How about you get a job....

My daughter has a good friend whose mom is a single mom.  Dad is nowhere to be found.  Mom doesn't work.  On Saturday, I picked up the girl to go shopping with us.  It was her birthday and I told her we would let her pick out some stuff.  The mom as we were leaving told the girl to pick out some Nikes in a size 8....and that they would only be a little big...and that way she could wear them too.

 

Ummm  If you want Nikes...go get a job.  Last year I gave her a winter coat my kid outgrew because she was always showing up at school with no coat.  She continued to do it...mom traded the coat for one that fit mom.

 

I realize the mom can do whatever she wants with the stuff in her house.  But I refuse to buy stuff for HER...

Wow. She wants her child to ask for shoes that are too big just so she can share her birthday shoes with her?

How old is this girl and her mom?

 Wow. I wouldn't be happy about that.

so stop buying stuff and report her for neglect if she is going without needed items like a coat and shoes.
