Nightie Nites

The other night, as we were driving home from church, a commercial came on the radio for Nightie Nites (http://nightienites.com/) Plus Size Lingerie (Tagline: Curves are beautiful at Nightie Nites). It sounds like a pretty tasteful store and nothing about the commercial was objectionable. There was silence from the back seat. I should've known to be suspicious. During the next commercial, the following conversation began:

Will: Mom, why don't we EVER go to Nightie Nites?

Mom: Well, why would we?

Will: I want to go there.

Mom: Why?

Will: I want to see what they have there.

Mom: Honey, all they have there are ladies pajamas.

Will: THEY DON'T HAVE TOYS?!?

Mom: No.

Will: Why don't you go there, since you're a lady?

Mom: Well, their "pajamas" won't fit me. They're made for ladies who are just a little bigger than me.

Will: Oh.

The end, or so I thought. Then today, as we are eating lunch...

Will: Mom, if you got just a LITTLE bigger, then would you go to Nightie Nites?

Mom: Maybe.

Will: Mom, why do you have to be BIG and BEAUTIFUL to go to Nightie Nites?

I wondered which of my qualifications he was worried about. But I just laughed and changed the subject.

Merry Christmas Flanigans! I have no smart comment, but I LOVED this story. Totally cracked me up.
Best of luck with the potty training. We've had times of the same issue here. I just push through, because what else can you do.

I am catching up on your blog and I am crying I am laughing so hard. I just LOVE Will stories, and Sophie stories. I actually read these last few stories to my brother and sister and siblings-in-law! Hope you all had a Merry Christmas!
