I hope you ladies wont mind me sharing. Last year my DH lost a great job due to cut backs. We were so broke. I went back to work full time but we could still barely make it. Month after month we struggled to come up with enough money to pay the rent. Last year DD wore good will clothes to school as her new school clothes and used my old back pack from high school because the one she had the year before shredded to pieces and was un-usable. I felt bad and embarrassed. DD did not mind and never once made me feel bad. But I did, I know its just school clothes but I was so disgusted that I could not afford to buy DD a single set of new clothing. Last year was a bitch. In January DH got a new job, 3 months later he made manager. We are still behind a bit, but over all things are much better. So I did it. Yesterday I took DD out and we went school clothes shopping. I know this post is a little crazy but I just wanted to share my excitement with some one. As I took these pictures I cried tears of joy. Not so much over the clothes, but over our survival through this. We tried very hard to not let our family and friends see how bad we were struggling, so I cant really share it with them. It would not be the same. If you ladies care to see here are my DD school clothes:
the bottoms under the hanging tops go together.
Please excuse JB. My dd and her friends still love him. She begged me to get her this shirt. They are to young to know his downfall.
The only thing I have left I want to get her is some new socks.
