Re: MIL and Longies

My family thinks the wool is just too cute, so thank goodness since that's all he wears!

i didnt even catch that and YES its what she said!

it didnt piss me off that she said it, bc really she is in TX and im in OR and the worst that will happen is we get a HUGE box of clothes that he may or may not use...she shops at walmart so its all good im sure if we were closer then eventually she would be won over by wool and the "new" diapers.

Well, good thing is you'll get some clothes and exchange money out of it! If I knew that would make my in-laws buy DS clothes, I'd do it all the time!

Hope you get some good stuff anyways.

You know what I'd have said? "It's too bad he has a grandma that thinks that way about her OWN GRANDCHILD!!"

We get more positive comments about our longies than anything else - and mostly from people who don't have a clue that they're functional too

Re: MIL and Longies

My MIL has issues with our woolies too! Just wait until she sees DS's latest pics. For his Bday pics he is wearing his super cute various shades of blue stripes wool AK shorties. And we even picked out the pose with DS standing up showing off those cutie putie shorties! Of course!!

MIL can rag on our woolies all she wants - but, soon she will have an 8x10 of DS in his woolies on her wall - and a 4x6 for her desk at work for all her coworkers to see. I can't wait to hear what she has to say about that!!
