The next one of you with underwear on your head is getting a time-out!

These are words that my friend Kristi never thought she'd hear come out of her mouth.

Imagine, if you will, 5 children running around wearing little boys' briefs on their heads like hats, even after being repeatedly told to take said underwear off.

(Clean underwear of course)

We're not sure who exactly started this fashion show, and I'm not sure we really wanted to know.

The five children in question (my 3 girls, and Kristi's 2 boys), however, thought it was pretty fun.

We thought it was pretty funny.

Especially since after Kristi made the time-out threat, the only child who dared to attempt the underwear-on-head trick was Becca.

Whoops. Hard to enforce a time-out for a one-year-old.

We have no photos of this little escapade with which to blackmail our children in the future, mainly because running for the cameras would probably just have given the impression that we endorsed such a thing. Although I'm sure the laughter we didn't try too hard to hide probably defeated that anyway.

Oh well, it was probably one of those 'you had to be there' moments, but too priceless not to blog about! :)

Oh my! I was waiting for the part where you said, "Ron joined in on the fun and put underwear on his head!" :)

Btw, tag, you're it. There's something for you on my blog.

I love it!!! Too funny. Motherhood causes things to come out of our mouth that we never ever dreamed we would have said, not in a million years. That is one of the reasons I love being a mom so much!

Too funny!!! I can see the picture in my head of them doing this. I do have a black mail pic of when Christopher had done this.

Oh, man . . . this made me laugh out loud. It sounds so typical . . . I have two boys and I'm not even going to talk about some of the stuff they have done over the years.

I'm late getting out to visit all of the participants. Sorry! It was a crazy week!

Don't forget that you can still enter a post for this week's Carnival which is being hosted at All Rileyed Up until midnight tonight, November 10, 2007, Pacific time.

Thanks for helping to make Colloquium's inaugural edition of the Carnival a great success! I hope you will participate in a future edition! Thanks also for the Carnival link love in the sidebar! :-)
