Last week, the laundry aligned and Bo, Rand and Philip all ended up in the same pajamas on the same night. Wen was devastated because his were in the wash pile and so he’s been asking every night since when they could all wear the same pajamas. It’s partly funny/partly sweet/partly sad because I guess this is something that is new to him and REALLY fun – even though I would have thought a 12 year old would be too cool to dress like his little brothers (he mostly wears athletic shorts and a tshirt to sleep).
But, last night, ALL 4 boys had baths and all the pajamas in the house were clean (miracle!) and so I told Wen that they could all match…and then of course we had to take a photo.
Here’s the sweet smile – and they are all looking! I’m going to have to get a print made of it.
Next was the silly face – even Bo participated…
Then the “tough guy” faces. Rand threw up some gang signs and even Bo looks pretty tough.
And then Wes started making everyone laugh.
And laugh some more!
But this is my favorite!
And there you have it – the story of the matching pajamas, thanks to Wen. And Hanna Andersson. (Although I got mine when they went on sale on Zulily for half the price;) They are organic and well-made and I’m hoping they will last being 4x hand-me-downs!
Another funny story from the Smith house: I was headed to a doctor appointment and the kids all said to Wes, “Where’s mommy going?” When Wes told them I had a doctor’s appointment, Wen said “YEAH!” and gave a fist pump because they all thought that me going to the doctor = having another baby! HA! I told them I was not having another baby and asked why they wanted another baby already and they ALL started yelling: “We want another baby” and “We love babies” – it was pretty funny.
These 4 boys never cease to surprise me. This time it was wanting to wear matching pajamas (at 12) and loving babies so much (even when the baby of the house takes me away from being with them some when they need me). I was especially thankful for these 2 particular surprises and am looking forward to the next one to get me again.
