Going Commando

Yesterday was Joe's kindergarten check up. Our pediatricians office had it set up so that they went into different rooms for each part of the check up. First he got weighed and measured. He's 45 lbs and 46 1/2 inches tall. He's in the 80th percentile for both. Then he went in to have his vitals checked. Then he had his eyes checked and his ears. All was running smoothly. The next room we went to was to actually see the Dr. We love Dr. Bargen...she's awesome! Anyway....she was checking to make sure all was well with him....and then it came time to check his privates. She was so good to explain to him that only certain people could see his privates and she asked me if it was okay....when I suddenly felt so worried that he didn't have any underpants on...you see, he has been doing that lately, not wearing underpants...who knows why...I think he thinks it's funny. So, I had time to say "I hope he's wearing underpants." and she replied "Not today".....I was so embarrassed. I set them out for him and everything. I said "well, now you know he can dress himself....just not all the way". I guess I should of checked for that before we left :)

That is totally funny. Really what's the point of underpants anyway? Good for Joe for being "free" in more ways than one. :)

That's funny!! And Julie's comment is funny too. Now THAT would be embarrassing! Boys are so funny! I liked your reply to the doctor. I would have laughed if I'd been there.
