Do your kids dress up at all for the first day of school, or just go in the clothes they'll always wear?

I guess it doesn't apply to those who wear uniforms. My daughter's school doesn't have uniforms.

  • Most of the time I have Jeremy wear a nice collared shirt with khakis. This year, I had his clothes all laid out and he brought me his t-shirt with guitars on it asking if he could wear that instead. I guess dressing up on the first day will no longer happen.

  • When my s2on went to a school where he didn't have to wear uniforms, yes, I brought him newer clothes for the first couple of days. Thankfully now, they wear uniforms...cheaper

  • He doesn't dress up, so to speak, but he wears clothes that are newer, if that makes sense.

  • DD has always dressed up to some point. She is a tomboy in nice clothing. It's pretty funny.
    DS1 has never cared and just wears whatever.
    DS2 usually doesn't care. This year he wants to wear his Alcatraz t-shirt.

  • It's probably going to be 100 degrees on their first day so there is really no point in taking great lengths for what mine will wear. I want them to be comfortable more than dressed up.

  • At my son's school, picture day is the first day of school, so he dresses nicer than normal.
