Caden-9yr didn’t want me to wash his football pants tonight. He has a game in the morning. I explained that it was important. They are gross. I’m not sending him out there looking like that. He needs clean football pants.
“Mom. That’s like brushing your hair before you wash it. I mean, you just don’t DO it. It’s POINTLESS. I’m going to go get them dirty as soon as I get there.”
“WHAT? No. Don’t be ridiculous. Do the Dallas Cowboys wear dirty pants on game day?”
“Some of them do. YES.”
“NO THEY DO NOT.”
“WELL FINE. BUT THAT’S ONLY BECAUSE THEIR MAMAS MAKE THEM WASH THEM.”
Mamas… dont let your babies grow up to be cowboys… with dirty pants… on game day….
I also sometimes brush my hair before I wash it. I’m not telling him that. He can’t handle the truth.
