Mom Jeans Graduate

Do you remember my little 'issue' with jeans? And my kids' evaluation of my Mom Jeans? Well, it seems I have moved up in the world of teen-approved-fashion!

I went shopping last weekend and found a pair of jeans which I liked. They fit me in the waist. And they were $15. As long as the waist-size and price criteria are met, (Which doesn't happen very often!) I will buy a pair of jeans.
So Monday after work I put on my new jeans and went to the kitchen to start making dinner. Almost immediately, Joshua asked, "Did you get new jeans, Mom?" Elizabeth looked up from what she was doing and commented, "Oh. I like those!" And I responded, "Why yes, I did. You do?"
Elizabeth said, "They look like jeans I would wear. They're nice." And I sputtered, "You would? But, look. The waist goes all the way up to my waist!"
She said that was OK. Because they aren't baggy in the thigh, and they kinda flare out at the bottom. She would wear them if they fit her.
So I asked the question. The big question. "You mean, these aren't Mom Jeans?" And Elizabeth said with a smile, "No. They aren't. Looks like you've graduated out of Mom Jeans."

My kids are so proud of me.

And I feel so cool. *wink*

Jodi - It surprised me when 1) the kids noticed what I was wearing, and 2) they liked it. Yeah, I scored! *wink*
(I thought you'd understand my perspective on the snow.)

Patricia - Yeah. You're right. Did I mention I was using birthday money to buy the jeans? ;o)

Angela - Marshall's.
Not the Marshall's that used to be Hudsons. The one that's associated with T.J.Maxx.
Marshall's and my local consignment shop are my two favorite stores!

Nichole - Gotta treasure it when I get it! haha

Deirdre - Sorry. I hope it didn't hurt. (The cracking!)
