Well, I am on the road to recovery, just in time for others in the house to get sick.
Isn't that how it always is?
I actually spent Thursday shopping for all new pants for Josh.
57/365 (2/26) The Great Pants Mystery of 2009
Now really. I don't mind shopping. Some might even say that I enjoy shopping. I don't even mind replacing things for the kids as they wear them out...goodness knows, the knees in pants aren't what they used to be.
But, this particular shopping trip was not one due to any growth spurt on Josh's part, but rather a great mystery in our household.
You see, Josh started out the school year with 10, maybe even 12 pairs of pants. Plenty enough to see him through the school year, holes and all.
But, yesterday, I noticed that Josh was once again wearing the same pair of pants that he had been wearing for the last several days...and I told him he should go put on another pair of pants.
Well, pretty soon Josh is walking around the house with NO pants at all. Yeah.
"Dude. Where are your pants?"
"I don't have any."
"You don't have any?" (insert suspicious, squeaky voice here.)
Sure enough, after searching his bedroom, under his bed, in his closet, and through all the laundry, Josh in fact only has ONE pair of pants.
And he does not know where they have all gone.
Has he been coming home pantless and I just haven't noticed?
Where does 10 pair of pants disappear to?
Has the dryer got sick of stealing socks, and moved on to bigger and better?
I just don't know.
But, please, if you have seen Josh's pants, send them our way!
