Would it bother you if a child wasn't wearing the correct size clothing?
I watched a little girl who is 3. She's the size of my 2 year old, but he's wearing 24mo-2t clothes...the occasional 3T pants cuffed at the bottom. She, however, came to my house wearing 12 month pants as capris. I went shopping with her mom last month. Saw her purchase 4T clothes for her child (so she can grow into them and avoid having to buy more clothes) and for her birthday, my husband and I purchased some 3T clothes that looked like they fit her perfectly. But she came over to my house in 12 month bottoms. It's not the first time either. Seems every other day she's wearing 12 month stuff.
I normally think...it's not my child, so ignore it. I would also think not everyone has money. I remember growing up wearing hand me downs, thrifts, garage sales...and -gulp- the years my mom decided to MAKE my clothes...so I know clothes shopping is rare, but I was at least in the appropriate sizes. I know she has clothes and seeing her every other day in sizes she should be out of is just irking me. Probably venting, but since her mom knit picks and comments about my kids and parenting...I almost want to just SAY something, but "if you can't say something nice..."
If you see this regularly...would you say something or would you let it go?

I use to watch my gfs kids and she'd bring her 3 year old daughter over in clothes 2 sizes too small. I wasn't irritated or anything, but it did cause me to ask her if she wanted to start the pass me down thing since my 3 year old is a little bigger than hers. In any other circumstance no I wouldn't say anything. No, I wouldn't dress my kids in clothes that are too small or too big because I had to do that when I was little.
