Kindergarten Aged Boys Don't Need to Match Right?
Case in point
All of toothsome #3's shorts blew holes in them a few weeks ago. I immediately went to Hannah Andersson and was thrilled to see that they had their shorts on sale. I ordered him four new pairs that were available in his size. I didn't really even look at the colors, etc. because the price was right and it was Hannah Andersson.
Well, they have all arrived and NONE of them match any of his existing t-shirts. Most (OK, all) of his shirts are hand me downs from his older brother and older cousins and I just assumed that out of the stack of shirts (he honestly has something like 25 t-shirts in his size right now) he owns, we could find at least one match for each pair of shorts. No such luck.
How bad of a mother will I look like if I send him to Kindergarten with clothes that don't match? What if I pin a sign on his shirt that says, "The shorts are new. I am not a homeless child. My mom has the receipts at home."
He doesn't care, so I should be fine with it right?
