Why do we wear what we do?

I often ponder that question in regards to my kids. Why do I bother dressing them? The amount of laundry I have to do is staggering! It would be so much easier if I declared this casa a nudist colony. I'm sure the neighbors would love us. Don't you agree?

At the moment I am focused on a certain article of clothing. Well, not so much me as Little Dude.

When getting out of the bath the other night he asked why we wear underwear.

Knowing I would have to choose my words wisely, I wasn't quite sure how to respond. The boy really would run around naked if we let him! I finally decided to say we wear underwear because it's in the rules. I know, a cop out answer, but he seemed content with it. Until he had to one up me with a better explanation.

If you don't war underwear at your job and have to go really bad, your pants will get wet.

Well, now. That makes perfect sense!

So next time you have to leave the house, make sure you put some underwear on before your pants.

Until next time....

underwear are also great protection for boys against zippers ;)

Oh, that's too funny! My boys just don't see a reason for any clothes!

So funny! I love kid logic. I'm also considering instituting a clothing optional policy here. There's far too much laundry. :)

LOL! That's pretty logical thinking though!
