This morning, Matthew (9 yo) was getting dressed and hops out of the bathroom with his pants around his knees.
Matthew: Mom, these pants are too small for me. I can't get them pulled up all the way.
Me: Umm... you have to unbutton and unzip them first.
Seriously! He will pull his jeans up and down without unzipping or unbuttoning them. He's so skinny that he's gotten away with it for years, but now that the pants actually fit him (read 'aren't falling off of him') he doesn't want to make the effort to use them as intended. Maybe I'm old fashioned, but is it really that tough of a task? Anyone else have this problem?
