Side note: I know. But this is the first "side note" in a while, give me a break. Anyway. The side note is that the title is a bit much, but after writing it I read it over and laughed out loud at how dumb it was. So it stays.
I'm writing this on my blog because I know less people read my blog than a status update on FaceBook and it's too hilarious to keep to myself, but too embarrassing to post to FaceBook. Here it goes.
After my run today (in the garage on my treadmill; I don't just leave the kids in the house and take off) I came back in and sat down at my desk drinking some water and trying to cool down a bit. Natalie walks up to me, looks me up and down and goes, "Are those your pants?"
"Yes. They are."
"Oh... So they just had to really, really stretch to fit you?"
Admittedly, my running pants are tighter than any pants I'd ever wear in public (they have to stay up when I run for goodness' sake!) but it still didn't prepare me for that. If nothing else, my kids have repetedly taught me humility. For this I'm... thankful?
