I used to think....oh those poor kids. Their parents don't have the money to buy them properly fitting clothes, so they are wearing hand-me-downs from their older brothers or had to take what they could find. I was wrong!!!

And if you thought this, you would be wrong too. This crap is expensive!

I would have been so embarrassed being on the arm of guy with his ass showing!!!

These baggy pants aren't allowed in our school, but the few times I have seen them, I have had no problem embarrassing the kids, by asking them if they have a "load" in their pants. I only have to say it once....TA DA! What do you know...the next day they come back and their clothes fit!

I know I have to pick my battles and guess what, for me, this is one of those: Samuel, you will wear clothes that fit properly!

I don't mean to discriminate and just slam the boys because the way girls dress sometimes is down right nasty. The short, shorts, tight jeans, slinky dresses, stiletto heals and low.....VERY low tops.....doesn't leave much to the imagination. The image you portray on the outside does make people judge your character, especially at first glance. Is...slut....loose....easy....really the message you want to send? Guess what ladies, if you're offended that men are looking at your chest.....COVER IT UP!!!! PLEASE!

So, readers I have two questions for you:

1. What are the battles you're willing to die for?

2. Do images like those above make your eyes bleed?

I spent a sh** load of $ only for my son to wear his pants around his hips, yes i know i shoulda checked the size. Now this year I spent even more happy that he was wearing his size, only to discover the Skinny Jean Craze and his pants were tighter than mine. That was just as Scary!!! Maybe next year will be the Just Right Size? Hopefully!!

Thanks for stopping by today-- I DO need a redo, tomorrow in bed!

I HATE those droopy pants. Actually, DH works in law enforcement, and he told me that the "saggy pants" trend started in PRISON, where the men who were, ah, "open" to a romantic rendezvouz by other men would wear their pants all droopy like that for easy access. Not sure if it's true, but a story like that should be enough to make most kids pull their pants on with a belt!

This is a battle that I would/will fight, though I don't think I'd die for it.

I see this crap all the time where I go to college, mostly among the youngest of the population there. It's mostly just an eye roll from me.

Charlie will not be wearing clothing like that unless I'm unaware it's happening!

Funny....My mom's friends complain to one another about how teens dress and "how they can't do anything about it." My mom just laughs and tells them that my daughter dresses fine. They ask how I do it and she says, "She just tells her No!"

It's really simple, folks.

I used to keep a pretty pink floral belt in my desk drawer to give to any young man who had trouble keeping his pants up. I too noticed an improvement in the fit of their clothes after that! ;)

I have a 10 yr old son. The battle with clothes has been gonig on at least 2 years. It started with everything for boys having skulls on it! We don't do skulls. And, we don't do big, drooping pants. Definately a battle me and his Dad will always have with him.
We're American Idol fans and we love the song, "Pants on the Ground"!
"Pants on the ground, pants on the ground, lookin' like a fool with your pants on the ground!"

Can't stand to see this when we're out and around!! I like the 'load' idea!! HA! That must be what the problem is!!
