I’ve often heard people equate two-year-olds to adolescents, and now I’m starting to understand what they mean. Much like a teenager, Ari has pronounced likes and dislikes. For example, he has decided that he hates jeans.

This becomes a major battle when we are attempting to get dressed and leave the house. As a result of his denim hatred, I’ve purchased several pairs of non-jean pants such as fleece pants, sweatpants, running pants, corduroys, you get the idea. The only trouble is when we’ve gone through all the “comfortable pants” (as he calls them) all that’s left are these:

They are the enemy. If I try to put them on his little legs, he’ll scream “NO JEANS!”

But when they are the only option, I have to force him to wear them!

Anyone else’s kid have fabric preferences?
