you know you're married to an engineer when . . .

Last night, I had a meeting, and left my kids in the hands of their capable, adoring father. It seemed that all was well when I got home- kids had been bathed and were in bed, dishes were done, the house was in order, the hubby was kicking back with a movie and some popcorn.

The night passed uneventfully.

So imagine my surprise when I woke up in the morning and found THIS:

 What? You may ask.  There is nothing unusual about this kid (except the fact that he is the most adorable toddler on the planet) but let's take a closer look.

 No? Still you see nothing unusual about this cutie patooty?
* Rafeeki voice ( you know, from The Lion King?)*                   Loook haaarder . . . .

There! You see that?! Definitely proof that my kids are being exposed to an engineer's ways of thinking! I don't know whether to laugh or cry. Seems that on the night dad was in charge, at bedtime, there was a sore lack of clean PJ pants. All poor hubby could scrounge up were the old worn out elastic PJ pants that don't stay up. So he improvised:
Problem solved! Where's the popcorn?
This is what you get when you marry an engineer.

Haha! Smart guy! I've done the same thing before, except I just folded the waistband over itself and then folded the waistband down. But the pants fell off by the morning, because I'm not an engineer.

Genius. I'm totally going to use that trick!
