Don't these totally look like Children's Department of Corrections pants, with the big 'CDC' stamped across the butt? CDC actually stands for Child Development Center, which is a very fancy name for daycare or what we call "school" at our house. These are the pants that Shane wore home yesterday. What I am trying to figure out is why it is necessary to write 'CDC' in permanent marker on the butt. Do these look like pants I would steal? Maybe, at one time, when the CDC got them, they were super cute pink sweatpants and they thought they might be just a little too tempting for some fashion conscious mom. But I think this is the CDC's version of the scarlett letter: Bad Mommy! No bring extra pants! Everybody see! They probably think they are being subtle by not actually writing BAD MOMMY on there, but I'm on to them.
