Part 2: The Case is Solved

It's not exciting, but I found the pj's. Apparently, Freshman heard Caboose crying in the night and got him up, only to find his jammies were soaking wet from his diaper not being positioned properly over his manly package. She undressed him, changed him, cuddled him and put him back to bed, inadvertantly dropping the jammies between the couch and the wall. She did throw the diaper away, so there were no clues. But, I have bigger problems...

I have a Twinkie thing. Some people use drugs, some drink, some eat chocolate. I abuse Twinkies. Lately there's been some personal stresses in my life (because I don't feel stressed enough with 7 kids, 2 cats, a son w/ a disability, 5 schools to deal with and keeping house) and I ate Twinkies ( I decline at this time to give the actual total). My last binge was in '04 when I ate an entire box after learning our son had severe brain damage and might have a degenerative disease (he doesn't). I not only ate the whole thing, but went to the store afterward, bought a second box, and ate one out of it so that everyone (like my kids would even notice) would think I only ate one Twinkie. I resolved at that time to give up my Twinkie-eating ways and deal with stress like a grown up (take it like a man, walk it off, suck it up, grow a spine, etc). I have done pretty well...but, recently, with my new stresses, I have noticed an eye twitch. So, what I am is, a Twinkie-eating, eye twitching, Top-model watching (although I noticed a show called wife-swap the other day while I was doing the dishes but it doesn't start with "t"...) tangle of turmoil! (Impressive eh?) Stress is a funny thing...and if a fake cake filled with white goo helps me cope for a minute, then I say, do cupcakes stop eye-twitches?

Someone put him to bed with his jammies on sideways? or what? She put him back to bed naked? How'd he end up naked the next morning? You had urine soaked jammies wedged between the couch and wall? At least, you found them within a day or your nose might have found them a week later ... what is that smell?

I'm glad that you found the pj's!

Too funny about buying the 2nd box of twinkies and eating only one...sounds like something I'd do!

It'll be ok. Call me anytime you need/want to talk, -k-?

I LOVE twinkies!!! My mom was anti-sugar so I think I must be making up for all those yummy things all the other kids got in their lunch boxes now. I am also embarassed to admit that I am a closet Survivor fan. If asked in public I will tell you that I watch it for the animal scenery (ya right!!) But it is MY time on Thursday evenings. Anything to reduce stress!!! Go have a twinkie and I will be praying for you!!
