lonely

So lately Oliver has been telling me that he doesn't play with anyone during recess and that he just sits by himself by the stairs. When I mentioned it to one of my friends she thought I should talk to the teacher...I brushed that off though because I have been to class with Oliver. I don't know what the teacher would even do. And what do I say "make my son more likable and popular please"? No that doesn't work. I just keep thinking that it is just a hard thing that kids have to go through...I remember sitting by myself sometimes at school. He has cousins that are his good friends...I have been telling myself things like that, that make a mother's heart feel a little better.

So anyways some days pass and Oliver and I are having a conversation about it and it turns out. The only reason he isn't playing with anyone or playing at all is...


HE DOESN'T WANT TO GET HIS TWO FAVORITE PAIRS OF PANTS WET ON THE BOTTOM!!

Can you believe that?? Oh he is such a diva about his clothes. How can I have a son that won't play at recess because of wardrobe issues. Holy smokes. I don't know what to do...this brings up a whole new set of even more troubling problems.


You know...I guess with Cortney and I as his parents...this kid had no chance.

Make him wear a bunch of crappy hand-me-down pants. That's what my parents did to me. Problem solved!

shane....I think crappy hand me downs is what started this in the first place. He has ALWAYS worn Cali's kids old clothes...but he has gotten bigger then jack so he finally gets nice new clothes and then he can't play in them.

All you have to do is fold them all tight at the bottom and roll them up...just like we did in middle school...or elementary school...I'm sure you know what I'm talking about...then they won't get wet. Just kidding...he cracks me up!

That is quite the dilemma. I kind of understand where he's coming from. It drives me crazy when my pants get wet too. Yes, I do believe the roll-up is the only solution!

Just let him know it´s COOL to have wet muddy pants. Like Dad does sometimes.

Doesn't want to mess up his pants? DEFINITELY Cortney's son!
