High Fashion

On New Year's morning, I was a little tired. I was trying to sleep in. And by sleep in, let me explain that I meant keeping myself unconscious past 7am.

I failed miserably, as Mister Man came bounding in long before 7am. He crawled atop me and gave me a hug before sitting at the foot of my bed, doing who knows what. I tried to pretend he wasn't there and go back to sleep. Within a few minutes, I heard Little Miss fussing that she wanted to wake up.

Logical solution? I sent Mister Man to go wake up Little Miss. Within moments, I felt Little Miss climb onto the bed to give me a hug. I hugged her back and felt something different. I half opened my eyes only to realize that she had on a nightcap.

Huh, I thought, in my sleep addled brain, Grandma must have gotten her new pajamas that have a matching cap. That's weird. After all, the wee ones had spent the past five days with Grandma and Grandpa while my husband and I were in San Antonio (I know, rough life), and Little Miss was wearing pajamas I'd never seen before.

Cute, isn't it? Oh. Wait. The pattern doesn't quite match, does it?

Then I looked a little closer. Nope, that wasn't a nightcap. Not even close.

Fortunately, that is clean underwear on her head at least and not something that had been previously soiled in any way.

I'm still not quite sure what she was thinking. Said underwear is now safely back on Snowy (her teddy bear). And yes, we do have a teddy bear in our house who wears nothing but Little Miss's underwear and some old infant socks. Oh, and a bow tie. Welcome to my life!


Beth January 2, 2009 at 12:11 PM  

That is fabulous!!! She's cute - even with underwear on her head!!!

B. January 2, 2009 at 12:57 PM  

Thank you for responding to my question over at Manic Mom's. I have also had no problems with milk production (it flows quite freely here)and eat well, so I'm thinking it shouldn't be an issue. Thank you for your input.

MaBunny January 2, 2009 at 1:20 PM  

Oh how cute! Haven't you ever felt like putting underwear on your head early in the morning?

Sydney January 2, 2009 at 1:22 PM  

1. Funny! Hopefully she gets the panties on her head out of her system now... and not in college.

2. My brother had a bear he dressed up in his Superman Underoos. He named the bear PJ. I believe PJ is still wearing the Underoos nearly 25 years later.

Cookie January 2, 2009 at 1:30 PM  

ROFL! She's going to hate that story and those picutres in about 10 years ;)

Jen January 2, 2009 at 2:38 PM  

Have no fear...your little one isn't the only one! My 3 yr old daughter also has worn underwear on her head (again, thankfully it was clean) and yes, we have dolls, bears and even stuffed dogs who wear underwear and sometime they are fortunate enough to get to wear other clothes too. :)

Jeff January 2, 2009 at 8:15 PM  

Makes perfect sense to me. And just look how proud she is too. Very cute.

momma January 2, 2009 at 9:08 PM  

what a thing to wake up to. at least they weren't YOUR underwear!!!

(stopping by from sits)

Michelle January 2, 2009 at 9:59 PM  

Beth - Thanks. But you realize you're only encouraging her, right? ;)

B - No problem! Good luck with donating!

MaBunny - Umm no. I can't say that I've ever been tempted in the least. Never.

Sydney - Oh noooo, I hadn't even thought about college antics. And I LOVE that PJ has his underoos still on! Perfect!

Cookie - Yep, she sure will. And you can bet your house that I'll be blowing those up and showing them at her wedding, too (not including prom).

Jen - Ahh, good. It's always nice to know that the kookiness in our house isn't *just* in our house!

Jeff - Yeah. She was proud. A little too proud if you ask me.

momma - Yet another possibility I hadn't thought of. Eesh! Thanks for that imagery ;)

anymommy January 3, 2009 at 3:55 AM  

It's not a party until someone has underwear on their head!

Michelle January 3, 2009 at 1:09 PM  

anymommy - ummm yeah. True. However, 7am on New Years Day... I'm done with hte parties at that point ;)

Karen January 3, 2009 at 7:36 PM  

What IS it with kids wearing underwear as hats?

Michelle January 4, 2009 at 4:26 PM  

Karen - It must be some crucial developmental phase, right? Right? Without doing so, they'll never grow up to be brilliant productive members of society. Reassure me here, will ya?

Betsy January 29, 2009 at 1:18 AM  

How adorable!

Simply AnonyMom January 29, 2009 at 1:23 AM  

Happy SITS day.

My 4 yr old son puts his underwear on his head a few times a week. Whenever I am dressing him in a "pattern" he does not to wear that day, he will put the pattern he does want to wear on his head in defiance.

