I now know why they invented skinny jeans. They did it for moms like me. Thats right, I decided to branch away from my regular and wear a boot cut today. They were doing just fine until nap time…
I had to walk down the hall where all three of my children were miraculously sleeping to grab my glasses. I even prepared for the journey by slipping out of my shoes so I could tiptoe in complete stealth mode.
However, when I got momentum and made it about halfway down the hall, I realized I had a problem. The extra material from my pant legs was loudly applauding…beckoning the end of nap time. It was too late to turn back, I would have to improvise.
I reached down to fold the material over and hold it against my legs as I walked. It was not working. I just about toppled over into the linen closet trying to keep my balance!
When I reached the end of the hall and stood up to take a quiet breath from this unexpected workout, I could not, for the life of me, remember what it was that I went down there for. I stood and waited. It never came. Hah!
So I made a bow-legged dance back to the living room, and blindly worked on my blog ‘til my sleeping brood roamed out with disheveled hair and rosy cheeks.
Lesson learned: boot cut jeans were made for people with no napping, small children OR severely bow-legged individuals. Neither of which category I fall into. 😉
Happy Weekend, Friends!
