I don’t know what it is about guys and pants. My older son would only wear sweat pants the first four years of his life because anything else was too restricting — a behavior that was praised by my brothers-in-law who wished they could do the same thing. This morning, the toddler put up his regular fight, “No shorts! No shorts!” At times I even find myself asking my kids, “Where are your pants?”
Normally I don’t generalize, but I’ve seen the same anti-pants comments on Twitter from men celebrating a pant-less evening at home. And in 2010, Dockers made a Superbowl commercial about men who don’t wear pants. (Mom, if you are reading this, don’t click on that link unless you want to see guys without pants.) I’m with the retail giant on this one. Sorry kids, but it’s time to wear the pants.
