I have a funny story, that is just too funny not to share with you guys. It wasn't really funny at the time, but we are able to laugh at it now, so that means we are safe to re-share!
Even before Squeak (our Elf on a Shelf) made his appearance at our house for the 2014 Christmas Season, he sent some Squeak pajamas to our house for R to enjoy!He was so excited about them and thought the "fire retardant tag" was a note from Santa/Squeak--he asked me to read it to him, so I just made some stuff up on the fly!
This particular Saturday, Ryder said "My goal for today is to stay in my PJs all day" Luckily we didn't have anything planned for that day...so it was a reasonable goal for him to achieve!
It was a pretty Fall day out...but it had rained a couple of days before. He wanted to go outside and play and I had no reason not to let him out on such a pretty day! He was out the door in his PJs before I could tell him to change and at the time I didn't see anything wrong with it. Until...he started playing in the mud, like hardcore, playing in the mud.
He came in, I made him strip in the laundry room, and took him straight back to the bath to get the dirt out of his hair, and out from underneath his fingernails!
So...a couple of days later when I pulled the washed PJs out of the dryer and give them to R to put on, this is what they look like. OMG. Shocked. He was SO upset ya'll!!! I had no idea the dirt would leave such a mark and that I would need to Spray 'N Wash them!!!
...and poor guy thinks they came straight from The North Pole and that Squeak made them and we can't get another pair and that these are "RUINED!!!!" Well, they were ruined, but we might be able to find another pair! ;)
Luckily Squeak's helper found another pair at Target a few days later after looking for them online with no luck! His first pair was an 8, but I got a 10 for his second pair so maybe we can wear them a few years longer! ;)
