Dressing your children is a tough job!
For a start the little blighters keep growing! I mean you buy a pair of trousers and 3 weeks later it looks like they’ve had an argument with their shoes and are crawling up their shins! And then they change their minds every 20 minutes – They want to wear this, they don’t want to wear that blah blah blah. Add to that the constant spillages, stains and day to day grub – their wardrobes end up being twice the size of our own!
Now I don’t have to dress my children (they’re old enough to choose for themselves, not that they go round in the buff you understand!) I don’t have the stress of constantly finding the right thing for them to wear. But then I don’t get to shop for adorable party frocks for Bernard, a smart/cute shirt for Splosh and I miss it!
No dinky shoes
No pretty dresses
These adorable Mayoral outfits are just so lovely and she would have lookd so cute in it! I don’t know that I can resist! – Do you suppose that Bernard, at 17, will let me buy one for her??
Dressing your bubba’s can also end up costing a fortune, so where do we all stand on designer clothes for our children? Do you always make sure the toddler is dressed in the right label?
Or is economy the thing you look for? Is it even economic to buy cheaper clothes or do you find the higher end items last longer and wear better?
We always went for the economy aspect, money was tight when they were little, but I do wonder if we ended up spending more because we had to replace things more often.
It can raise a certain controversy amongst parents and I love to know what you all think.