Gotta love kiddos and their love of all things undies.

Mrs. Jelly Belly January 29, 2009 at 1:25 AM  

That's so cute - I hate to admit it, but all of my kids have had underwear on their heads at one point or another. Thankfully not beyond the age of 7 or so. :)

{Katie Lane} January 29, 2009 at 1:28 AM  

At least you noticed. LOL they look like they match to me! She is a doll btw.

Kimberly January 29, 2009 at 1:29 AM  

Oh my gosh, that is too cute! At least she tried to match the patterns! And she did a pretty good job! :o)

Jennifer P. January 29, 2009 at 2:36 AM  

You must post a picture of the bear at some point--he sounds like an interesting character :).

As for the underwear on the head---what? you don't sleep with undies on your head? It's all the rage in Europe ;)!

Jamie January 29, 2009 at 2:59 AM  

She's making a new fashion statement. I agree we need a picture of this underware wearing bear.

Laurel January 29, 2009 at 3:12 AM  

Oh yes - the stuffed animals all wear unders at our house as well! She's cute!!!!

Eve January 29, 2009 at 4:36 AM  

LOL What a cutie! Kids are such a hoot...

bettyl January 29, 2009 at 5:10 AM  

The bow tie sounds like the perfect touch to any outfit! Thanks for sharing.

Preston January 29, 2009 at 5:12 AM  

Kudos to little Miss and her "creative" bedtime fashion sense!

Astrid January 29, 2009 at 5:32 AM  

LOL! How adorable! At least it matches. :)

Happy SITS day!

mommytoalot January 29, 2009 at 5:49 AM  

Ohh too cute!!

Heather January 29, 2009 at 6:03 AM  

When my daughter was about your daughter's age, maybe a wee bit younger, she came downstairs wearing one of my bras on her head as a hat.

Sad to say, her head completely fit inside one of the cups. She didn't leave it on though, as the underwire wasn't comfy......



Ryan Ashley Scott@Optimistic Cynicism January 29, 2009 at 6:05 AM  

What a cutie! Doesn't every little girl wear underwear on her head for a hat? No? Huh....

Erika January 29, 2009 at 6:24 AM  

Sweet girl!! We've seen the panties on the head before at our house, too. As well as tights, pants, turtlenecks...

Monica January 29, 2009 at 6:26 AM  

What a sweet story. Kids really do do the darnedest things!

Shelley January 29, 2009 at 6:30 AM  


Jeanne January 29, 2009 at 6:32 AM  

It does look like a matching nightcap at first glance....

Anonymous January 29, 2009 at 6:33 AM  

Love it.

This is one of the pictures you'll laugh at in 20 years.

Anonymous January 29, 2009 at 6:39 AM  

Hey, they make a cute nightcap, you can't deny! Glad to hear they were clean, though.

HeatherY January 29, 2009 at 6:51 AM  

Underwear as a accessory could be the next big fashion trend! She's adorable!

Creative Junkie January 29, 2009 at 7:05 AM  

Awwwwww - that is too cute!

Anonymous January 29, 2009 at 7:14 AM  

That's why we have children. They constantly keep us laughing with their innocents. Thanks for sharing.

Lisa M January 29, 2009 at 7:18 AM  

Lol! What cute pics! I'm sure this wont be the first time she will put those on her head either lol. My girls loved to do that! Happy SITS day!

ScrappinAway January 29, 2009 at 7:36 AM  

Funny pics! We have a teddy in our house that wears nothing but a diaper, maybe our teddy bears are long lost cousins!

Jaden Paige January 29, 2009 at 7:47 AM  

You mean it's not normal to wear undies on your head?? huh.


Anna Lefler January 29, 2009 at 7:51 AM  

My husband does this on the weekends.

His drawers are just plain white, though.

Happy SITS Day!

:^) Anna

melanie @ don't expect much January 29, 2009 at 7:52 AM  

That's so adorable! If it's any consolation, we also have many teddy bears around the house who are "bearly" dressed... ;)

Kendra January 29, 2009 at 7:53 AM  

LOL cute....happy SITS day.

Tara January 29, 2009 at 8:03 AM  

LOL! i'm glad my kids aren't the only ones who do that!

Pink & Green Mama January 29, 2009 at 8:06 AM  

LOL!! My kids do the same husband does too sometimes while he's folding laundry. I'm not sure if we'll ever outgrow it around here. : )
Happy SITS day!!

Brandy January 29, 2009 at 8:10 AM  

Maybe her head got cold...

