mom jeans

we had playgroup at my house this week. one mom brought this pair of jeans that didn't fit her so she was offering them to the rest of us. no one wanted them, so somehow they just got left at my house. i didn't even have to put them on to know that they are the dreaded "mom jeans". check out the ridiculously high rise and the tapered ankle. i feel like i graduated from high school in 1984. pardon me while i pull my skyhigh waistband out of my armpits. i don't even dare show you the backyard. thomas wouldn't even take a picture in order to spare my dignity. let me paint a mental picture: the expanse was so tall and wide that a 747 could have used it as a landing strip.


this clip cracks me up every time i watch it. we need a mom jean revolution. friends don't let friends wear mom jeans. i figure if i don't completely embarass my children by the way i dress, that is a big plus for them. they may even want to be seen with me when they are teenagers.

I give you permission to post annonymously on my blog if you ever see me wearing "mom" jeans and tell me to go buy new jeans. :) Bless my mom's heart but she just didn't care a bit about fashion. I hope to avoid that for my children! (Although I loved my mom all the same).

Thank you for posting that bit from Saturday Night Live. I saw that one night and thought it was the funniest thing!

"I'm not a woman anymore- I'm a MOM!" haha I think it's easy to feel that way sometimes. That's why it's so important to stay away from the MOM jeans!!
