heart pants

I'm pretty sure the average person has heard of "hot pants."

I can't say that I own a pair myself ... I have some jeans that (prior to my most recent pregnancy) fit nice and snugly, but I wouldn't say that they are particularly "hot."

"Flattering" would probably be a better term for them.

Anyway, having another girl in the house has made my mind jump fifteen years into the future and caused me to prematurely worry (or just plain think about) some of the issues I may have to face with my daughter ...

Gender biases.

Self esteem.


Mean girls.

Overtly sexual clothing.

Luckily, for now, these things are of little consequence and I can easily pull the strings and make the decisions for Pearl. I've got a couple of years before she starts to develop preferences and exert her independence as a toddler ...

Good practice for when she is a teenager?

(God, help me!)

Which brings me back to the "hot pants" I spoke of earlier ... I want to go on record as saying that I plan on banning (and definitely will not spend my own money to purchase) any sort of pants with writing across the backside.

Be it completely benign or provocative innuendo ... My sweet little girl doesn't need a billboard on her butt!

People can find their reading material elsewhere!

Yet, despite these strong feelings for attention-grabbing fashions, I can make a small exception for the "heart pants" (definitely not "hot pants") pictured in today's post.

Onesie: Carter's (hand-me-down)
Pants: Carter's (hand-me-down)
Socks: Walmart (pack of ten for $6.00)

As you can see, they are cute (instead of questionable).

  1. I agree! I have to say, the thought of raising a little girl in today's world is a little scary. But I say YES to heart pants! So cute! My little guy has a pair of pajamas with a little sock monkey head on the bottom and my older two get such a kick out of calling him "monkey bottom" when he wears them!
