When do you think it is too early?

I guess I've just never thought about it like that and I'm sure the more kids you have the more necessary something like that would be.

There comes a point in a child's life, that you just don't buy the next size up in clothing, ime.

I understand what you mean, it's something that I do every season.

Thank you for clarifying, like I told PNJ it's just not something I had thought about before, probably because I only have a one year old.

This is a perfect example of how we all have different ideas, world views, personalities, wants and needs and things that make us happy. What works for you would be bloody hell for me.

"we haven't lasted this long with me nagging him to get things done I am capable of doing myself, "

This might be part of the dichotomy is that I don't have to nag. Never have. We will have our 14th anniversary this up coming Labor Day. So obviously we have found the rhythm that works for us.

"I would choose my husband anyday over some beer guzzingly sports boy!!! "

LOL, me either.

"Do you think back in the stone age if the men did domestic and the women went out hunting, that the family unit would have eaten that day?"

Well, I don't live in the stone age and since we have no real idea of what went on, that is pure speculation.

"No, men were made for a reason, to provide for the family, and women were made to provide for the home. I know that burns a lot of you libs right off the wall, but it's a FACT!!! "

Actually until you provide some indisputable PROOF, it is an OPINION!!!!

"My husband does not work your basic cubicle, crap job, 8-5."

Neither does mine. He has his own cool office with a great view and by and large helps the world be a better place.

I do it twice a year--in Aug before school starts and again in the spring. I also to it as Dylan and I fold his laundry. I'll ask him if a particular shirt still fits or if a certain pair of jeans are getting too short. That's when I check clothing if they need mending.

Our weather changes four times a year pretty much it needs to be done more frequently, I think.
