Out of the mouths of (not so little) babes...

As I write Mr. Pink and the minis are off to the NC State football game. I am going to a baby shower and am glad to have some "girl" time. The above shirt is one I bought from the Kelly's Kids catalog this year so mini#2 could wear to NC State games. Hello- it's red/white. Perfect!
I laid it out last night for him and he said "It's going to make me nervous"...to be translated as "It's going to embarrass me." I assured him it's a great shirt to wear to the game (as opposed to the worn out football jersey I hate). This morning he didn't grumble too much, but I was in his room as he put it on so I had to contain my hysterical laughter when he seriously said, "I look like an idiot!" Again, I assured him he did not and it's perfect because it's red/white. Then I raced downstairs to advise Mr. Pink that he better praise said shirt when mini#2 comes downstairs. Luckily he did by saying, "Wow! That shirt is awesome!" And, although mini#2 may be a mature 4, he is still very gullible. He grinned with satisfaction and that's all it took to happily ride off to the game in his new shirt. GO PACK!

that is too funny! My 5yr old is very concerned with his appearance.... he's very nervous that he looks silly!

ha! I honestly was stunned when my 3yo BOY suddenly became so picky about clothes. Thought it was a girl thing.
