My stepdaughter is with us roughly 8-10 days a month. At least three or foud of those days, when she comes to our house (usually from school), she's wearing a certain pair of jeans. (Note here, my stepdaughter is not allowed to pick her own clothes at her Mother's house- her Mother makes her wear them.) The jeans are in pretty good condition, and I've seen the rest of her wardrobe- she's not lacking in any clothing. The problem? These particular jeans are a size 6. My stepdaughter is 8 and is already beginning to grow out of a size 8. They are literally skin tight and she can't button or zip them by herself anymore- she needs a parent, or at school, a teacher, to do it for her. My stepdaughter came to our house Friday wearing these jeans (again) and saying they were hurting her stomache (again) and they were literally DIGGING into her stomache and when she took them off, her stomache and around her thighs were covered in red marks. Her Mother has been told at least three times now that these jeans don't fit anymore, by both my Hubby and by my stepdaughter, but her Mother insists that they are fine. (The only reason I can figure out why she keeps putting them on my stepdaughter is because she likes them herself.) The jeans are currently in our house, awaiting to be washed. I am seriously considering "losing" them or something. (Please note here, I've always been anal about sending back every little sock, hair tie, etc, to her Mother, and I have never intentionally "kept" something.) Now, I know this is wrong and immoral, to "lose" those jeans, but does anyone have any better ideas? If I send them back, her Mother will put them on her again. And again. And again. Anyone have any better suggestions? You should have seen my stepdaughter wearing those jeans. I don't know how she could BREATHE in them. I don't know how her Mother could think she was comfortable and looked good in them. My stepdaughter was begging me not to send them back, which is the reason why they didn't get washed before she went back this weekend, but her Mother will probably ask for them on Wednsday or Thursday when we her my stepdaughter again.
