My boys, 7 and 5, are really hard on clothes. Stains, rips, stretched out- they do it all. Full service boys. :)
I am contemplating this year having them have a nicer set of "school clothes" that come off as soon as they come home. They already have "church clothes" and they actually really get into it (7 year old in particular has to wear a tie- his preference.)
But here's the thing: I'd like to have school clothes for them to help them become a bit more aware of their personal appearance. And this rubs me kind of the wrong way. I can't figure out why I care, and whether or not that is an acceptable message to send to my young children.
So... discuss. Who amongst you has "school clothes" for your kids? Why? How does it work?
