Tiny Pants

brown linen pants with mouse knee pads

You guys, how cute are little kid pants? I'm not patting my own back here about these pants in particular, I'm just sharing that every time I pull a tiny pair of Jakey pants out of his drawer I do a little internal laugh. Or sometimes not so internal. Lara's clothes now just look like miniature adult clothes, which also has its cuteness appeal - but really, not the same thing. I mean, there is just no way that any grownup could put on a big version of what counts as pants for toddlers and looks like anything other than a clown. Or M.C. Hammer.

P.S. Does anyone know what that little mouse character is from? It was salvaged from a beloved but outgrown shirt (that used to be Lara's before her brother inherited it!). Looks like some kind of Hayao Miyazaki rip-off to me... or is it an actual Miyazaki character? I haven't seen all his movies, so what do I know.
