it might be socially unacceptable, but….

Occasionally Eli puts his pants on backwards. The other day I pointed it out to him and he said he wanted them that way. He also says that when he has his shoes on the wrong feet, and unfortunately I worry that it is his prideful way of stubbornly refusing to change. But maybe I’m over-thinking it…

Anyway, I figured, why not let him wear his pants backwards? They will last longer because he can wear out the knees on both sides.

  1. Jackson wears his pants backwards almost daily, and often his shirts too. When I tell him, he just says,”no they're not.” I don't fight the issue. It's not hurting me and he's happy! Kids are great.

  2. Jamin intentionally wears his shirts backwards a lot. I figure it's fine to let them have some harmless self-expression. Who knows? We could be avoiding serious rebellion in ten years by giving them this choice (at least, that's what I tell myself when resisting my OCD).
