Let’s talk about babies and underwear.

Why do babies like to put underwear around their heads? Maisie stacked them all up around her neck the other day and crawled around as though she was the prettiest little princess there ever could be. When I told my friend Katie about it, she happily exclaimed that Julia had done the same thing earlier that day. I retold the story today to my friend Margie and she let me know that her girls did the same thing. I remember pictures of my niece, when she was about three years old, wearing my sister’s thongs. Interesting. I guess us women start at an early age with our love for pretty undies. Well, except for that Maisie decided to wear my big, cozy undies that I sometimes sleep in. Sorry, but the pretty ones are reserved for daytime use. Shouldn’t it be the other way around? TMI…I know….I know. Justin actually captured the underwear (or panties as I sometimes like to call them for fun) around her neck. Here is the picture!

    Okay…for one. THANKS FOR TELLING EVERYONE THAT I WHERE THONGS! I prefer “g-string”. And second..Avery was NOT 3. That would have been last year. We were living in Huntington Beach and she was around a year and a half. She would not be putting undies around her head now. However she DOES suck on Maisies pacifier that you left here and gives herself names like baby kitty, t.v. baby (huh?), and her new one “santa baby.” And she crawls around sucking on that thing. She thinks it gets her out of doing her chores…like cleaning her room or helping me with dishes. Cause if she’s a baby, she can’t do these things, because, well, she’s a baby.
