Kids clothes

So I had to post this quick blog because I was laughing so hard and I am usually really bad about writting down funny things that my kids say. In the last few days I have been thinking a lot about how my kids match their clothes. I used to care, but with 4 I don´t really care anymore unless we are going somewhere special or to church. Jacobs´favorite thing to wear is a pair of camo shorts and a camo tshirt. They are different shades of green and styles, but he insists on wearing them together. When I get a chance I´ll take a pic and post it. Lauryn does pretty good probably because most of her clothes I bought to go together. Aitana on the other hand has a plethera of hand me downs so her outfits can get pretty crazy. Anyways back to the funny comment. We were getting clothes for Aitana today and she said she wanted to wear "hot pants." Well my definition of hot pants is tight short shorts (usualy worn in the 80´s, but I have spotted them way too much here in Spain!) She obviously was refering to long pants, but it made me chuckle because unless she sneaks them when she is a teen, she will never wear hot pants!

Clothes can be such a sore subject. At the same time, their idea of what "matches" is so different. It makes you wonder sometimes.

That is so funny. It's kinda like Kate Draper wanting to ride on the back of a motorcycle in "sexy clothes." a comment she made a long time ago that Carrie said would never happen. ;)

I love it! Hot Pants! I'm laughing so hard!

Girls are such high-maintenance. I'm terrified of having a daughter - just keep the boys'a'coming, please!
