It’s now official, my boy child has ruined every pair of pants he owns. Lest you should think I simply didn’t buy enough, he started the school year with seven pair of khakis and two pair of blue pants. All the khakis are worn out at the knee. ALL OF THEM. I now understand why there are kids at his school that wear shorts, regardless of the weather, year round. If the Luke wasn’t so cold-natured he would be one of those kids. What on earth am I supposed to do? He has to wear a uniform. It’s not like jeans where you can just patch them or buy Toughskins. (Did you know Sears guarantees their Toughskins? You can just exchange them for a new pair. No receipt required. Amazing.)
So, I’m off to buy the boy new pants. Spring can’t come soon enough.
