These are the "Dressy Styles" for Easter this year at Children's Place. Really? Distressed jeans? I'm slightly baffled as to why they sell distressed jeans for children in the first place...but to promote them as part of the "Dressy Styles" line? Really? I mean, I've put my kids in jeans for portraits, but that was in the full knowledge that this was a casual outfit. And they were new jeans, completely intact.
Do we really need to pre-distress children's clothes now? Are they that lazy nowadays that they don't even fall down and rip their jeans on their own anymore?
I believe that women's lib means I can live however I choose - even if that means staying at home, baking cookies from scratch and knitting baby booties all the livelong day. I believe that discriminating against anyone based on their color is racism - even if they're white. I believe that the bad auditions on American Idol are the end result of twenty years of focusing on self esteem - "you are perfect no matter what" - piled on top of a century of growing up consuming music rather than making it together as a family. I believe the children are our future. I believe in miracles. I don't believe in Beatles, I just believe in me.
