Wait..THIS makes me a 'bad mom'

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post
Someone told me I am a bad mom because I am making DS and DD reuse their backpacks from last year. DS (entering grade 2) has a bright green one with a skull. DD (entering grade 1) has a purple one with peace signs on it.
They are still in excellent shape, just need to be washed, so what's the point in buying new ones?

You will hear lots of things people will say you are a bad parent. Everyone has there own views. What ever as long as I know what I am doing is best for our family. I don't care what they say.

My dd got a new on this year, but that's because the one my mother bought her last year fell apart. Not because my dd was rough on it or anything but because my mom bought her a cute one with matching lunch box and it just wasn't durable (the lunch box fell apart too) So bought her a brand new one this year but she's going to try her very best to make it last for the next 3yrs (middle school).

I think it's fine for kids to reuse backpacks/book bags if they are still in good shape.

Quoting zoegirlsmom:

My kids are on the third or fourth year with theirs, maybe someone should call CPS.

It certainly doesn't make you a bad mom, but it's fun and exciting to pick out new school digs! Especially when they're that little.
