Let's count them off, shall we?
- Kohls: no
- Lands End: no
- Lands End again: still no (Thank you free shipping!)
- Old Navy: nadda
- Gap: not even close
- Target: yes, for William
- Walmart: Yes
For all that Walmart is Evil, they are very very GOOD when it comes to elastic, navy blue and CHEAP.
I was looking for boy shorts there (which I nixed because they needed a belt loop for camp--Seriously camp, you are KILLING ME) when I found simple navy blue, cotton shorts with a full elastic waist. For $4.97 a pair.
It gets better.
Online, I found them for 2 PAIRS for $4.97. I cannot make shorts for $2.50 a pair. I can't even drive to the Walmart to BUY them for $2.50 in gas.
They arrived today. And they fit. THEY FIT. They don't look stupid. They are very comfortable.
I am one very happy mommy right now.
