In the past week and three days my son has put a hole in every pair of pants he owns except for one - the ones that are a bit too long. Funny that he hasn't tripped and fallen in the ones that are a bit too long, BUT he can't seem to stay upright in the ones that fit right.
The thing is, while it was 89 degrees on Sunday, it was 56 yesterday and the high today is supposed to be 61; far from shorts weather. The boy still needs long pants and his are all holed up.
Yesterday I was asking a friend who has older boys about what to do. If it had been one of the girls, I figure I could do something cute with it but I wasn't sure what patch/repair protocol was for boys. She didn't really have an answer, but she did tell me that Sears sells jeans with reinforced knees. Good. To. Know.
I was raised in a home where "we hate Sear's guts" (my grandad worked for a company that considered Sears their biggest competition), but now that I know they sell these (and they are presently on sale), I might have to cut Sears some slack. Sorry, Grandpa.
Oh, and if you are wondering about patches and repairs for boys pants, I also saw that they sell these for $40/pair. Basically, a few minutes of sewing and my son will look like I spent a fortune. In actuality, his knees were what paid the price!
