  • it doesn't make you a bad are covering your child in clothing that fits and is in good repair, that's all that matters.
    designer labels are just that...labels. some people love to show how much $ they blew on their bags or tees or jeans...i mean really, who cares if you bought an expensive t-shirt?? its still a t-shirt!!
    personally, i'm with you, OP. i refuse to advertise for the designer..if that's all they got, then their clothing/etc can't be that good.

  • It doesnt make you a bad Mom. I personally would never pay that much for designer anything either. Some people just have their priorities mixed up.

  • Nope, makes you a realistic mom!! If I get name brand clothes, they are on sale or clearance.

  • That's actually kind of funny that someone is dumb enough to call you a bad mom for that. Out of all the things that can make someone a bad parent, not wearing designer clothes is NOT one of them!!

  • You can buy PLENTY of 'name brand' clothes at second had stores. Let someone else pay the big bucks. lol. I'll take it a season late at a fraction of the cost!

  • NO! You do what you have to do to keep your children in clothes and shoes. Labels have nothing to do with keeping them clothed, happy, or making you a good mom.

  • I think she was confused ad stupid. I think it makes you thrifty. I do it too. :) I'd rather sve that money and spend it on taking the kids somewhere they will enjoy! :)

  • Gosh, seems that the list gets bigger and bigger on what constitutes one as a bad mother. I spend more money on some things and go cheaper on others. I'll pay more for a nice coat that he'll wear for winter months, but go cheap on shirts that my son will just stain up in a week. I've spent 20 dollars on a pair of jeans for my son for school and the first day he wore them he came home with grass stains in them. Yea, I felt stupid to spend that much. I'll go for the 10 dollar wal-mart jeans any day.

  • you are not a bad mom at all for not wanting to splurge on ridicules overpriced goods, your just sensible and reasonable and normal for not wanting to pay 200 for a purse that your kids are probably gona get a hold of anyways lol
