I never said I didn't want my stepdaughter to be comfortable. I stated that she has some jeans that fit at our house and she has a ton of jeans that fit at her Mother's house. Buying her new jeans isn't the issue, it's the fact that her Mother was insisting on putting her in THOSE jeans, the jeans that did not fit anymore, all the time. Regardless of whether or not we bought her new jeans, her Mother would have put her in THOSE jeans instead, or if we didn't give them back, she would have either thrown a fit in front of the child or made something important "disappear" from our house. (Voice of experience speaking, here.) We can't AFFORD to buy her new jeans. We can barely clothe both children as it is, without buying clothes for my stepdaughter to wear at her Mother's house as well.
