Do you trust hubby to take kids school clothes shopping alone?

This weekend I was out of town but hubby was excited to buy the boys (ages 6,8,13) school clothes. Normally I would NEVER let him pick out the wardrobe -scary thought- but since he was so excited I agreed to let him do it. I was surprised! He actually got everything I would have. Guess only he is a victim of his fashion nightmare-ish tendencies.

  • What a relief for you! Sounds like he did a good job. It is a little scary sometimes for us to hand over responsibilities to the hubbs. Now you can relax!!! If my SO picks out school clothes, I would like it, but I would have my phone ready by my side every second he was gone.

  • rolling on floor cafemom really needs to do a sweet pea for laughing so hard I peed. I don't trust my hubby to go to the grocery store & get the right brand of milk, even if I send him w/ a list that specifically has the brand written on it!

  • I am glad that his shopping turned out successfully. I wouldn't trust my husband to pick out good clothes for the children, even if I told him what to look for. He would be willing, just not having much of a clue.

  • If it was for my boy then yes I probably would. BUT... I would have to school him on sizes first! lol... He sucks at determining sizes. Poor guy. For the girls? NO WAY! lol

  • heck no! i don't trust him to buy his own clothes..he does, but i figure he's the one who has to wear them. my dh wouldn't have a clue what size the ds wears; besides that, if i said, 'he needs pants/shirts.', dh would come home with one pair of pants (God only know what size/style it would be) and one shirt (probably a polo, even though he knows our 5yo hates buttons!), and call it a day!

  • His actions this weekend as a whole surprised me. I was expecting to come home to the leaning tower of Pisa made of dishes and the house a wreck but....wasn't so! He cleaned and vacuumed and went grocery shopping (bought the wrong type of milk but whatever). He proved he can take care of the kids & house...too bad he doesn't lift a finger when I'm home though!

  • Good for your guy!

    Normally I would not have my husband go, but now my child has a easy uniform, so it shouldn't be hard to follow. Khaki or navy pants, red, navy, or white polo. But they are really strict as to the exact type of clothing... so now that I think about it... maybe I wouldn't let him go.
