What were we THINKING?

My husband and I, on the same day, both bought shirts for our baby boy.  

I (Mom) bought him this little number:

My husband (Dad) came home with this:

So the question is, what was going through our minds when we bought these?

Was it...

Mom:  I am confident enough in my son's masculinity to allow him to wear this shirt.
Dad:  I am overly-confident in my son's masculinity.  To prove it, he WILL wear this shirt.

Or was it...

Mom:  He can wear it to church.  It has a tie!
Dad:  He can wear it to church.  It is a collared white shirt!

Perhaps it was...

Mom:  The T-shirt-on-long-sleeve-T-shirt look is all the rage these days.
Dad:  The floating-cat-head-over-random-pocket look is IN.

Or maybe it was...

Mom:  Ha!  A NERD SHIRT!  That is soooo Asian.
Dad:  Ha!  Cartoon cats with no mouths!  That is soooo Asian.

It could have been this...

Mom:  Cute!  A faux pocket!
Dad:  Awesome!  That cat is drowning!

Nope, it was definitely this...

Mom:  On's his size...I must buy it.
Dad:  On's his size...I must buy it.


What is baby thinking?

"My only defense is to get fatter."

Clearance rules!! (And no one can carry off the fat look like a baby boy--too bad I'm not a baby boy...)

Oh my goodness, your blog kills me. I really wish I knew you because I don't have any token Asian friends right now. There's a spot open. If you're interested, of course.

I am so glad I happened to stop by today, because it felt soooo good to laugh until I nearly cried. I think I'm going to have to link to this, in fact. (Is that okay?)

Zina commented on my post today and refered me to this old post of yours. So funny. And I get it.
