There will always be a clothing "issue" when it comes to kids. Going back LONG AGO!!!! I am sure my great grandmother would cringe at a piece of clothing my mamaw would wear. My mamaw the rebel I am sure was a handful at a young age. I am just like her I'd like to add and very proud of it.
These days we worry about teenage girls not being able to breath because their tight pants are cutting off their air supply. DON'T LAUGH! You know I am right. OR we worry that their ever growing young boobs will fall out of their shirt! AGAIN, NO LAUGHING!! ~grin~
This morning as I was "dying" in bed from this cold I heard Superdad tell H, "I bet it took you FIVE minutes to get in those pants." I was amused but didn't want Superdad to know. Him being a guy and all. Protective over the teenager body that H has. I thought it rather sweet. He's such a good daddy.
"Come let me see the pants it took you FIVE minutes to get into H."
She protested that it didn't take her FIVE minutes to put them on. I was trying so hard not to smile as Superdad is mouthing, "THEY ARE TOO TIGHT!"
She comes into the bedroom to show off her skin tight jeans. Yep, that's what they were. Skin tight. She looked nice like always. I am sure underneath her smile she was gasping for air!! She had on a brave face though to not show me the excruciating pain she was in to actually breath.
I smiled and shrugged and sent her on her way. Hey, if she wants to be blue by her second class who am I to protest only causing more of an argument. I let this one slide this morning. I didn't have any fight in me.
It's okay Superdad. Let her enjoy those skin tight jeans while she can. One day she will tire of them and realize that they aren't all that. Thankfully I never liked SKIN TIGHT jeans. I am more of a tailored jean kind of gal. They go better with my leopard print heels BTW!
Since I am fussing about clothes let me start on my 10 year old son B2. (He will be 11 this month.) JUST IN CASE YOU DIDN'T KNOW YOU HAVE A DRESSER AND CLOSET FULL OF NICE SHIRTS YOU CAN WEAR!!! Dammit, why do you insist on wearing the SAME FREAKING SHIRT ALL THE TIME. Over the weekend as I was putting up his clothes. I notice I always fold the SAME shirts every week. Is he too lazy to go through the drawer to get another one? Does he really like those shirts?
I have mentioned this to him before. When he kisses me goodbye in the morning I have sent him to change his shirt a few times.
"You JUST wore that shirt!!! Go pick out another one or I will!"
This week I made it easy for him. I myself took the initiative and picked out 5 DIFFERENT looking shirts for the week. I laid them out in his chair all ready for him this week. I told him to grab a shirt from THE PILE I MADE and he could pick out his pants.
So, yes B2 has TONS of shirts if you are wondering. He just chooses to only wear a select few. I am sure out of laziness to go through the drawer or even open the closet door to get another one.
He is a boy after all. Should I really expect anything else?? ~grin~
While I am at it lets talk about Lil O. FOR THE LOVE OF GOODNESS STOP CHANGING YOUR SOCKS!!!!! I have blogged before about Lil O's sock fetish. She gets it from me so I shouldn't even fuss. She changes SOCKS several times a day. If she is really fond of a pair she will WEAR THEM FOR DAYS!!!!! I am not kidding!!!!
Does anyone else have these problems???
