Man Jeans!

Whoever gave little boys permission to grow up? I know I constantly tell them to learn how to take care of themselves, learn to work, learn to cook, learn to do your own laundry, ect. ect..

But why oh why did they start listening to me? Who gave Tyler permission to grow into man jeans?

It used to be so easy to buy clothes for my oldest two boys. They started out in size 2T slim wranglers and through the years they just graduated to a size larger each year. Made it real easy to shop. Fashionista's they are not. So when did Tyler decide to mess with my system? He was doing quite fine in 16 Slims, until I realized one day that Mason was wearing them also. And Tyler informed me that he did not have ANY jeans that fit him properly. Yes the boy is growing into this huge Teen/Man Thing. Now he is exactly two sizes smaller than his daddy. Thats Right. Alan in 30x34, and Tyler is 28x32. The jeans fit great with his mansized feet, and mansized hands, and that head of his oh my it sure is big! But come to think of it, the head was big to start with.

It all scares me sometimes. My oldest baby is now counting down the days until he gets his drivers permit! Eeek! Don't they know they shouldn't give small childern permission to drive large motorized vehicles on public roadways? Before you know it he will decide to up and buy a house or something, equally adulty. In case you all can't tell I am slightly freaked out by all this growing up business.

This too shall pass..... Once they're an adult, then they can't get any more "adulty", right?!! Oh well. Soon they'll have kids, and you'll love having granchildren... I'm so good at comforting, aren't I?!!

Oh Yes Neena you are. The more adulty I get the more like a child I become.

I am not looking forward to those times. Teala is a little small for her age. She hates it but I don't mind. It still feels like she is a little girl, Just a very mature little girl. Neena is fine with it because she is going and getting all "adulty" herself. The nerve of our little babies.

What, it's not my fault! Not that I mind...

Yeah, I totally get you. I'm terrified of the next big adulty thing.

I know it is hard to accept. But you would not want to have all your kids stay home will you all day everday of your life. Also if you never let them become Adults then you will never have Grandkids.
