Is it a flower? Is it a princess? No, it's a...

I think I have to clarify something. Something I thought of when reading some of your comments. Something minor, really. Not important. At all.

Here goes: Only ONE of them is actually a BOY... For the other, it's completely okay to be dressed in flowery outfits!

That said, yesterday I did something even worse: It was still Carnaval, and I was supposed to drop them off at daycare in funny and/or cute outfits. I only had those flowers, which are for, you know, outdoor activities. Like sitting in the double stroller in the middle of winter watching a two-hour parade of other flowery people dancing around with clowns and animals and other weird creatures. They would have died from a heat stroke if I'd let them wear those things at daycare, where the thermostat is always set to "Gee, are we supposed to drop off our children here and take all of their clothes back home with us?"

So what did this WORST MOTHER EVER do?


I dressed them up as EACH OTHER!

If he didn't already hate me for the flowers, he will for dressing him up like a GIRL. Worse, for actually thinking he looked kind of cute in that purple dress...

I think his sister got the good end of THAT deal. And the better end of the flower deal as well. Hmm, I'll have to make up for it at next year's Carnaval. And the year after that. And maybe every year untill he goes to college. Where he will finally seek his revenge by crossdressing voluntarily, freaking out his dad who will then take it out on ME.

"See? I TOLD you it wasn't a good idea to let him wear that purple dress when he was still a baby!"

I'm screwed...

But at least I'm not posting any pictures this time. That must count for something, right?


  1. Awww man. He's really going to hate you someday. But I want pictures!

  2. YOU HAVE to post pictures!! OH MY GOSH HILARIOUS! You have to! You have to!!
