A truth: I never take my kids to the store to buy clothes.
Okay, so it can't be never if we have gone. But I've decided. We all have things we choose to spend money on.
We eat organic food.
But we wear nearly all hand-me-down clothes.
In fact, two years ago we were in WalMart one day looking at clothes and I wanted one of my kids to try something on, and they looked at me like how do I do that?
I informed them there was a dressing room. And they informed me they hadn't ever used one of those?
Man. I missed that Mothering-thing.
(Although I recently took a friend's teenager out and she informed me she had never purchased a single thing out of a vending machine! That seems like a Mom fail too, don't you think?)
