It’s What All the Cool Kids are Wearing…

June 11, 2013

My niece is five months younger than Amelia and we love watching them grow together.  The first year there was a significant difference in those five months, since their first birthdays, there has been very little distinguishable in their age.  Then Amelia went and got herself potty trained just a little bit before her cousin.


Well, that playing field is leveled once again and Ms. Harper sent us a video with her newly minted song and dance about big girl panties.  “I’m wearing big girl panties, I’m wearing big girl panties.”  It is a little repetitive but very sweet.


One of my best friends is always encouraging me with the fact that I “have on my big girl panties” or I can “put on my big girl panties” and tough it out.  That I have the resources to get through this.


Well, this week, my car exploded.  Okay, really, the dealership told me that a starter coil exploded and took out the communication between my starter and the engine cylinders.  We have been carpooling around on a single vehicle.  We weren’t expecting to fork out for “hybrid” repairs.  Work is tooling back into busy mode.  And I just got a text from daycare that my son is biting.  People.


Needless to say, Harper’s song is spinning through my brain today:


I’m wearing big girl panties!  I’m wearing big girl panties!  I’m wearing big girl panties!  I’m wearing big girl panties!

    I would hesitate to call Harper “potty-trained”. Maybe “potty-training” would be a bit more accurate.

    But she’s wearing big girl panties, Hannah!

    I love it, Mareeka. I’ve never known you to consider big girl panties optional. You are one of the few that show the rest of us how it’s done. ❤
