Underpants Modelling

Persistent shouting bellowed down the stairs. As Nana and I glanced at each other we shot out of our seats to check on Diego. Here we were greeted with a sight that will likely haunt us forever – plus the fact that we didn’t snap a picture for his girlfriend on his 18th. There Diego stood, almost naked, at the top of the stairs, grinning from ear to ear. “Look at my big boy underpants!”

I mean, what are you supposed to reply to that? Oh yes, fantastic underpants you have Diego…

This dramatic modelling is all because he is absolutely thrilled with his recent switch from underpants to ‘big boy’s’ boxer shorts. I mean, if I’d realised how much he was going to like them I’d have wrapped up boxer shorts in bulk for his birthday instead of expensive fire trucks and irritating battery powered nuisances.

Before I had a child I always hoped that I would be able to encourage confidence in some way. I wanted him to have all the confidence that I have never had. I certainly went about this task in the wrong way though. Diego does have confidence, but he has too much. In fact, he has that much that when I tell him how gorgeous he looks, he replies (without hesitation), ‘I KNOW.’ Yet he is also the first to point it out when a new spot graces my face.
My son is absolutely beautiful; I may be biased but he really is. He’s also funny, honest, and kind. One thing he is not, however, is modest, and there isn’t a guide to teaching modesty. So now I have a new task, the next step of our journey. It just goes to show we are all individual, personality comes from within.

  • This Month’s Theme

    The idea of talking about Christmas in September divides the nation, but we’re going to do it anyway, because the next issue is planned for release just in time for the holidays!

    In the past we’ve focused on the commercial side, and on entertainment, but this year we’re thinking a little differently.

    While we are still accepting content on any topic and still love to read all your reviews, we would like to put an emphasis on feelgood stories, things that can open our eyes or make us feel something, whether that’s advice on conquering a fear or goal, stories from real people in the community, celebrations and events, stories of experiences or foreign, far off places, or perhaps something as simple as a warming family recipe.

    Good luck, and happy writing! Content deadline November 1st.
