You know how women usually hate bathing suit shopping...

Well, I hate shopping for pants for Owen. First, I have to bribe him with usually a pack of cards because there is no way I am going to get him to try on ten thousand pairs of pants without a little bit of bribery. It is impossible to find pants to fit this waist...

Yes, my 8 year old has quite the beer belly. We needed to find navy pants for his First Holy Communion. We found a 31 waist pant but I honestly would've had to have cut off about 2 feet of pant because the pants that fit around his waist are so long. I figured we were desperate and $21.99 later I ended up buying a pair of pants that I was probably going to cut about half of the fabric off. Then we decided to run to Target and just check and see what they had....BINGO....a pair of 14Husky navy pants that only need to be slightly hemmed for $14.99. You can bet the $21.99 pair is going back.
For the most part Owen was pretty good about tolerating having to try on all the pants but let me just tell you how much I love shorts and elastic waist pants.
