I've trained him well.


The other night, the hubby and I were watching a little Monday Night Football. The kids were all tucked in bed and we were actually having an uninterupted conversation. (Unusual in our house.)

I was commenting on the uniforms and the field designs of the New Orleans Saints. I said that I thought they had the best looking uniforms in the NFL......it has a fleur de lis on it for crying out loud. It has to be stylin'.






Just in case you're not familiar with them - here they are, in all of their black, white & gold glory.

We debated this uniform subject & I stuck to my guns & stressed my points.....

black, white, gold & fleur de lis

What other team could look better?

And, at that moment, he looks over at me and says......

"All they need are some toile socks."

I would have never guessed that he even realized what toile was.

I was so proud.

He has been paying attention.

(Maybe I could put that in their suggestion box.)
