Towel Pants = Happydacks!! ?

Today I decided to work on a strange idea I have had for some time now. With our weather in Australia getting colder now, everyone seems to be, either, getting over or are right on the verge of some cold.
We love going to the swimming pool for lessons and we are lucky - its a great indoor/heated pool but, their 'warm water' is no way warm enough for a comfortable shower.
So today I made a pair of Pool Day - 'Towel Pants' I am hopful this makes the dash from pool to car to home easier. Just need a towel wrap top now!
Its quite a look I am forcing on my boy there but he seems to think its pretty normal. Nice!
If my kids don't end up as circus performers I will eat my boots!
I do love a happy pair of dacks!

This is an innovation - LOVE IT! I'll wish my kids had some this afternoon after swim class :)
PS: what you said is true - you don't even want to see me fired up (LOL)!
