So, around last January I had to go buy new jeans for S, as he suddenly had about 5 pairs of capri pants and for some reason, he actually knew this wasn’t the current fashion and didn’t want to wear them anymore. (Not that I blame him.)
Within weeks, there were holes starting in those jeans and I almost couldn’t believe it. But you know, we are talking about boys.
Unfortunately, the jeans did not patch themselves no matter how much I begged, and to add insult to injury, the holes kept getting bigger.
I know! I couldn’t figure it out either.
No, seriously. I couldn’t figure out what had changed. And by now, every single pair of jeans or pants that the two older boys owned had at least one holey knee, but usually both.
Then about a month ago, I was sitting on the couch, nursing the baby after dinner one night and it finally dawned on my little pea brain how exactly the boys destroyed their jeans so very quickly.
Seriously. I’m usually fairly observant.
