Scooby Doo, Where Are You?

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!

OK so this is funny because Zach is in the same boat. I KNOW he had more pants. I just asked him the same thing the other day. I told him he had a lot more pants but after going through his closet he is down to three pair and they ALL have holes. When I asked him about the holes this morning he finally confessed that it is way more fun sliding down the grassy hill at school than walking down it when it is time to go in. GRRRR. Now I am either going to have to have him continue to wear holey pants until short season (I think he owns 20 pairs of shorts) or go get him some more jeans. I think we should figure out who is climbing in our windows and stealing the jeans.

Glad you are feeling better.

So I was reading this to Garrett and he told me, "She needs to look for footprints, or tiretracks, or a monster or something like that. That's how they always find the bad guy." I hope this bit of wisdom helps you in our search.

I LOVE the new table. You guys really need and desire that.

Sad that you are sick. Hope you are feeling better? We are all a little sick here too.

What a wonderful note from Micayla's teacher. She is all those things and even more spiritually.

Hopefully I'll see you at the gym next week, if I can get everyone feeling better.

Okay. You caught me. Zane's been wearing them all winter. You can come get them, only they've all got holes in the knees.

And yes, it's a Saturday night and I'm home alone with a list of things I should be doing but checking out your blog instead. Thanks for a laugh!

Seriously? My kids always SAY this, but it's never happened.
I will keep my eyes open for some good deals for you. :)

You may need Inspector Clousseau to solve this one. :-)

Toooo funny! This has happened before in our house, but usually because my kids have grown considerably and I can't believe that they really don't fit into any of them anymore. I make them put them on and prove to me they don't fit. They are always right. *sigh*
