‘Tis the time of the year to dress up, or, in my household’s case, dress comfy. One would think with all the holiday festivities, my days would be filled with bow ties and vests and cute cords and loafers and, and.
But, no. My holidays have been filled with track pants, waffle shirts, t-shirts, and more track pants. I think it’d be one thing if my kids were Bjorn Borg or at least aspiring to be so, but really, it’s just all about the comfy factor with a little “but I have P.E. today MOM” thrown in.
They love their track pants. And waffle shirts?
They unfortunately won’t go NEAR this cuteness.
And where do you think they learned of such behavior? From the ah-mazing Back to School shopping spree I went on earlier this year courtesy of The Children’s Place. They offered, I obliged, and now my boys have been sucked in by the world’s best athletic pants. (Seriously, good track pants are hard to come by.)
It got so bad that when they invited me to come back out for a little holiday shopping, I started counting down the days until I could get them MORE track pants. Four from my previous trip just weren’t enough for the big guy.
And, so, last week, I went back out to their store and begrudgingly passed by all the cute button downs, cords, khakis, cargos, hi-tops, sweater vests (I could go on) and immediately asked: WHERE ARE THE TRACK PANTS AND DO YOU HAVE THEM IN SIZE 6 PLEASE as only a mother of a son who only wears track pants could do.
They pulled their stock of the pants and I bought 3 more pairs.
That should last til spring shopping I think? Then what, off to mesh shorts, I suppose. *sigh*
