Dad Picked The Worst Outfit To Send His Daughter for School, No Pants!


There are endless memes around the internet about hapless dads doing their best on the days their uber-organized, always-on-top-of-it wives leave them in charge of the house and the kids and probably a dog or two, as well.

It never goes well in the stories – and in this case, the memes are on the money.

Maryland mom Aliza Friedlander had been a stay-at-home mom for 5 years before going back to work part-time. Most days she was still home to take the kids to school before heading to her job, but on this fateful morning, she had an event that saw her out the door early.

Enter her husband Brad, who was tasked with getting the kids fed, dressed, and to school on time.

It all might have been fine, had their preschooler not decided to pull a fast one, informing her dad that a pair of training underwear were, in fact, “shorts.”

Reader, he didn’t know the difference.

Their daughter, Brooklyn, caused quite the stir at school, which called Aliza. She, of course, texted her clueless hubby in an attempt to figure out what exactly had happened.

“You sent her to school in her underwear,” she said.

“Who?” he asked (because of course he did).

I’ve been a stay at home for more than five years. In May, I started working part-time and this morning I had an event that started before school drop off. My husband stayed home and helped get the kids out for school. Apparently, my daughter decided to wear underwear (not just any underwear but thick diaper like training underwear used for potty training) and told my husband they were “short shorts.” Based on her smile and the fact she locked her door while getting dressed, I’m pretty sure she knew they weren’t shorts!! Swipe ➡️ to see the messages that followed once I was informed of the situation, plus a picture of my daughter in school in underwear and the message I received from my girlfriend who filled me in on what was taking place! At least my husband remembered to brush the girls teeth and clean their newly pierced ears… so there’s that! 🤦‍♀️😂🤦‍♀️😂 . . . #workingmoms #worklifemomlife #headshake #funnymorning #lifeofaworkingmom #stayathomemom #stayathomemomlife #toddlers #threeyearsold #itsagoodstory #lotsoflaughs #lol #todayparentingteam #todayshow #todayshowparents #buzzfeedparenting #buzzfeedparents #scarymommy

Brad concludes that at least she’s dressed. And you know what? He’s not wrong.

Aliza says she found the entire thing funny, and she knows that her husband is a great and capable father – he might just need a lesson or two about toddler clothes.

So, you know – if your husband has ever sent your kid to school in mismatched clothes, you can officially say a silent thank you that it wasn’t worse.

At least they were wearing pants. We assume.
