My husband is going overseas on Thursday and he asked me to pick up something for his best friend's two daughters. I ended up getting them a complete outfit - skirt, shirt, sweater and tights (all on sale). Later, I got to thinking, "you know, when MY best friend buys for my sons, she buys a full outfit - pants, shirt, socks, but when MIL buys for my son(s) it's always just a shirt or just a sweater" And then I thought, "well, when I buy for myself or my husband, I don't buy WHOLE outfits usually, so WHY do I feel compelled to do it for young children?" Am I weird in this? Or is it that kids close are much harder to mix and match? I know I get VERY annoyed when MIL just buys a shirt and then he has nothing to match it with and he's ALWAYS short on pants, but she never, ever buys them for him. So then I have to go out to where I "think" she bought the shirt and need to find a matching pair of pants. Since he dirties most things top and bottoms, I don't have "spares" of things, so those "extras" won't be used almost ever. But, maybe I'm the weird one? is it strange I bought a whole outfit? Or should I have just gotten the skirts or the sweaters?
