Favorite Sweater


I have to say this is one of MY most embarrassing stories.   I really wish this didn’t happen, but it did.   A few years ago, Tristan came home from school.  His artificial eye came home in a baggie.  That alone could have been enough excitement for one day but…  I was totally embarrassed when we realized he left the house with “The favorite sweater”.

Let me explain.  THE sweater that Tristan loved is blue and has this pattern all over it.  I didn’t particular care for it.  Yet for some reason Tristan LOVED this sweater.  In fact, he would hunt all over the house for it. He would find it in dirty piles, clean piles, in the washing machine and in the dryer. He has pulled it out of the washing machine wet and put it on! …

I vaguely remember how that morning went.  I noticed Tristan putting on THE sweater before school. I thought to myself ” I need to change him out of the sweater before we leave because Tristan grabbed it from the dirty pile.”  That thought came and went…and NOW 7 hours have passed!!!  7 hours later, we greeted Tristan off the bus.  Immediately we took him to the bathroom.  I said to Brian, “Oh No!”  Brian looked at me and said, “Oh Yes.”  In disbelief I asked, “Did we let him go to school with THE sweater?”   Yes we did.  The sweater was DIRTY. I mean REALLY dirty he had Spaghettio’s sauce all over it! I wanted to die of embarrassement!   The eye was nothing.  It was the sweater that sent me over the edge. Another healthy dose of laughter from our home!
