My hubby called and advised that he would not be home in time to suit up Fuzzy for football practice. Today is the first day of football practice in FULL pads and practice uniform.
I have to do it.
Okay. At 5:10pm suiting up for football began.
Fuzzy drops his drawers and rips off his shirt, he is now stark naked.
Girdle, with hip and butt pads. Check.
Under Armour t-shirt (specifically made for hot days under your football gear). Check.
Football practice pants, with thigh and knee pads. Check.
Tuck shirt into pants. Check.
Lace up pants front and secure belt. Check.
Rib cage protector jacket. Check.
Shoulder pads. Check.
Practice jersey. Check.
Helmet with chin strap and mouth piece ready to go. Check.
Okay, we are finally done. Fuzzy prances around, for his brother, his grandpa and me. Shows us his planned end-zone, post-touchdown victory dance.
Then, this darling child/man turns to me and says, "Hey, how do I pee in this stuff?"
I say, "Duh, you have to take off all the bottom layers, just like normal, but now you have THREE layers, why??? Please don't tell me you didn't pee before we did all this and NOW you DO?"
"Sorry Mom, I gotta go!" says Fuzzy.
Let me just say that I guess doing it all TWICE means I am really well practiced for tomorrow!!!
These are surely the moments of my life now, that I will miss the most when they are all grown. I love sharing this way, I will never forget them!
Fuzzy is at practice with his dad and the house is buzzing with some new kids. Never a dull moment around here.
Hammer and his two friends are playing video games.
Pumpkin Muffin and hers are making poetry books at the dining room table and singing the new Hilary Duff song, "Wake Up" over and over and over for my musical enjoyment!
I will miss this, I will miss this, I will miss this, someday! ;-D
