distressed, the fashion

Have you ever had a 4-year-old make you feel really silly?  I found myself saying, “It’s fashionable, I promise,” to a 4-year-old and an 8-year-old this weekend.  It started as a discussion comparing bruises and “owies” and progressed into a conversation about the holes in my jeans.  When I was 8 (or 4), I was not allowed to keep an item of clothing if it was ripped or had holes in it unless my mom patched them.  It makes sense not to let your kids run around in ripped up clothes.  So when the girls asked how I got the hole over my knee, I told them I bought the the jeans this way… and tried to explain that the distressed look is in.  I quickly got the “you’re crazy” eyes from them.  And I actually did feel silly for paying sixty-some dollars for jeans that have holes in them.  Leave it to a 4-year-old to bring me down a notch.  😉
