Ode to Stretchy Pants

I just realized I wore my pants backwards ALL day today; from 7:30am to 11:00pm. Ray wants to know if this can be attributed to the awesome stretchyness of the pants or the lack of butt on my body (Levin stole my butt when he was in utero and has yet to give it back). I had piano lessons in those pants today and ran errands in them. I feel like I had pepper in my theeth and no one told me. Oh wait, I did that today too, except ray told me at 6:30pm so at least it wasn't all day.

Good grief. I'm switching to house coats. They have buttons so there's no way I can wear them backwards all day and not notice.

No pictures... Still computerless. But, not for long. I think I found a new one. I just need to haggle them down in price. I'm learning that EVERY price is negotiable.

Don't buy an HP. I'm going to try returning mine today. Don't believe the garbage that they're on top of the market. Sorry, I'm jumping on every opportunity to badmouth them in preparation for the mean email I'm going to send them today. ANYWAYS, Cali, I love when you blog. I love that you wore backwards stretchy pants. Hey, if it's not uncomfortable, it can't be too noticeable right? I'm pretty sure I accidentally wore a shirt inside out recently.

I love this line "Levin stole my butt and has yet to give it back." Pretty sure I could never wear my stretch pants backwards -- you kids all gave me my fanny back and even added some for good measure, such good kids you are.

But, regardless, I will join the housecoat march with you. You know how I love flowing. You know how I love loose. I'm with you.

Can't wait for you to get your new computer. I second Michelle. I have no experience, I just trust her!

Oh, I hate to be computerless. I fate worse than death...

I love comfortable! I would wear my sweatshirts everyday, except that I then tend to not do hair, or put on makeup... or do anything that makes me look like a human again. I say, go for it!

No one has every stolen my butt. They just kept adding to the existing. Dang.

That's hilarious! I'm with your mom and Susan...no disappearing butt here, just grows bigger with each kid! I'm pretty positive I would notice my pants being on backwards, even the stretch ones...dang! I'd say not noticing is a pretty nice problem to have ;) Can't wait for the new computer and more pictures of Levin.

Cali, don't waste anytime missing it, when your first child steals your butt, the fourth one puts it back on -backwards. Please don't haggle too long. I'm waiting for my weekly dose of pictures.

I always wondered what it was about motherhood and stretchy pants. Then I realized that crawling around in my wool dress pants or sitting cross-legged in a skirt just doesn't work. Long live the stretchy pants!

About a month and a half after I had Millie I was complaining that none of my pants fit. Particularly in the thighs. I offered, "I just had a baby!" and my sister countered, "Yeah, but not from your thighs." Ha! No lack of a behind around here!

I just had another laugh out loud moment reading your post about housecoats! You never cease to entertain me Cali!

I didn't even know you had a blog until today. Your little boy is so cute!

Oh what a great story! I am glad you found my blog so that I could find your blog:) I just love your style, I too have been looking at your blog for a bit and think you are a great photographer. Want to take pics of my little girl? I love that you are organized and you just seem to be such a fun momma to that DARLING Levin. Thanks for leaving a comment. Oh and you gotta love those stretchy pants...I wear mine almost every day and I'm sure I've worn them backwards more than once:)
