Keeping up Appearances

March 24, 2011

As you can see, we’re not in Kansas anymore! Taking nini up on her offer of frequent flyer tickets, the children and I made a spur of the moment decision to evacuate snowy Minneapolis for sunny Birmingham.  This morning after breakfast the twins headed out to the backyard walking around yelling, “We’re outside!  We’re outside!”  Miss P just walked around barefoot in big circles rubbing her tummy with joy.  We are just so happy not to be cold.  However, being in Birmingham require some attention to our appearance.  Primarily the donning of garb.  No sooner were we in nini’s car at the airport than Charlie asked innocently:

Charlie: “Is it okay if we be modest at nini’s house?”

Me: “Of course we will be modest at nini’s.”

Charlie: “Can we be nudy at nini’s?”

Me: “No, you can only be nudy in the tub.”

Donning our gay apparel was not as easy as I thought it would be.  Our luggage did not arrive as promptly as we did.  On the bright side, however, the airline reimburses the unintentionally light traveler with fifty dollars for necessaries.  The kids went to bed in their clothes and I dashed to Old Navy lest they find our suitcase before we all got new pajamas and a pair of shorts.  So, we do have clothes. Which means there is no excuse for this shocking scene(below):
