The baby undie bandit…


Our infant son likes panties. A lot.

He revels in pulling mine or his sister’s from the clean laundry and wiping the floor, the furniture, and, yes, sometimes his belly with them.

He puts them on his head.

He even tries to put them on.

We thought at first that we could substitute similarly sized items to help wean him of his fixation.

So we gave him socks.

No dice.


Uh uh.

Cloth diapers.


Panties. That’s what the baby likes. That’s what the baby wants.

It’s probably¬†because undies are stretchy. Still, we’re on the hunt for an acceptable substitution.

‘Cause, it’s cute now, but it would be damned weird in a couple of years.


About domesticpolichick

My life is a crazy jumble of sitcom-level domestic hijinks and fast-paced political reporting in the nation's capital. Breastfeeding while doing a phone interview with a senator...yep, I've done it and no, I won't reveal the name. Toddler calling a member of Congress on the cell..yeah, that really did happen. Pregnant in high heels on Capitol Hill trying to chase down a particularly grumpy senator, yeah...that was nuts. But what can I say? I'm just one domestic polichick trying to figure out the work-life balance.
