Some might say it’s the staple item
of male excitement. Some might say it’s the staple
item of female fitness. The majority of moms would say it’s
the wardrobe necessity of choice.
Actually, make that THE wardrobe, period.
For all the teasing a mom’s partner
will give her about her varied outfits of black yoga pants, black yoga pants
and black yoga pants, these partners don’t understand the pure vitality and
life comfort a pair of yoga pants brings. The pure sight of clean yoga pants in
a mother’s burgeoning clean laundry pile of is a sight almost as welcome as
a child silently sleeping.
So ladies, don’t let people’s negativity
around your yoga pants ruin a perfectly great relationship. Think about it, is
there any other relationship in which you receive such ease and comfort? Is
there any other relationship in which you receive no stress or aggravation?
Nope! Even your family cat or dog can be a real pain in the ass sometimes.
So screw the haters, here are just eight reasons to justify all that yoga pant wearing (not that we need reasons):
1. It Eliminates Excessive Laundry
reasoning, how can anyone challenge your deeply entrenched desire to live 24/7
in your yoga pants?
Your laundry is
already out of control! That threenager who believes every single mood swing
deserves a new outfit? Or what about your partner who doesn’t know how to
operate the washing machine without breaking it? (Come on, folks! It’s 2017!)
Wearing the same outfit every day downsizes your laundry significantly. It allows you to also avoid
heavy dry cleaning expenses because, hello, they're machine washable.
however, that can be done about your threenager’s pop star outfit changes.
As a mom, life is
bound to irritate you. Wearing the luxuriously soft and stretchy comfort of
yoga pants instantly eases your clenched mom-jaw and high-volume yelling.
It makes you
happy. It makes you tolerate, kid puke, toddler spills, baby nursing rants
and preschooler “creativity” that usually means using your most expensive red
lipstick as a Crayola on your freshly painted walls.
Yoga pants bring
joy! Living in your yoga pants basically means everyone
else in your house gets to live.
3. It Means More Sleep
Really, who needs
a change of clothes in the morning? If you go to sleep in your yoga pants and
roll out of bed in your yoga pants, you’ve just cut down time on the morning
routine. This means less yelling at kids to “Get ready for school” or “Eat
your breakfast” or “Don’t hit your brother!”
It means you
earned an extra FIVE MINUTES OF SLEEP.
This brings you
joy, and with this joy, your kids eliminate meeting “the meanest mom EVER.”
If you live in
your yoga pants, you’ll never have to change clothes.
4. It Means No Holiday Guilt
moans and groans about how their pants don’t fit because they dabbled a little
too heavy into the cookies and wine, you’ll be comfy and not-too-snug in your yoga pants! They look
good and feel good.
OK, so some
people debate the fashion vitality and look of yoga pants, but to us it looks
damn good and even if it doesn’t, who cares?
5. It Means a Better-Looking Butt
Who needs a
better butt when yoga pants can often make your butt look good? All the
exercise and sweating—why bother? Just wear yoga pants and breathe a deep sigh
of contented relief.
6. It Means Stains Don’t Count
Got a great pair of
jeans? Nice. Of course, you know your toddler will spill chocolate milk all
over them about an hour into wearing them.
But if you live and breathe in your yoga pants, you
can get formula, breast milk, chocolate milk, pizza or any wide variety of
childhood stains on your pants and most likely, no one can tell.
They might just
look like “shiny yoga pants,” in which case, your fashion factor just moved up
by ten notches! Aren’t metallics in these days?
If you live in
your yoga pants, you’ll never have to change clothes. And truly, why
Yoga pants work
at the gym, at your child’s school—and even at dressy functions! You’ll just
have to add a nice top to look like a “fancy” human being.
8. It Saves Money
Wearing your yoga
pants each day could have some people view you as some hippie, especially if they
start to smell, but purchasing clothes that fit well cost money. Think of all
the dollars you’ll save to buy your kids useless toys they’ll break in five
minutes rather than wasting it on clothes.
Wearing only yoga pants is truly an act of great love and sacrifice for your whole family! It’s not just
about comfort. No, it’s about looking at the big family picture.
