send your children to a class covered in dirt? I went to pick up my twin daughters from my exes house so they could go to their reading class this morning. When i looked at them, their clothes, jackets and shoes were covered in dirt. My ex doesnt think this is a big deal and says it should be about how the kids feel, not their apperance. I am sorry, but i Know kids get dirty but when they go out, I do not want them looking like they just rolled in a pig pen.

I would not take them to a class dirty. My ex is also like this so if we have to go somewhere directly after I pick them up, I always make sure I go alittle early so I can make sure they are clean and look decent.

I took my 4 yo dd to music class in mismatched clothes and uneven socks because we had a bad day and she picked out the clothes herself. However, they were clean.

see that wouldnt bother me, he has done that before but its the clean thing that bugs me, i dont want my kids looking like they are dirty...mismatched is fine, my oldest daughter is like me, i never wore the same 2 socks and she doesnt either and i let her go to school like that all the time

funny thing is that he thinks this is acceptable and that it shouldnt matter how they look but how they feel...like seriously, he is messed up if he thinks thats ok
