let me tell you a tale about these pants... no? well tough.
i've been reading The Creative Family by soulemama recently, and one thing really struck me.. how nicely her kids are dressed most of the time! (yeah ok, not the deepest thing to take from it) c'mon look at the cover of the book.. her boys are dressed in shirts that match the trim of their pants! and they are wearing *trousers* not just plain ol' pants... i mean, those kids have a wardrobe, not just clothes, if you know what i mean...
so that inspired a desire in me to have MY kids dressed in nice clothes.
some might suspect that aiming for soulemama-ness is shooting for disappointment ;-) but i figure that she has three youngish kids & is heavily pregnant at the mo, so *surely* that makes it slightly acheiveable?!
(yeah ok it might help the confidence if she only had one arm or something, but we can't have everything..)
so i made eli some nice pants.. see-how can you tell that they are nice pants?
cos only one pair are made of polar fleece ;-p
(the navy pair - ribbed fleece, the others are cords)
and they have those strange little false fly thing that nice kids pants have lol..
and why did he need new pants?
cos otherwise he has to hold his legs off the ground to stop them getting carpet burn ;-)
