On Friday I almost walked out of the house with no pants on.
And I wasn't wearing a skirt, either. Or shorts. Just underwear.
Now if someone else told me that they had almost walked out of the house with no pants, I would have laughed, but wondered to myself how in the world anyone could almost do that. I mean, come on! It's pants! A bottom to go with your top! Something to protect you from the wind, rain, snow, sun, perverts, hot leather seats, etc. How could you possibly forget you weren't wearing them?!
I'm here to tell you that you can forget that you're not wearing pants.
When you're getting a one-year-old ready for the day, eating breakfast, doing laundry, making coffee, checking your email, updating your twitter, looking at pictures and packing a diaper bag - it can happen.
When you've already got the diaper bag and your purse on your shoulder, your flip flops on, your travel mug in your hand, and a baby on your hip, it's always a good idea to look down. Just once, to make sure that you are indeed fully dressed.
And when you realize that you're not, put everything down, swear in disbelief, have a really good laugh, and put your damn pants on.
