Welcome Fall. Or Autumn. Or whatever your name is.

Who am I kidding?

We don't have seasons in these here parts of south ga. We have summer. And then a little more summer. Then a few days of beautiful weather ruined by the sand gnats and then we're back to pre-summer again.

But darn it. I'm going to celebrate it nonetheless.

College football is in the air and this means it's time to change out the clothes from summer to post-summer (known to some as "Fall"). I don't know why I do this. It's pointless really. We won't be looking at long sleeved shirts for a good 2 months, and hoodies, OH MY DEAR PRECIOUS COZY HOODIES, not til Christmas....or after.

For some reason I feel the need to torture myself.

And I don't do this with my own clothes because the sad reality is that my little closet holds all seasons of my clothes. [insert violin music here]

Someday I will purchase clothes to update my 2004 wardrobe, but for now, it's the babies that come first. [insert "Hero" by Mariah Carey here]

So in my torturous assignment today, I got down 42 tubs of clothes out of the attic. And since the Twinzies are growing like weeds, I figured I should get out their current size clothes and their next size up. Of all seasons. And then wash them. All 42 loads worth. And then fold them. All 42 tons of them.

And really, I know I shouldn't be jealous of the wardrobe of a certain 17-month old.

But 30 PAIRS OF PANTS?????

Is it really necessary to house 30 pairs of 18mo size pants? Does Wild Man really need to wear a different outfit EVERY SINGLE DAY FOR AN ENTIRE MONTH?

I mean, I know he's a fashion-forward kind of guy...

I guess the hand-me-down stars were aligned when this pretty stack of 30 PAIRS OF PANTS (have I mentioned that yet?) came together and landed in one's wardrobe.

Since he owns about 27 more pants than I do, I think I may sell them on eBay as "Celebrity Child Sells Pants for Charity" because we know all those Jolie-Pitts offspring gotta do something with their pants, right? And why wouldn't they want me to make a pretty penny off their name, right?

And maybe, just maybe, I'll take that money and go buy myself a hoodie.

Circa 2010.

And then wait til it cools off in 2011 to wear it.

Don't worry my friend. You are not the only one who can hold all season's of clothes in their closet. And you know I don't have a walk-in!
