When is it time to break out the new clothes?

OK~ I'm frustrated!  I have a 15 year old boy that has four new sweatshirts in his dresser drawer.  Yet he reaches for the other three that look just like this!

Yep, holes everywhere!  You may ask, "Why don't you just toss it out?"  These are perfect for outside doing boy stuff, but NOT ok for school.  Yet.......this is what he reaches for every morning!  I have learned to choose my battles wisely ( at least I think I have) but this drives this Mom crazy!

I asked Garrett recently, "Why don't you wear one of those new ones without any holes?"  That was the mistake.  Lesson learned, don't ask!  This is what I wish my 15 year old would wear to school, but he chooses to wear what he wants, not what his Mom wants!

Just thinking~ His elbows are currently showing and it's mighty cold here in Iowa. Coats are over rated, Moms are supposed to know that too!  I'm hoping that he will reach for one of these well put together sweatshirts soon, as this Mom thinks it is time to break out the new clothes! After All, It's All In a Mom's Day, Right?

  1. I hear ya.. I have a son (18) that wears the same thing basically everyday. (Makes it easy on laundry) and another son (15) that wears about 2 different outfits a day, sometimes 3.. you should see his laundry pile! Sigh.. someday it will all be over and we will be sad.


I always love feedback on my blog!
