We're off this morning to buy Eloise's school shoes... the one thing I had to wait to buy as I wanted to be sure she didn't grow a size or two (don't laugh, her father's used to in the span of months when he was a kid!) after I'd bought them.
They're pretty expensive item (around the $100 mark) but I suppose when you think they wear them around 200 days of the year, that's 50c a wear isn't it? Oh unless they wear sneakers for sport, well anyway, you get he picture.
I just don't understand how people with 3 or 4 kids afford this year-in-year-out? You get over the expense of Christmas, and then it's straight into school uniform, shoes, supplies and fees. They weren't kidding when they said kids are expensive.
Think I'm going to open another bank account and start squirreling money away for 'school expenses'. Is that what everyone else does?
