Funny...no...ridiculous story

So we went to the Gap today (Henry, Ella and I). We were in the men's sale section and there was this huge row of shirts - well, there were 2 rows - one on top and one on the bottom. I was engrossed in my searching and I sort of heard Henry say "this one is perfect for me." A moment later I look over to him and he is almost completely undressed (everything was off but the diaper, which was about to come off). I guess he was going to try on the shirt that was perfect for him or something. This is where the ridiculous part comes in. I go to put his clothes back on and his shirt was no where to be found. I searched and searched and SEARCHED through those blasted shirts and his shirt was GONE. I kept shaking them around in hopes that it would fall to the bottom, but it was not there.
We had some other shopping to do in the store and so we went around for a while and every once in a while I would come back to that spot and shake the clothes around and look under and over the shirts and still - NO SHIRT! I even asked a bunch of the sales associates, but they didn't know anything about it. So the whole time we were at Gap, Henry was wearing jeans, flip flops and no shirt. I wonder what people must have though of me!
Finally at the end I said a prayer (per Adam's request) and that time I was blessed to find his shirt under the other shirts. I guess it finally fell through.
Isn't that just the most bizzare thing? It was so ridiculous, I tell you!

Okay, that is a really funny story! I was expecting you to say that one of the sales people hung it up, or someone bought it or something! Glad your little naked man left the store fully clothed:)

That is too funny. Especially the part about "this being perfect for me!" Glad you wrote that one down! Still smiling!

That is so funny! Henry is really a special little spirit who knows exactly what he wants and how to figure it out. May I suggest that he has been shopping for clothes enough with his Mom that he has an idea of how to check it out?? A lesson on dressing rooms might come next! I'm glad he found his special dinosaur shirt!(And you didn't get any strange looks from shoppers wondering about the mom who lets her little guy go shirtless!)
Love you both,
Mom

That's pretty funny Amy! I would've been so mad at Will if he did that. I'm glad you found the shirt.

That is funny! They sure know the most opportune times to do things like that, don't they. Thank goodness it became a good experience, helping his testimony of prayer grow at such a young age.

That is such a great story. One of those that you laugh more after the fact than during! Your two little ones are so cute! And your haircut is adorable. It looks just right on you!

I love this story. Thanks for telling it. Glad you were able to dress him without having to buy another shirt just to leave. We have some shirts that Scott grew out of, should I bring them when we get there in 2 weeks?

Can you believe that, just two weeks?
