ALL THE TIME? Am I the only one?


I know we all have our favorites. HOWEVER, I swear Isaiah wears the same 4-5 shirts ALL the time. Even when I go out and buy similar shirts to the ones he likes..it's still the same

Well since I have Gabrielle the fashionista I have the opposite problem if it were up to Gabby she would wear a diffeent outfit everyday of her life.It isn't so she does not,but she will mix and match tops and pants so her outfit never looks the same.That said my bff has boys and she tells me she used to hide certain tops becaus eher boys would want to wear the same thing all the time.SO maybe it is a boy thing.


I kind of wish Gabby was less into fashion she has an"interview" to tutor on Th and they sent home a sheet with actual interview tips,so now she is claiming she needs a brief case and she is going to take one set of earirngs out,plus she wants me to buy her a "lawyer" suit for Th.I really wish they would not send stuff home like that.It is great to know how to act on a real interview,but I really don't think a 12 year old needs to type of a resume to tutor a 5th grader in SS.Plus Gabby takes everything on the paper to heart.I truely do not think I am going suit shopping in the next 36 hrs;-)

God knows who to give certain kids to. If my daughter EVER came home and requested that, we'd be at Banana Republic like yesterday buying her a suit. LOL!


I am SO like that. Hahaha

Daisy is more a fashionista than not, though I am getting sick of her cheer sweatshirt!


The boys however if I don't rotate their shirts they would wear the same ones over and over.

Yes, my son gets stuck in a rut. He loves buying new clothes but will wear a few favorite over and over. Sometimes I get a banana up my butt and ask him where this or that shirt are and why he's not wearing them. I will go pull things out and make him pick from those instead of his few choices.

Kurt is like that too. he has tons of clothes, but he wears the same things all the time. Personally, I think its laziness...that is what he sees when he opens the drawer. I started hanging his shirts in his closet so he could see them all, but he does his own laundry and i think I'd have an easier time bringing peace on earth than getting him to hang stuff up.

I usually just let it go, although it does bug me a bit since I do like to buy kids clothes. My biggest pet peeve is kids whose clothes are too small so I guess as long as his clothes fit and are clean, then I don't get on his case too much.

My daughter on the other hand is a clothes horse. She loves trying clothes on in the change rooms and picking out outfits. The other day, we were at the Children's Place and she was walking around going "Oh, I love this. I Hate this. That is pretty. I need this" It was kinda funny and scary at the same time. lol

You've got to re-engineer the drawers! Take the load of shirts he wears repeatedly and stash them under stuff in a different drawer. Then take the shirts he never wears and put them on the top of the stack in his shirt drawer. This sounds kind of silly, but it keeps the shirts rotating so they wear evenly. I do this with my almost 12 yo DS and it works.

Yeah I tried that once but then I got side tracked because his drawers were in disarray. LOL! I think a re-org is in order though. You are right!

You could actually even hide the over-used shirts for a while just so the other ones don't go to waste.

Yeah, that is a good idea! I have given away shirts with the TAGS because he's outgrown them but never wore them

I think it's a guy thing... Evan is fairly fashion conscious so I don't have the same problem but lots of his friends are like that. His usual attire is a striped polo with a plain long-sleeve t underneath and jeans. On Sunday he wears khakis instead of jeans. Because he likes labels (Abercrombie and Hollister) he only has 5 polo shirts (all white and either brown, green, orange, or red striped) and 5 long sleeve shirts to wear under them. Our budget just doesn't allow for 8 - $50 shirts and another 8 - long sleeve $50 tees). He has three pairs of jeans that he rotates throughout the week and I do laundry weekly. He has TONS of short sleeve ts from swim meets, scout events, camps, etc. which he wears on the weekends. The playground supervisor at school calls him stripes because of his striped polos. lol! :)
