My sis-in-law goes overboard on her kids clothes. She was bragging to me that the price of her daughter's outfit added up to $400. I could never spend that in a billion years. I usually go to Gabes for my son's school clothes. He has a pair of Nikes and a nice pair of boots. He wears Levi's most of the time. My 3 yr. old usually wears Walmart clothes and hand me downs because he is bad for ruining his clothes so I don't like to invest in him. He has nice shoes but has sensory issues with his feet. There is one pair of shoes he likes to wear always. She bought him a pair of shoes because she said she was so tired of seeing him in the same shoes. The problem is I cant get him to wear the shoes she bought. She told me she gets embarrased when she takes my kids anywhere. It makes me sad. Guess we just have different priorities. Plus it saddens me when I hear my niece and nephew scolded for messing up their clothes. I've never fussed at my kids about clothes...I just clean them. Oh well...just wanted to vent. I dont have that much and I do my best. I go to my sons school and he looks like his classmates...dont feel that he needs to stand out.
