"Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing. " -Helen Keller

Can anyone explain this to me?...

or The Designer Should Be Shot

I went to get Gabe his second set of clothes for the day after he covered the first set in mud when he turned on our outdoor faucet to create a river (thanks for teaching him that Marty). I pulled out what I thought was a cute pair of longer shorts that my mom had picked up at a garage sale for Gabe. This is what they looked like when I put them on...
If you look carefully, this stylish pair of shorts comes with 2 waistbands. The second waist band (the gray one) is cleverly attached so it extends above the dark blue waistband giving it the look of the hanging off the ass ghetto style of pants that teens seem to think are so cool these days. Please, please explain to me why anyone thought a preschooler needed to look ghetto (not so) fabulous.

But, then I decided, maybe with the right accessories, he could pull off the look.

The ghetto fab ass hanging shorts paired with a b-ass-ackwards hat creates a stylish yet easily *recreatable look any youngster would be proud to sport on the first day of preschool.

* yes, I know its not a real word

He looks so grown up, is what he looks like! Honestly, I remember you pregnant, how can this be?

Don't you just love it when designers try to make little kids clothes look hip? He's a cutie even if cothing designers want to make him look more grown up.

The pants were probably created for parents who dress like that themselves and want their kids to look "ghetto" too. Why anyone would want to look ghetto is way beyond me!
