Week of Pants Day 3


Let me introduce you to the most favourite pair of pants ever to come off my sewing machine. What you might be thinking, they don't look that special, has she been sniffing sewing machine oil for too long, there all right but really!?

Look closely, these babies have been overlocked by Caleb. That's right, on Australia Day he spent the arvo sitting on my lap, pulling out the pins and feeding it through the machine and snipping threads. Woo hoo. Who is that sitting alone on the couch watching the cricket by himself, oh dear, it's Daddy. Yeah dude, can't chat gotta sew! Never a prouder Mum, I have some more pants already pinned and ready for action since he has been asking to do more.

He is starting his new kindy next week and I just realised all his pants are store bought ones and with the buttons and zips he can't pull them up by himself so he needs some Mum specials so that he can go by himself to the bathroom. (How do normal kids do it). Kids with Asperger's are notorious for fine motor skills so off into Team Bug and Pop we go. Since he is going to a completely different place to last year we have told him he is off to school and he couldn't be more excited! He wants to walk there by himself he told me, so funny (yeah right, not to mention that it would probably take him an hour and a half).

Oh I love these too! And big yeah to caleb for sticking with his mama! good luck to you both for the new school. I send the rooster in elastic waisted pants to his preschool so he can manage the pulling up by himself.

Ha! They're my favourite by far too. I love a bit of crazy pants action.
I noticed the same thing with shop bought pants for my nephews...they all have zips and buttons, even in size 1 and 2. It's mush easier to change nappies and toilet train with home made elastic waist pants.

Brilliant work Bug and Pop! Cindy, the pants and the Asperger's and the toilet are a trial! Trying to get elasticated waists in "cool" clothes in size 8 somewhat of an issue here. Well done with Caleb's pants.

My eleven year old still just pulls everything up & down. She never bothers with zips & buttons. It it doesn't go over her hips she doesn't want it! Hope it all goes well for Caleb.
