Sweet cheeks...


This cute little girl in the middle is running through a museum in China in a classic Chinese outfit- bundled from head to toe but with split pants with a full view of the sweet cheeks! It may look like a part of the pattern of her pants, but it's really the full smile!  Her mother  and sister are running with her because she started to squat to go to the bathroom and they felt that the newly redone national museum in Tiananmen Square wouldn't be the proper venue! 
Split pants have a certain practical use but I always wonder when I see the kids all bundled up except their ...um....parts.  doesn't any Chinese child ever complain that their behinds are cold?

Oh, I only realised at the end of your post that this wasn't an accidental split, but designed that way! Really?

Yes, split pants are really common among children here- they aren't in Japan?

We saw some full vertical smiles during our travels in China! Along with some suspicious piles and puddles. ;0) Cute on babies and small children- grownups would be a different story. Man we loved being in China and can't wait to go back- you gotta love those split pants!
