On a completely different note, last year Jessica shocked me by telling me she was willing to wear jeans. To her credit she did wear them occasionally, but I probably could have gotten by with one pair instead of the 3 that I bought.
This year, she announced she didn't want jeans. This didn't shock me. So I haven't bought her any.
Today when I met her at school, she firmly announced that she wanted to wear jeans. Since this contradicted her statement of a couple of weeks ago, I asked why.
"So I can put my baby Zhu-zhu pet in the pocket."
Of course. Why else would someone want to wear a particular item of clothing?
This comes from her new friend Sarah who brought her baby Zhu-zhu pet to school yesterday and apparently kept it in her pocket. Since Jessica didn't have pockets, I'm guessing she was forced to keep her toy in her backpack.
I guess we're going jeans shopping tomorrow.
