Best Mom Tip #114: Buy multiples of your jeans

I have mentioned, once or twice, that I cannot currently wear a lot of my clothes. This is primarily because of the 55 pound swing in my weight over the last year during my third pregnancy. Regardless of the reason, the result is that I have one pair of jeans that I wear pretty much every day.

Yesterday, I wore a hole in the thighs of these jeans. This happened to me once before with a pair of ridiculously expensive designer jeans, but I chalked that up to the fact that they were really soft to begin with and were probably not meant to be worn on a regular basis. The jeans I wore a hole in yesterday were Levi’s. I’m pretty sure that the Levi Strauss company started as a product for miners during the gold rush days.
I can’t help but feel a bit self-conscious that my thighs seem to have the same erosive properties as the California rivers miners were panning in 150 years ago.
