The mecca of all things wet, sticky, dirty, and oh my god what is that?
I bet that you can remember a time when you were a child at school and thought it was a good idea to test Nathan’s theory that slipping on mud is just like slipping on ice.
Ok, well I do.
By the time recess was over, I was covered head to toe in mud.
Mrs. H shook her head in disapproval, threw me a clear bag with a set of clean clothes and pointed her finger towards the bathroom.
Layers of mud caked on the ends of my pants flung up, down and around the floors as I stomped my way down the hall.
I was making “animal tracks”.
The janitor loved me that day.
I crammed into the blue bathroom stall, carefully wiggled my way out of dirty clothes and slid into the new ones.
The shirt was snug and the pants barely made it to my ankles.
My eyes widened in disbelief as I ran out of the stall and got up on my tip toes to look at myself in the mirror.
I was growing!
When I got home from school that day, my Mom said, “Kimberly, what happened to your clothes?”
“I played in the mud Mom and got dirty. Mom I’m growing!”
“No, I mean, what happened to the clean clothes I sent you?”
“I’m wearing them. Can you see that I’m growing?”
“No, those aren’t yours.”
“Yes, they are! I’m just growing!”
“No. No those aren’t yours sweetie.”
“You mean I’m wearing someone else’s underwear?”
All I could think about was who’s underwear I had worn. Was it Jackie? Was it Sarah B? Oh God, was it Mellisa M who picked her nose?
And my Mom spent her night diligently labeling each article of my clothing with a permanent marker.
Thankfully there are easier ways to label your children’s clothing so that they don’t lose them, or like me, wear someone else’s underwear home.
This year my son is starting school and I was so excited when Lovable Labels contacted me and asked that I would try them out.
