Dvn's prank

When I was taking a shower yesterday, Devin pranked me by writing this note and shoving it under the door.

He was just hiding in a chair, though. He hadn't left the house forever.

Dressing Up

I wore a dress yesterday. I never wear dresses. Mostly, I just find them uncomfortable.

Anyway, John liked it.

Devin, on the other hand, liked it, but he didn't like it. Why? Because it was too old school. I looked like I was from Texas. It was too much of one color.

Lots of reasons why he didn't like it, even though he did like it. I'm pretty sure he just didn't like it at all.

When I went to get him from school, a buddy of his scooched over and looked up my dress. Then, he said, "underpants." It all happened pretty fast. I'm not sure what he was thinking, and I might should have backed off as opposed to allowing him to do that. Instead, I quickly lifted my skirt and said, "see, I'm wearing shorts!" Yeah, maybe not the right response. I'm not sure I helped Devin's buddy understand that looking up women's skirts is highly inappropriate. Well. Maybe next time.

Mother's day at DQ

So, we went to DQ tonight and the kids were cuter than normal. Devin threw away some garbage at a trash can that was by our table, and he said, "Oh, that was convenient."

Well, it's Mother's day, and Trevor must have wanted to say something nice to me, his mother. So, he said, "Mom, You're convenient." I must have looked confused. So, he clarified. He said, "it's a comment."

We explained that he probably meant it as a compliment, but it really was more of a comment.

Either way, I liked it.

Later, I gave Devin a napkin. I accidentally tossed it into his ketchup, and he said, "really, Dude?" I looked at him all cockeyed and so he added, "ette. Do you know what a dudette is, Mom?"

It was an all around lovely Mother's Day.
