What is it with kid's jeans? Shouldn't they all come with elastic waist-bands until .. hmmm.. I don't know -- puberty maybe - when girls start to get curves and jeans can stay in place.
It is frustrating because I love the look of cute, little appliqued jeans on cute, little tousle-haired girls. But I guess that won't be happening anytime soon because if pants don't fit Lu perfectly then she can't wear them; or as she says "they are too fitting.." (whatever that means!).
But in my quest to get Lu out of her usual wardrobe of frilly, pink princess dresses I thought I would buy some jeans. I have brought a couple of styles, brands and sizes home.. but they won't stay up on her tiny, lanky bod -- which causes her to stomp around, fists clenched around gaping waist-band, curly, blonde hair framing her intense blue eyes as she cries: "I want new pants!!!" But wait I say, let me get this ribbon and fashion you a belt... yet all the belt does is dig into her cute tummy and cause the waist-band to gape even further.
Ok.. I give up. Why should it be so difficult to find jeans for a 3 year old?
