I don't mind paying for lunches, school supplies, student fees, tuition, and so on. But every week, my daughter's kindergarten class is having a Spirit Day. Last week, the kids were all supposed to wear T-shirts with college logos and lettering on them to promote the idea of higher education. My daughter didn't have a shirt like that--shoot, even my old college shirts are long gone. The week before that, she was supposed to wear a T-shirt with her elementary school logo on it, which I bought for $15 for the occasion, even though I wouldn't usually dream of paying that much for a kids' shirt. Today, it's Broncos Day. Again, my daughter doesn't have a Broncos shirt. I sent her to school in blue shorts and an orange tanktop justso she'd at least be wearing the team colors. What's it going to be next week, for heaven's sake? Are we going to cycle through all of the local sports teams? And what when we run out of those?
Like I said, I don't mind paying for stuff. It's part of motherhood. I don't want my daughter to be that kid who never participates. But when is it enough already? And what is T-shirt Day going to accomplish?
