"Sam" is my three year old's favorite non-living companion. Sam started out as a soccer player doll, but about 2 years ago he was undressed and his soccer uniform was eternally lost. So now he is just a rather pitiful, naked little doll that Dylan loves and wants to take everywhere we go.
I've always been a bit embarrassed about Sam in the company of people outside our immediate family. We've all gotten used to Sam's nudist condition, but it could be shocking to outsiders.
I do own a sewing machine...but I'm not confident I could sew Sam an outfit even if I had the ambition to try.
So today, while Dylan was talking about taking Sam on our upcoming trip to Oklahoma, I asked, "Hey Dylan, can Mommy draw some pants on Sam?" Dylan was thrilled with this idea, so out came the Sharpie marker.
I'm not sure Sam's appearance is much improved. Now he looks like a little old man that hitches his pants up way too high.
Looks like he's wearing boxers...
I don't know why I find this so funny, but this is just freakin' hilarious!!
