This Toddler Trying To Set On Skinny Jean Is All Of Us
Okay ladies, I think we’ve all been there, right?
Either your jeans are fresh from the dryer, or you had one too many soft shells on taco Tuesday, or you’re juuuust checking to see if you can squeeze into last year’s pants( spoiler alert: probably not ). Abruptly instead of simply get garmented, you’re writhing around on the floor with your belly sucked in as far as it’ll go, doing the worm like it’s 1988, straining to get the zipper to budge far enough that you can even guess about fastening the button.
Well thankfully, this video of little Ryan, child of Pennsylvania mom, proves that we’re not alone in the struggle.
Ryan discovered some old, outgrown jeans, and quick-thinking Price picked up a camera to capture the cuteness.
Can you button em? Are they a little too snug? she asks the toddler, who’s maintaining her cool way better than I usually do at this point when I’m attempting to cram myself into skinny jeans.
But, as cute as the video is, some people took issue.
Some were worried the newborn would grow up with body shaming issues because of Mom’s offhand “skinny girl dance” comment.
Though others rejected that as a silly thing to worry about with a baby who isn’t even out of diapersand felt focusing on “body confidence issues” entirely missed the point.
Ironically, other people claimed the newborn was “obese.”
Which is sort of a strange slant to take when 😛 TAGEND
A) It’s not your child.
B) Um…what? Who says that ???
C) Aren’t they the ones actually body shaming the baby?
But I digress.
Then there were those who found something completely different to pick on.
These were obviously people who never had children, because every mother knows that kids outgrow stuff so fast it’s ridiculous surely a lot faster than you can clean out their drawers and make sure you’ve weeded out anything that’s now eight sizings too small.
Plus kids get super attached to their favorite clothes. My daughter is five and she still wears her favorite 3T dress…we just call it a “shirt” now.
Anyway, believe it or not, the discussion got even more heated after that.
