Pants vs Slacks

FYI - to avoid a morning tantrum, figure out the pattern and memorize this for if you get it wrong watch out!


These are PANTS



These are SLACKS



PANTS



not very slacky SLACKS

I am not too sure where she came up with the word slacks.  Generally speaking we don't hang out with ancient people.  This morning she was so frustrated with me.  She wanted slacks. I kept picking pants.  She couldn't explain slacks vs pants.  I thought maybe pants had buttons and zippers but there are a couple of exceptions to that rule.  The horizontal stripes hands down were more desirable then pants but not as desirable as normal slacks, they were "not very slacky slacks".  Slackity slack slack.

Here's some cute photos of Lucy and Zep this morning (when she was wearing SLACKS)

don't forget trousers. i found out the fun way that, in england, you say trousers. i told my pastor to "keep his pants on". this resulted in a lot of giggles when i found out that pants are, in fact, gentlmen's underwear.

Hahaha! Love it. In our house...DumDums are NOT lollipops but DumDums are suckers. Lollipops are suckers too but a DumDum is not a lollipop. Do NOT get it wrong. I'm just telling you, do NOT mix them up. DumDums are NOT lollipops.
