Why and where are the kids there wearing more than one pair of pants? Recently, a new family moved into my apartment complex...and their kids appeared to be wearing multiple layers of pants - the eldest appeared to be wearing 3 pair, the younger ones as many or perhaps only 2 pair. the younger kids here are picking up on the "new cook." My neighbor's boy, 10, has been wearing 2 pair of pants lately, and his sister (who used to wear a dress to school with tights and 1 or 2 socks over this) now is wearing several tops and shirts and 2 pair of pants...or one pair of pants with shorts over them. So again, why are the kids where you are wering multiple pairs of pants, and where is this happening?
