Skinny jeans for 4-6 year olds??

OK... I'll be the first to admit that I'm not the most hip mom out there. My kids don't dress in designer clothes; nor do I. I dress pretty casual to work, and really don't focus much on clothes.

So tonight, as I'm walking through Target, my eyes are drawn to a rack of jeans that are my daughters size (she's currently in a size 4-6x, as she's only 3.5 years, but tall and stocky like her mommy). So I pull a pair of pants off the rack, and it's only then do I realize that they're SKINNY jeans. As in the really tight, pencil thin jeans.

Now WHY in the world would a parent buy their young child skinny jeans?? What's wrong with keeping them looking like what they are -- little kids -- just a little bit longer? My daughter usually wears cotton leggings and a t shirt, or jeans and a t shirt -- nothing fancy at all. She plays in dirt, she runs around, she gets sweaty. She acts like a 3.5 year old. I can't even imagine her in a pair of skinny jeans. I would think she would look ridiculous! They certainly wouldn't match with her beat up Dora sneakers.

I just don't get it. Maybe it's just me being a fuddy duddy?? I *am* almost 30 and getting old!
