  • My mom takes my kids shopping for me, and she pays for it. If I didn't have her, and/or she didn't volunteer to do it, yes, I would do what you are doing. Nothing wrong with that, especially since they want to do it. :)

  • I'm not a single mom, but my husband will take them shopping. For Mother's Day, too. I think what you are doing is great.
