It Seems I’m Wearing My Wonder Woman Undies

posted in: My Life 31 comments

I woke up this morning with a pair of undies in my face, clutched in the hands of my 2 year old son Miles.

Wonder Woman Undies

Miles: Mommy, can you put your costume on?

Me:  What costume sweetie?  Those are my undies.  Did you tear out the whole laundry basket?

Miles: No, your costume was on top. It’s Superman one.

Daddy:  Miles is that Mommy’s Wonder Woman costume?

Miles:  Yes, it’s Wunner Wummin.  Will you wear it?

Me:  Sure honey, as long as they are clean.  But you know, Wonder Woman has stars on her undies, not stripes.  No, I will not wear dirty underwear for my son and yes, he totally could have gotten them from the dirty hamper.

Miles:  They are Wunner Wummin Mommy.  I know. From the bakket.  He still has trouble saying some words.  I also have trouble spelling, but this time I know that is not how you spell basket.

I think Miles knows the difference between stars and stripes but hey – they are both patriotic and he was so sure that I should have my skivvies scream superhero  so who am I to burst his bubble?

I brushed my teeth as he stood by with my undies in hand, waiting for me to put them on.

When I put on the navy striped Wonder Woman panties, he cheered.  Loudly.  And for a while.

I think this is the only time I have ever had a male actually cheer for my undies.  And I rarely even get a whistle from the hubs for the cotton variety.  Miles, however was ecstatic.

Miles:  Mommy you are Wunner Wummin under your pants!  You are Wunner Wummin! Yay!

Isn’t that the truth?  I am Wunner Woman and so are you and I’m damn happy that someone noticed today!

    That’s hilarious! Now, let’s just hope he won’t reveal your super hero identity when you’re in public today!!

    Love it. My daughter loves my Superman tank (I have matching thongs, but I only wear those for my DH) and likes to tell me I’m Superman when I wear it to bed.

      My husband might actually cheer out loud if I wore a Superman thong. Or any thong for that matter. You rock. Your husband is a lucky man to have a suoerhero for a wife who wears a thong.

    Best. Post. Ever.

    I laughed out loud while reading it and then read it to the hubs who also got a big kick out of it.

    Thanks so much for bringing some sunshine to my day!

    • January 7, 2011 Brittany

      Thanks sweetie! Love to bring the sunshine. Funny, the undies helped. I had a good day with all these powers :)

        Perhaps I’ll have to find my own “Wunner Wummin” undies for days when I could use a little extra pep in my step. :)

    Can I borrow your kid? I’d love to be Wonderwoman instead of “that old bag who makes me snacks.” Adorable story.

    Awesome. And I own those panties…DH hates them.
    My daughter LOVES Supa Man. First it was Supa Bunny…which lead to Supa Daddy. Never Supa Mommy though. Sad Face.
    But your little guy sounds delightful.
