It's not easy being green....

especially when you're a pair of socks...

or a shirt...

or a tiny pair of Baby Gap jeans...

And yet, green they all were, because somehow a green Crayola crayon decided that today was the day it would sacrifice itself to the dryer gods.

Luckily, most of the clothes that are now sporting bright green spots were Little Man's. Not so luckily, all of them were his new fall clothes. Only a few of my clothes and Js were damaged, but now I think I have 3 pairs of socks left and no workout pants.

My hands now reek of WD-40. Apparently, that's the way you get melted crayon out of clothes. But so many were so green, so covered with crayon that they're now in the trash. In all the carnage was moderate- 3 of Little Man's shirts, two pairs of his pants, all but one of his pajamas (even the cute ones with little monkeys on them) and every pair of socks he owns, some of my undergarments and most of my socks, one of my shirts, and my only pair of workout pants.

It could have been worse. There could have been more our our stuff, that's much more expensive to replace, or so J says. Somehow that isn't helping me feel better right now.

This week is all about spoiled clothing! Yesterday, my cat took a dump on a sweater I was air-drying. I had no idea he disliked blue turtlenecks so much.

Sorry to hear that the green crayon claimed so many victims. Maybe a trip to Banana Republic would make you feel better? :)

Yes. Shopping. Lots of shopping.

But still, you could've totally started a trend. The college students would've followed you like lemmings.

mmm- shopping is sounding pretty good right now. Luckily, there are some sales coming up.
