One of my kids is very finicky, when it comes to clothing. So much so, that I will ask my other kids to take her shopping, so I don’t have to deal with it! Just recently, I broke down, and took her clothes shopping. Lordy lord we found 4 pair of pants that FIT!!!
OK. I say to mayself, “Take a step back, . She’s 12, you’re …what ever.” So I say to her, “GIMME those pants!” I put them on, and they fit! I was actually thrilled to have a new pair of pants, LOL! I decided to wear them to work today, on the air in the city at 3, meeting after work, I look pretty damn good in these used, new, hot pants! I get off the train, walk upstairs to 34th and 7th, where I normally walk to 57th street, to have my pants fall down around my ankles! They stretched out so much that I had to run into some random store and buy a new pair, and beg the manager to let me use the bathroom to change! I had to pick a store with no dressing room. Of course, I did.
So, the bottom line is, my daughter was right, and sometimes we have to believe our kids even when instinct says , NOT to. :- ) I learned the hard way today! Although, I made a lot of friends at 34th and 7th!
