Now that we got that fun part out of the way, I get to talk about what I am calling my new official “work pants”, as a stay-at-home dad who works from home.
If you can imagine, since becoming a stay-at-home dad exactly 3 months ago today, I haven’t gotten out of the house much. I’m constantly taking care of my 21 month-old daughter all day, as well as my 7 year-old son, when he’s not at school.
I feel that I really put the “stay-at-home” in stay-at-home dad.
With that being said, it’s still important to me that I don’t look or feel like a slob; even if the only people who see me all day are my wife and kids.
So when Tommy John reached out to me and offered an item from their online catalog, I immediately thought, “I would love some new work pants!”
By browsing their Loungewear section, I ended up choosing their Lounge Jogger pants.
Once I received them in the mail this week, my preconceived ideas about these pants were true:
They are perfect for me as a stay-at-home dad!
The immediate thing I noticed is how comfortable they are. I feel like I’m really getting away with something, somehow. It’s I’m like wearing pants but I don’t feel like I’m actually wearing them.
I have to question, “Am I pulling a Donald Duck right now? Did I remember to put on a shirt only to neglect actually put on pants today?”
Then I look down and see that no, I am indeed wearing pants: Tommy John Lounge Jogger pants, to be exact.
The next thing I really like about these pants is how they are just tight enough around the ankles, so that the bottom of my pants don’t drag on the floor.
And the pockets- ah, the pockets… perfectly in place where I need them.
I never know when I’m going to need to pick up a Cheerio my daughter dropped or her Peppa the Pig doll when she needs me to hold it for her.
After experiencing the Tommy John Lounge Pants, I just can’t imagine how any man would not love them.
But for me specifically as a stay-at-home dad, I am now spoiled, and don’t want to wear anything else for pants. I guess that would be my only complaint!
I have enjoyed my new work pants so much that I took it upon myself to write a jingle for Tommy John lounge pants and shoot my own commercial. That way, when potential consumers search “Tommy John Lounge Pants“, they get to see me perform my awesome song! (Featured at the top of this post.)
Along the way, my kids apparently enjoyed hearing me write and practice the jingle, so we ended up even shooting a “kids’ version” of the song as well. My 21 month-old daughter is responsible for most of the dance moves for the jingle. (Featured below.)
It is plain to see, these Tommy John Lounge Pants have really enhanced my week!
