Negligees and Ragged Pajamas

Cody likes to pick at his clothes. Those who read my blog regularly already know that Cody picks at his socks, but he also lies in bed at night and picks at the seams of his pajama tops. I have resorted to purchasing the Hanes 3 pack tee shirts and having him wear them at night. Why put Cody in a nice pair of pajamas if he's just going to ruin them, right?


Late one evening, Don and I had to make a trip into town. Cody, already bathed and wearing his 'make-shift' pajamas, climbed into the car with us. As I looked at Cody's sleeve, I said to Don, "Look at Cody's tee shirt. People are going to think we are negligent parents."

About a mile down the road, Cody said, "Why are people going to think your Randy Travis?" (Confused yet? I was!) Anyhow, this is what followed...

Don- Driving and most likely tuning me and Cody out.
Me- "Why would people think I'm Randy Travis Cody?"
Cody- "You know...'like that pretty negligee that I bought you to wear'. Randy Travis."

After giving it some thought, I realized Cody was quoting lyrics to Randy Travis' song 'Diggin' Up Bones' that was released in 1987! Apparently Cody thought negligent and negligee were the same thing.

Here's the YouTube clip if you'd like to listen to the lyrics and see for yourself. If not, I certainly understand. :)



This is everyday life with Cody. Our conversations are ALL OVER the place.