Willo January 29, 2009 at 8:10 AM  

Undies always make the best hats!

Blue Castle January 29, 2009 at 8:13 AM

Michelle January 29, 2009 at 9:11 AM  

I knew it as soon as I saw it. For some reason I have a picture in my files of my (now) 9 year old with panties on her head. No idea why.

Vickie January 29, 2009 at 9:15 AM  

That is so cute! Kids can make the day a little brighter:)

Enjoy your SITS day!

Charmaine January 29, 2009 at 9:26 AM  

Oh good, my son isn't the only one who wears his undies on his head!

What A Card January 29, 2009 at 9:28 AM  

Adorable, and adorably funny! And like others, I'm so glad it's not just my kids with undies-head!

Reeni♥ January 29, 2009 at 9:31 AM  

That is too cute!! Maybe she was watching Little House on the Prairie when she was at her grandma's.

Amy Fichtner January 29, 2009 at 9:41 AM  

Awww, that is sooo sweet!! I am always and forever putting diapers and pull-ups on my kids stuffed animals!!

Sarah J. January 29, 2009 at 9:46 AM

Alicia @ Oh2122 January 29, 2009 at 10:21 AM  


Now save the photo for, um, future utilization...

Lea Ann January 29, 2009 at 10:48 AM  

Ha! Mine puts pull-ups on his head and his brother calls him "El Midgeto" the Mexican Wrestler. Ah, boys.

Barb January 29, 2009 at 11:30 AM  

So resourceful showing there's more than one way to wear panties!

Too cute! At least they were clean :)

Elizabeth M Thompson January 29, 2009 at 11:38 AM  

What a darling! Of course when she hits puberty she may not enjoy those photos too much!

Mimi January 29, 2009 at 11:51 AM  

Hmm, I miss those days when they put on outrageous things like they were the normal routine!

Tabitha Blue January 29, 2009 at 12:25 PM

My kids always use their underwear as nightcaps...I thought that was their other use? lol Cute photos!

Kate January 29, 2009 at 1:05 PM  

Ha- I sometimes wonder where they get the idea to do something like put underwear on their head. Happy SITS day.

Karen (KayKay) January 29, 2009 at 1:19 PM  

How funny! She is so cute.

Ali January 29, 2009 at 1:41 PM  

That's so funny! The past 2 nights I've gone to check on my six yr old and at some point he's managed to take off his pj's--what are kids thinking sometimes?!

Angela January 29, 2009 at 1:43 PM  

Too cute! Just last yr my 3 yr old boy would hold my undies hostage every morning. I would get out of the shower to see 5 or 6 pair around his neck and would refuse to give me a pair!

Michelle January 29, 2009 at 1:48 PM  

Undies as a fashion statement.......gotta love that!

Laura January 29, 2009 at 1:53 PM

So precious! She's got a creative sense of style, for sure.

Ronnica January 29, 2009 at 2:58 PM  

It's definitely a different sense of style! (and cute!)

Kimm at Reinvented January 29, 2009 at 3:49 PM

Katie January 29, 2009 at 8:27 PM  

This is hilarious, I never tire of hearing about all the funny things kids do! Love that your bear actually wears clothes, ours all all naked!

blognut January 29, 2009 at 8:40 PM  

There is real value in holding this picture until she's about 16.

Kim January 29, 2009 at 9:42 PM  

How cute is that!!!

BoufMom9 January 29, 2009 at 10:42 PM

Fairy Princess Garden January 29, 2009 at 11:32 PM  

Too cute! She wore them like a lady.
Enjoy these moments.

Tranquility January 30, 2009 at 12:55 AM  

Be glad it's the baby of the family who's wearign undies on her head. In my house, the husband is the jokester and has actually pulled this stunt!

Joy January 30, 2009 at 7:44 AM  

This takes the cake for the hilarious/adorable combination!

jubilee January 30, 2009 at 8:18 AM  

Cute! My oldest son used to put my underwear on his head when I was folding laundry. I'll have to dig that picture out for blackmailing him one day!

Lisa @ Crazy Adventures in Parenting January 30, 2009 at 1:53 PM  

Are our children related? ;)

Rae Ann January 30, 2009 at 9:25 PM  

What is it with kids and underwear? If my son sees a pair of panties they are immediately on his head. Mine or his sisters! I guess I could get some really good blackmail pictures, but I'm always too shocked to grab the camera!

Jennifer February 2, 2009 at 12:14 AM  

hahahaha!! That's classic! I hope you save that picture for a wedding video!
