I took my son (4yrs) to his yearly checkup on Tuesday. The doctor asked how he does with buttons, I said I don't know, we don't have any clothes for him with buttons.
She gave me this look like I was crazy and said "You mean you don't own any button up shirts for him?" I said no, he's 4 what does he need a button up shirt for??
I didn't know I was supposed to dress my kids a special way so that they would progress properly... Is this really the big deal she made it out to be? I mean, hell, my DH is 31 and only has 2 button up shirts... We have no need for them.

My son has always had a couple of button up dress shirts. He actually has an over sized Hawaiian type shirt in the dress up box with the girls stuff that he likes to put on. (he says its his "work short" and he pretends he is going to work when he puts it on. LOL!!) It took him a while to learn how to do the buttons, but now he'll swat my hand away and tell me "I can do this!" if I forget that he is a "big boy" and can handle the buttons himself.
If you don't like button up shirts, maybe you could get him a shirt or smock to play in around the house that has buttons, or get him some learning toys that have buttons on them so he can learn how to work buttons.
