Come play in my world for awhile!

There's so much to talk about here

Let me set this up for you... My daughters like to snuggle up on Saturday mornings and watch a TV show while their father fixes them pancakes. Snuggling up often entails pillows and blankets, and it's roughly the equivalent of building a nest for yourself. This explains the random pillows and blankets.

But look closer... you really have to look... it's hard to see. She's wearing her pajama pants on her head with the legs tied under her chin -- sort of like a bonnet.

This is not part of the typical Saturday morning nesting procedure.

I left her alone and didn't pester her for an explanation because she was obviously warm, happy and content. But when she came to the breakfast table in her underpants with her pajama bottoms still firmly anchored to her head, well, I had to know. We're a little off over here in the world according to me but, for the most part, our pants are usually not worn on our heads.

Let me fill in just a few more gaps so the explanation makes sense The photo was taken the Saturday of her first soccer practice. She was excited about soccer and the day before we'd talked about the game, and the equipment you need to play, and how much fun she would have.

Emily was anticipating practice and put on her shin guard chin guard so that she'd be ready to go after breakfast. Get it? The pant legs tied under her jaw were literally guarding her chin. My cheeks are still a little sore where I bit into them. Hard.

* * *
The follow up to the story is that I was worried about Emily. She is the younger twin (by a whopping 2 minutes). In comparison to her identical twin sister she's often the slightest bit behind. Not in any meaningful way, but when you're an identical twin people look for these differences so that they can tell you apart. And then you get a label: the one who likes purple, the one who plays with Sarah, the smart/dominant/athletic twin. I try to avoid these labels with every fiber of my being but, to a degree, it's inevitable.
.
The whole pants-on-the-head thing didn't seem like a harbinger of good things.
.
The picture was taken a couple weeks ago. Yes, I'm that far behind in my blogging. Well really, I'm that far behind in general, and thanks in advance for not pointing that out in the comments.
.
In spite of the whole shin guard faux pas, Emily took soccer by storm. She plays on a co-ed team and she's holding her own with the boys, and not taking any crap. And best of all she's having the time of her life.
.
In the world according to me she can wear her pajama pants on her head any day she wants. She just has to take them off before she leaves...

First in line, patting myself on the back. THAT makes me happy.

Eh, so she marches to a different drummer, it makes her unique, not different.

We wear our pants on our head as part of a costume in our house! Or underwear....or anything!! I love the post...very funny!

Gibby said...

That is so cute. And inventive, that's for sure! Tell me, did you teach your daughter to "check" the other players like you may have done in the not so distant past??

Kathy B! said...

Gibby, it's funny you mention the "checking" incident! I guess I should've linked back to the "Check please?" post... Anyway, that was the day that everybody got all excited about soccer -- go figure! And no, I haven't shared with them my brilliant slide tackle. Yet.

Susie said...

What a cute little excentric!

Ink said...

Sooooo cute. Reminded me that we used to wear our pants on our head to simulate "long hair" (you know, during the 1970s "shag" phase). Therefore, because my sister and I did it, let's say it is a widely accepted practice and no cause to worry... ;)

Kathy B!...I think your are a totally undiscovered jewel of a blog. Seriously, how do you not have more readers? Your posts are hilarious (especially this one) and your commenting always leaves me in stiches. Plus, you have people following you that I have been trying to woo for ages...i.e., Vodka Mom, YaYa, and Christie Crowder. We need to do more for your blog.

I am adding you to our blogroll today. I know it may not be much, but it is the best I've got right now. I'll also give this matter more thought and see what else I can come up with.

It is amazing what kids do. Mine just turned 7 and is exploring self expression. This means she is going to school in the most interestig outfits, I wonder if the other mothers wonder if I am color blind or something. This morning she wore short pants, wild print tights under them (she did not want to be cold riding her bike this morning) a skirt and who know what kind of shirt she threw on her jacket before I could see it.

All I can say in my defense I was late for work still had to ride with her to school and then the 1.8 miles back to my work. UHG! Please believe me she does not normally go out that interesting we do try to keep it to a minimum lol.

faemom said...

Nothing wrong with being a little different. That's awesome that she's doing so well in soccor!

Zeemaid said...

lol love it. My daughter frequently wears her pants on her head and my girls like to snuggle too with tons of blankets and pillows on the couch. :)

Jonny's Mommy said...

She sounds like a trip! So funny! Love the photo and her idea behind the pants on her head! :-)

Zeemaid said...

Btw KathyB... you're my winner of my 100th post giveaway. If you'd like to email me at kpdol@yahoo.com and let me know where you'd like me to send the bracelet, that'd be great!

Congrats, you deserve it.. you had the most entries! :)

D said...

I guess she's finding her own ways to be unique and different. Good for her.

Yaya said...

That is so cute, and creative, that she did that!!!

I guess I never thought about how it must be to raise twins and not have them fall into "twin stereotypes", huh.

4riddles said...

It just makes me hope that you don't have any boys that you need to teach about jock straps! Who knows where those may end up!
J/K-I love how little minds work!

Semi-Slacker Mom said...

I love that! Sounds pretty smart to me. Glad she doing great with soccer.

Sapphire said...

I love it! So cute!!! And great that she is doing well in soccer!!

Jen said...

that is just too cute and we have been know to wear pj's on our head too and our daddy makes pancakes every Saturday too. fun stuff!

Mary K Brennan said...

Too cute. There's never a dull moment with children. Sometimes I can't even get mine dressed. Wearing their pants on their head would actually be an improvement.

blueviolet said...

My sister and I wore our pajama pants on our heads because we liked feeling the legs flop around like long hair. But, yes, taking them off when leaving the home is essential.

I love how she's all cocooned in that couch!!!

countryfriedmama said...

So cute! And a wonderful weekend breakfast routine.

I need to get someone to make me pancakes while I watch cartoons...

CynthiaK said...

Way to go, Emily! Sounds like she's quite a character. And, I'm a firm believer in being able to wear pretty much whatever you like however you'd like as long as your in the house. I think she's quite clever! ;)

Helene said...

My daughter does the same thing, only she wears her underwear on her head. I think I'd prefer the jammy pants wrapped around her head instead!!

Your daughter seems like she has an amazing personality!!! And she's adorable, to boot!!!

I keep seeing comments from you on a lot of the blogs that I read so I wanted to come check out your blog...figuring we must have the same taste in reading!! And now I realize maybe it's the whole twin thing (I have two sets of twins).

daisigirl said...

That is too funny! It reminds me of some of things my adorably hilarious son does sometimes! Kids are just the best! :0)

Nanny Goats In Panties said...

As far as I'm concerned, pancake breakfasts means you get to wear anything you want!

Thanks for visiting my blog last week when it was featured on SITS!

HarryJack's Mom said...

Oh, no, I've alreay forgotten how I found you, but I'm glad I did :-) We had a few chin guard exploits around here this fall, too, but mine haven't combined all their favorites in quite this adorable a moment ... Happy weekend!
