at age 10, my second son outgrew his school pants in less than six months. we bought him new pairs of pants for this school year, much to his delight and comfort.
for the old school pants, this mother turned them all into bunso’s school shorts. it would be a waste of money if we buy bunso new school shorts. i reasoned out to our little boy that by his fourth grade (he is now in third grade), he will change uniforms from shorts to pants anyway.
with a portable sewing machine at the small home, we don’t need to spend money on repairs. i did the repair myself with the help of the children.
aside from an instant uniform update for my little boy, we got to save money. and from the money we’ve saved, we bought him new white polo shirts!
i am very grateful to our dear Lord for giving me such understanding children. thank you po.
