I bought two pairs of jeans for the Man-Cub last month. They were Levi's and they were not cheap. I bought them a little long and a little loose because I assumed the Cub would grow a bit.
Yesterday, when the Cub pulled on a pair of the jeans, he flashed a solid inch and a half of white tube sock. An inch and a half! Were it a mere half inch or, in all honesty, even just one small inch; I would have told him to suck it up and wear them to school, but, even I am not so heartless as to send my son to school channeling the spirit of Urkel.
It doesn't take a fortune teller to see another trip to the department store in my immediate future.
