Just because you CAN doesn't mean you SHOULD

A couple of weeks ago, I was in a hurry to get dressed.  As I rushed to grab what I thought was MY Notre Dame t-shirt, I mistakenly donned Kyla’s which was hanging right next to mine.  I pulled it over my head and thought to myself, “Geez, I know I like to eat but what HAPPENED????!!!!”  Then I realized I had the wrong “Go Irish” apparel on.  As I breathed a sigh of relief (and reached for another slice of pizza) I wondered how I could have been so silly.

But you must understand this…  Kyla’s top is a GENEROUSLY SIZED “Youth” t-shirt that is still (after owning it for 1½ years) roomy on her.  When I ordered Fischer Family Notre Dame apparel for Christmas 2012, I was so ecstatic to get something for Kyla, I didn’t care if it was a bit big.  Clearly, I wasn’t wiggling in to one of her standard Size Medium/Size 7-8 tops.  If I wanted to attempt that, I’d need to have a couple of ribs removed.  Not to mention have other sorts of *ahem* reduction surgery.

When I caught on to my mistake, I was pretty happy to take off my daughter’s shirt and put on my own properly-sized one.  I certainly didn’t brag about it on Facebook, or post a photo of myself on Instagram.  Then again, I’m just an average SAHM.  I’m not a wacko TV “star.”
