Sshhhhh...

Don't tell my co-workers because they will tattle on me, but I'm taking a "sick" day today.  I'm not actually sick, I just need to get a bunch of stuff done in my life today (dentist, back to school shopping with The Boy, cleaning my bathrooms, getting groceries, etc.) and I'll be damned if I'm going to waste a vacation day on that crap and forget about the weekends - I'm too busy doing fun stuff to worry about the toilets.

So, on the back to school shopping thing - how old do your children have to be before you stop buying their "back to school" stuff.   I know The Boy is technically a "man".  (I couldn't even keep a straight face typing that one...LOL! ) Regardless of his age, I feel I should be at least providing the necessities (and a new toothbrush) for him before I send if off into the world.  God knows, today's underwear and sock purchases will probably have to last him awhile.   

Now don't get me wrong, I certainly don't intend to be buying The Boy's undies for the rest of his life, I just think as a mom, it's my duty to provide him with his "needs" for a few more years.  I'm paying for his college education, so what's a few more bucks in the grand scheme of things - right?  

Besides as a mom, the last thing we want is for our children to be caught wearing worn undies.  I'd rather he be caught wearing nothing at all - which if the saying is true "the apple doesn't fall far from the tree", will happen at some point in this life...

Took the girl to college this weekend and left her in her dorm. Within an hour they were on the beach.

We took her shopping at wally world for dorm stuff.

Then it was why aint y'all gone yet?

I didnt buy her undies, I dont want to know about or deal with it. Nah nah nah I cant hear you. Nah nah nah
LOL! Really no undies? Commando in Canada does not sound fun - especially winter!

I don't know but my parent stopped buying me undies when I got my first job. After I had money they sort of said fine you want to work you can pay for your own undies then! That was when I was 16 :) but they still bought me important stuff like food ;)

You are responsible for his undies until he has a wife to take over.
