How to Make an Ass of Yourself Dressing a Kid

Kids are so effortless, even crazy aunts could be parents.

In this corner...

Yep. Even crazy Auntie CBXB could raise spawn.

And because everything about child rearing is beyond easy, I always lend a hand (and my expertise) when visiting my twin niece and nephew in Iowa.

Now as a case in point, I am going to reveal my ten step process on how to put pants on an adorable kid.

Auntie CBXB’s Expert Way of Dressing a Kid

*Starring adorable nephew, B*


Step one: Disrupt playtime to put pants on kid.


Step two: Wrestle kid to the ground.


Step three: Roll back over as they try to escape.


Step four: Incite tears.


Step five: Ignore tears.


Step six: Try to stuff one sausage leg into pant hole at a time.


Step seven: Ignore cries that have now turned into tantrum like howls.


Step eight: Laugh in kid’s face.


Step nine: Forget to pull pants up kid’s ass.


Step ten: Congratulate yourself on what you think is a job well done.

Think I nailed it?

Think my nephew kicked it the rest of the afternoon in his cozy little gray sweatpants?

Two for one....

Pants fail.

See how easy my ten step pants process can be?

Just as easy as having kids.
