Chicken Legs...Not So Much

My mom is ridiculous.

If you read this probably agree...and you know where I get it.

This post left my sisters and I reeling - what in the world is Mom talking about.  We've known her our entire life - daytime vs. nighttime underwear - what?!?

She enlightened us.  I seriously never knew she did this.  I don't think she always did.  I think it's a new trend in her life (mid-life crisis) started by easy access to the Jockey outlet in Tuscola.  She now can pour over undergarments never before seen in these parts. 

So I decided recently, mainly because all my underwear are shrinking which is weird - why would they all just shrink like that...that I'd try on this idea.  However, I took it a step farther.  I got into Jade's drawer & whipped out his boxer briefs.  That's right ladies, my skinny legged, tiny butt of a husband's boxer briefs.  You know what?!?  They fit like a glove & are uber - that's right uber - comfortable.  I think I may have to buy my own so I don't have to share with him!  I may have to try on his A shirts tonight to see if the combination is even better!

He however was shocked by this new trend.  He came into the bedroom and since they are shorts that are relatively long on me since I'm a short gal, I feel like I can walk around in them openly (until Kylie is in the basement - if it was just Maggie she'd get the treat of this).  Jade's jaw hit the ground & he just started laughing - laughing hard.  Then he proclaimed - that I - 37 weeks pregnant Annie - look like a Muay Tai fighter.  I said thank you!  I think it's a compliment Muay Tai fighters have muscular legs.  Apparently, that made him laugh harder, he didn't describe the junk in my trunk as muscular.

I found this picture here & thought oh my gosh it looks like me...with a goatee!  His belly is SO comparable right now!

Men should have to be pregnant at least once to understand...that would treat 'em right!  He's lucky I think he's funny too & love him despite his ridiculousness.


  1. okay annie ...are you kidding me? your mom is HIL.A.R.I.OUS!!!!!! so glad you sent us over there...and i can see the apple doesn't fall far from the both make me smile :)----and now i am picturing you AND your mom in boxer briefs ;)

  2. Oh, I have worn them before and they are great! I bought dad some and he said they were too little. Anyway, I took them over and yes I agree why don't ladies underwear have that kind of fabric. Even the men's briefs have better leg hole fabric. Designers, get a clue!!

  3. I love both your's and your Mom's blogs! You both have a way of making me smile and laugh!
    It would be great if a man were pg. just one time, I highly agree with your statement! Ollie is due on my sister's birthday.. Feb. 10th. How bout that! Just right around the corner girlfriend! I still have baby Ollie and you all in my daily thoughts and prayers.. You all are so very special..
    Have a great weekend!


  4. Hi..I came over from your mom's are both hilarious!! Looking forward to reading your past and future posts !

  5. I wore my husband's both times I was preggers, but they probably weren't as stylish as Jade's are. And yes! THEY need to experience pregnancy and childbirth! Yes! Ann {{Ollie}}

  6. First, I have known this about your mom for quite a while now, but she doesn't judge me about my petty fear (I'll tell you later) so I don't judge her undies fetish. Secon, I too love wearing John's boxer briefs...He actually likes it, and told me he thought it was cute the first time I did it...I thought that was sweet, but I let him know in no uncertain temrs I would NOT feel the same should he get a sudden urge to parade around in my unmentionables. (GROSS) Lastly, please in future contact me before you publish a semi nude pic of me on your blog, Ok?


Thank you so much for your kind words & support! I love hearing from you & read each and every comment you leave for me! ~Annie
