I've just got both my kids to try on their school uniform - and I'm tugging at the arms pulling it down, pulling the trousers up to their armpits.

And they and my husband are having none of it. They tell me they don't want/need new school uniform.

They won't have that polished first day appearance. My teenager says if I bought them a new blazer and jumper (without additional holes in the cuffs) they won't be wearing it.

My primary school has allowed me to get them new football boots as long as they are in black and green.

My dh is grateful we don't need to spend money on anything - not even new school shoes.

Can I not put them in new gear?!?

Can I have a new September wardrobe???

They don't even want stationery!!!

Yes - because that's what I want to be smile

Would I BU to buy new stuff, get them to stand in the hallway on first day so I can go 'ahh' then allow them to change into their regular stuff, and return the new stuff?!?

I meant my primary school age child i.e. not my stroppy teenager, wanted to appease me - so said if you must you can buy me a new pair of football boots, but only if they are in black and green!

Same here, no uniform outgrown, no stationery required grin Did buy him a boot bag today in case he ever gets onto the football pitch this year, but I somehow doubt it will be required!

My youngest has needed as he is starting nursery, but my older three don't really need anything. Most of their school stuff is in used but still lots of wear condition and it fits. I do feel like something is wrong...
