Why Is It So Difficult?

When I first started dressing myself for Church, I had a hard time matching up the buttons with the button holes on my dress shirt. I would start at the top and work my way down. Sometimes I got to the bottom only to discover that I had an extra button or an extra hole. But in my adult life I think I could count on one hand the number of times I've incorrectly buttoned up my shirt. Fast forward to fatherhood. Lillian's onesies have just three snaps. Just three! So why do I get it wrong so often?

I can do up her pajamas just fine. But these three little devils catch me off guard all the time. More often than I should, I end up with an extra male half of the snap at one end (red arrow) and an extra female half of the snap at the other end (yellow arrow).

  1. I've often wondered this myself. I have the same problem.
