Fort Benning, GA, United States
I'm an army wife, working mom of 2 kids, and a dancer for fun! My husband Tim works the at the combatives school here on fort benning. I work for MWR at Outdoor Recreation as their admin assistant...I absolutely LOVE my job I couldn't have found anything better! My daughter, Kennedie, was born in January of 04 and our son, Cale, was born June of 09 - that's right they are 5 and a half years apart! Kennedie is VERY involved in dancing. Cale is well on his way to become a fighter - daddy is already working on his punching and kicking techniques! This blog started out as a recipe sharing venture but now it's going to turn into a more "granola" way to live. Cheap recipes more homemade recipes and repurposing things. I'm a crafter at heart so i'm going to throw some of that in their too!

SAVE THE KNEES! (making kids jeans last longer)

Lets be real folks.  Kids go through jeans like nobody's business.  I can buy my daughter a new pair of jeans at the beginning of school and she can already have week knees by end of December.  I don't know about you but with my daughters shape the only brand of jeans that fit her are the Justice brand.  Those can get pretty pricey even at the 40% off sale they have frequently, especially if you have to replace them every 6 months.  I like to buy them a bit bigger so she can wear them a little longer - but when she is blowing out knees left and right it's makes it hard.  
So recently I bought her a pair at Justice in the clearance section (WOOHOO SCORE!) they fit her well and were a bit big in the waist so they could be worn a little longer!  So she got home yesterday from school and I noticed the below picture was happening to her knees.  It's possible that I bought them that way and they were styled to do that but I didn't notice, but surely couldn't have happened in one wear...(or could it????)  So I took action!  I added (the above picture) knee patches to the knees so it would protect the knee area and make it stronger....WHY DIDN'T I THINK OF THIS 2 YEARS AGO WHEN THIS BECAME A PROBLEM!  I will continue to "SAVE THE KNEES!" with every pair of pants I buy her from now on!
