holy jeans

so this is not a plea for charity but rather just information out there in case there are a few of you that have pants 4t-6t ready to go to DI or SAVERS or hand me downs

you see we have this problem with little saylor. she wears pants out at an extreme rate. since she became mobile this has been the case ... oh the things i have tried, different fabric types, patches, and so on and so on. difficult thing. she wears holes in them really fast because of the way she crawls, crutches around and moves. she is so mobile and we love it! but it has a few downfalls including this.

as of late this has gotten really bad. the kind of braces she wears now hit just under her knee and put that much more pressure on the fabric. not one pair of pants i got her for school this year is left now without holes in multiple quantities. the other day she wore a pair for only the 2nd time and by the end of the day they were so ruined it looked like the incredible hulk jumped out of them. many of the pants she doesnt seem to trash are capri or short type pants but its getting cold and as i gaze at whats left for her to wear for the winter i am depressed with frustration and exhausted with shopping and funds. i dont know how to stay on top this ... we simply cant afford to buy a new pair of pants for nearly every day or week.

so if there are any of you out there that know about an incredible deal somewhere on a good and decent looking pair of pants or have some that you no longer need and are ready to hand down please email or contact me.

I wish I had some to give you. I think Shopko has some kind of thing about them growing out of the pants before they wear out, or you bring them in for a new pair :) Maybe you could try that for awhile :) Seriously, what do you do? Maybe it's time to throw your creativity into designing some specialty pants :)

I hear ya! Ethan's PT told me that sears has a deal that if you wear out a pair of jeans within a year they will replace them. I haven't checked it out myself and I don't know how fashionable they are but it's worth looking into.
