Some days, you realize everyone should have just stayed in bed.
We took the kids to the zoo, where it proceeded to downpour once we were far away from any available shelter. At swim lessons two hours later, we were in such a rush to exit the family changing room that I left my bra and underwear sitting on the only bench in the room. And it wasn't a nice, fancy-schmancy matching pair. Oh, no. It was the should-have-been-retired-long-ago old black bra with the what-was-this-woman-thinking white granny panties. Lovely. After swim lessons, again in an attempt to exit the only family changing room quickly, I walked out without realizing that my shirt was still stuck up under my armpits. So if anyone was wondering who owned the ugly black bra and undies, they probably figured it out after I walked half the length of the gym with my chest on full display. After nap, we had to go return an item to a discount store. In the midst of arguing with the store manager that I shouldn't be held responsible for knowing there was a 15 day return policy when the return policy was nowhere to be found on the receipt, I look over to see my husband holding D upside down - apparently without realizing that his pants were around his ankles. Did I mention that we were also out of underwear for D? Yes, my son's private parts were on display for the entire line of people waiting to speak to the service desk, not to mention the appalled onlookers in the checkout line. Nice. Between that and Sisaye having one pant leg stuck in her sock, all of us in mismatched outfits, and the kids' swim hair, we made quite the impression.
How was your day?
