Rock Star, Skater or Goth?

*please note Tucker sending the vibe in the middle picture*
I am starting realize how hard it is to dress boys. I feel like I am constantly needing to buy pants for the poor kid, and they are still always short (heaven help me when puberty hits!). Especially in the church pants department. As much as I hate to admit it, the boy has basically been sporting khaki capris for the past month. So when I spotted these black corduroys, I grabbed them without much examination.
Fast forward to the next Sunday. We are at the in-laws' house, doing our normal Sunday morning scramble. Jared is getting the kiddos dressed while I am running around shoving treats and books into my purse. As they come upstairs, I notice Jared is perspiring slightly. In response to my curious look, he demands to know the reason I bought HIS SON skinny jeans. Not only did he break a sweat trying to wrestle our chunky, ever moving kid into them, he thinks they make him look like a teenage skateboarding punk. Whhhhaaaaaa???
My sister in law later admitted she thought Tucker had taken a turn in the Gothic direction.
Upon first look, I will admit they did look silly. I didn't notice how tapered they were when I bought them. Since then, however, I have decided I love them. They are stinkin' hilarious! I prefer to call them his rock star pants. Not only do I like the way they look now, they restrict his leg movement. Anything that helps me catch him easier gets a gold star in my book!
Every time I put them on him, Jared objects. I innocently explain they are his only church pants that fit right now. I tend to leave out the fact that the desperate search for church pants has dramatically slowed...if not stopped for the time being : )
In other news, in exactly one month I will have a 1 year old. Cue baby hunger.......

OH MY GOSH!!!! I was crying I was laughing so hard!!!! That is such a funny story!!!! The best part is that you like them because he doesn't move as much, hahaha. He looks so cute in them and the shirt that you chose for him to wear works amazingly. He is a stud!!! Keep rockin those skinny jeans, Tucker.
