Colin’s brand new pants I just bought him last week:
Me: “Colin, what did you do?”
Me: “To your pants? How did you rip them?”
Colin: “I was running!”
Me: “Were you being chased by wolverines??? How did you rip them running?”
Colin: [thinking] “I’m not sure!”
Although, while I complain about him ripping all his clothes – he literally only has ONE pair of pants without holes at this point – its not nearly as bad as the underwear battle. Moms of boys, PLEASE tell me I’m not along in this battle!!!
Colin: “Mom! I’m ready for church!”
(walks in the room wearing ripped pants and an Angry Birds t-shirt)
Me: HOW are THOSE church clothes?”
Colin: “I’m wearing underwear!!”
Well, PARDON ME, I guess I missed that very important and OBVIOUS distinction.
