This is not really a big deal. The daughter is old enough to make her own

being a public school teacher. She did not like my suggestion of combat gear.
Hey I trained to teach and found I could not face a public class room. Any way,
I do not enjoy installing front fly zippers in pants. The daughter claims she
will only where front fly zipper pants for work, any thing else is her causal
wardrobe.

Personally, I think I will go ahead, be stubborn, and make her some back zip
dress pants complete with jackets. If she wears them only for causal, so be it.
Her loss, not mine. LOL


Hey Mom,
I haven't even found a pair of RTW with a back or side zip in years.
Fly front isn't all that hard. there are lots of tutorials if you google.
If that's her choice why not give her what she wants.

The cats stay off the computer desk. It is the little boy who climbs up the
chair to stand on the desk to grab the hidden keyboard and then starts typing.
I love him dearly, but I am thinking about a lockable cupboard style desk.

I grew up hearing that having grandchildren was a person's best revenge on their
own children. Very true, but less fun when the grandchild and child live with
you.

I adore my daughters and grandchildren, but I must confess
that their living 10 miles from my own home contributes
mightily to that emotion. :-}

i love to install front zippers, but if she has a problem with reaching
around, buy a zipper pull they are so comfortable to use... all ages.!!!
