True =) I was thinking about my bra-life-history of buying 34Cs and immediately making every dimension as small as the bras would let me, while at the same time being confident I was wearing the right size because I knew there was no way I could be a 36-anything (and 32-anythings were only available in regular stores in A or B cups as “training bras”) even if that’s what everyone around me seemed to be wearing. (For the record, now I know I’m a 30E, but was probably smaller still in high school, and we would have had no idea where to get the right size way back then.)
Basically, if the first thing you do, every time you buy a bra, is adjust the straps to the smallest length and fasten the hooks on the innermost set, then your bras are too big.
A bra that fits will fit with the straps at the longest length and using the outermost set of hooks—the whole reason for the adjustability being to take in the slack that develops as the bras age and lose their elasticity.
He says it was a complete accident because he was being silly and the kid wasn’t paying attention but the kid understood and didn’t have a problem with it. Of course, being 6 years old, we don’t entirely know if that’s really how it happened (for either of them), but he’s still having tech privileges revoked for a while to make the point that not paying attention to what you’re doing can have results just as bad as doing things maliciously…
Spent the last hour making dust covers for all the things that will be denied as punishment, and also trying to figure out how to explain to a not-quite-six-year old who has spent very little time around other kids that, no matter what the other kid is doing, you don’t hit them, and, if it really was an accident, you have to say ‘sorry’ loudly and persistently until everyone around knows you mean it, because if you don’t tell your story, everyone else will tell the story they think happened.
We did not teach The Child to hit people, of course.
We apparently also forgot to teach him about not hitting people.*
Fun to get a call from the vice principal on his second day of his second week of school ever.
*And all the other permutations of bodily contact, like how, if it was a genuine accident, you have to apologize, immediately, and so other people know it, or, if the other kid started it, you have to let it be known verbally, to that kid and to others, that you don’t want to be part of whatever the other kid is doing. (We don’t know the whole story, but there is the fact that the other kid didn’t say anything to anybody, either, and it was only when the teacher noticed the red spot that she asked him what happened.) You don’t think about teaching all the ‘rules’ of social interaction when you yourself are an introvert who would rather not be around people…
