies.

Because it's too boyish.

so is he this stringent with the rest of the family clothes? Like has he forbid you from wearing anything with pooh on it?

Aubrey said...

I never wear anything with pooh on it. And that's all I'm going to say about the matter.

Tiffany said...

Ok, wait, so now after re-reading that, I could see how, well I should have added a "Winnie the" before. If only I had been so clever as to know what I was writing.

Aubrey said...

I do find that sometimes a little underlying, immature humor can be gained by omitting "Winnie the". Call me childish, but I get a little chuckle out of it.

It's sort of how Troy breaks up in unstopable laughter any time someone says "do do" Like, "I do, do you know what I mean?"

Courtney said...

Oh stop. Nate does the same thing. I was going to ask you Aubrey, if Colman made you throw out your onesies, I know how you like wearing those around the house.

Now THAT'S a picture for the blog.
