Where we live, the weather at this time of year is unpredictable. Sometimes it's balmy. Sometimes it's frigid. Often it's both in the same day. So, for our locals, there is an obvious spring wardrobe choice: wear layers. Take 'em off when it's warm, put 'em back on when it's cold.

Apparently, Bud has caught on.

He got himself ready for bed the other night. It's a new thing he does, and he loves the autonomy and freedom of it. So, when he disappeared into his bedroom I didn't think much about it until he emerged.

Wearing pajama shorts.

Over pajama bottoms.

Over long-john thermals.

Over undies.


A matching thermal crew-neck.

Under a mismatched pajama top.

Under a Sesame Street t-shirt.


Two pairs of socks.

Crew and ankle length.

Of course, once I stopped laughing I had to intervene and fix the outfit.

He forgot the pull-up.

Serendipity strikes again! Charlie has also been adapting to the weather sartorially, but more by eliminating items than piling on the layers...... I will post.....

Perhaps he's on the cutting edge of a new fashion trend? :o) Layering is so in... I can imagine the clothing label..."BUD Clothes" for those who have the will to truly create.


I was wondering if you still needed more info on Gabe's eating program? If so, you can email me at

wow, that's the way we'd dress to go out trick-or-treating or to play in the snow!!

Meanwhile, we're having a heckuva time transitioning Mr. S from long to short sleeves and pants. ::sigh::

We're having trouble getting C to change out of his pajama shirt and into a tshirt every morning. He gets very upset. Usually at naptime he sees his pajama shirt on the dresser and demands that it be put back on. I always give in. Why not? If I have to pick my battles, that's not going to be one of them.

Happy Mom's day to you, MOM-NOS. You're one of my heroes.

By the way, I read a bit more about the autistic young man that the Army recruited -- after you'd posted about it -- and came back to comment on it here, but I guess you took it down.

Thanks for the heads up on that. It was disturbing.

And I hope you got another iPod.
