K’s Girl Jeans

on October 31, 2012

I love clearance racks. I have a serious obsession with finding good deals. It works out well living in Texas because we probably only need non-Summer clothes about 2-3 months of the year. (We do a lot of layering in those months.)

The only problem I have discovered with clearance rack shopping for the kids is that all the boy and girl clothes tend to be all mixed in together…

You’d like to think it would be idiot proof (pink, sparkles, and bows equal girl; blue, super heroes, and bugs equal boy), but it isn’t. Jeans all look alike to me. I see $2 pairs of jeans and will gleefully scoop them up in E and K’s current sizes.

I swear I saw regular jeans but, in my quest for cheap play clothes, I somehow made it home with K sized girls’ skinny jeans/leggings… Mom fail.

Luckily, K does not realize they are meant for girls. They have been dubbed comfy pants. Comfy pants are usually cotton pants that are only worn around the house or to sleep in. They make great craft pants because I really don’t care if they end up paint splattered.

Painting his “electric punkin”:


I’d like to pretend that this has never happened before, but alas, I have photo evidence to the contrary. Somehow he ended up in girl jeans for pictures at three months old. I didn’t even realize the little pockets had a frill on them until later.

K in all his chubby, cute, girl jean clad glory:


Oh well. Hopefully I learn to correctly identify jeans before he hits elementary school.

  1. I did something just like that last year! I bought Cesar a pair of what I thought were boys black corduroy pants and lo and behold when I went to put them on him they had a big jeweled rhinestone button…oops!!!

    That’s hilarious! We love the clearance racks too. Lots of baby stuff is gender neutral now and sometimes we dress the babies in the morning and realize that our daughter looks like a boy 🙂

  3. Taking advantage of your little boy – tsk tsk. Ahh, he don’t know. Just don’t get him a dress.
