The world with out kids would be like an ice cream sundae without whip cream and chocolate sauce. Kids just add so much to the world, especially the ever so needed laugh once in awhile.
I wish this story was about one of my children, but its a friend so close enough. Atalia, my friend, and her husband, Rudy, make sure their five year old is content resting in his room, watching tv so they can go and take a nap. They set their alarm so as not to leave Julian alone too long. The alarm goes off, and that is the only sound to be heard in the house.
Atalia gets up to look around for Julian, he is not in his room, nor is he in the family room. They peek into the kitchen to find Julian, with a pair of scissors cutting out the elastic in his underpants and surrounded by ice cream sandwich wrappers. Atalia asks "what are you doing Julian?"
What was he doing? Is stomach was so full, his underwear was too tight. Instead of just taking them off he decided to cut the elastic off. How clever is that? I think I might do that with some of my underwear.
The moral of the story, if you over eat, don't undo a belt loop or unbutton your pants just cut the waste band off!
