Five years ago when I first put these on Biggest Brother they were vivid blue and in perfect condition. After a few months of learning to crawl the knees were worn pretty thin. Two years later Big Brother learned to crawl. He left the jeans with definite holes in the knees, but still “cool” looking holes. Fast forward 2 more years and Littlest Brother learned to crawl in the same pair. They are now torn all over, faded and super thin everywhere. I am not one to save everything, but I just can’t seem to throw these away. All of my boys learned to crawl in them…what to do now? I thought about framing them, but then I think visitors to our home would really think I am crazy. Maybe I’ll just frame this picture. I am so excited to have a daughter and I know she’ll be right in the middle of everything messy her brothers do, but there is a part of me that is sad to know there won’t be any more little boys crawling in the dirt outside…can you tell I am pregnant? I’m emotional over raggedy jeans!
So the jeans are being replaced with girly pink stuff…girly pink stuff. And yes Amanda, it is easier for me to think of this covered in mud (in reference to a comment Amanda left on this post).
SPEECHLESS. I got this in the mail from a friend (who has a daughter and then three boys). When I opened it the older 2 boys asked “WHAT is that?” Honestly, I have no words for this. It makes me laugh in a really great way. I just keep thinking, “what am I going to do with that?” Not because I don’t like it, but because it just seems so out of place in my house. I just can’t picture a girl in our family…all that bedazzledness (my word) and tulle…WOW. Thanks Angie…I can’t wait to see her in it (and get pictures of course)
