Never Ending Mending

So. It's late February and I'm mending jeans. A lot of jeans. Unexpectedly.

Why unexpectedly? Oh, because this is snowpants season and these boys aren't outside rolling around on hills busting out knees. Or at least if they are, they have a pair of snowpants buffering impact on the jeans themselves.

Or at least you'd think so.

That's eleven pairs of jeans right there. Some with double knee blow outs. Whee... ugh.

But this? This is deja vu. I swear it wasn't that long ago that I tackled a pile this size.

Okay—I checked. It was around a dozen pairs in December(!). And the pile is already this large again.

That's it; clearly the mending pile breeds. Suddenly I understand.

Either that or my kids are ninjas and they're practicing an ancient art of destroying denim...
