    Default Does your DH have an opinion on LO's clothes??

    I have done a lot of shopping for Waverly lately, in the garage sales online, and at the mall. I am happy with all of my purchases, BUT hubby seems to dislike almost everything I have bought lately, lol!!!

    He doesnt really care, he doesnt make a big deal out of it, but I wonder if most men like to hate what their SO's pick out for their LO's.

    I will pick something up and all I hear is "I hope she not wearing that outside, LOL" ( he is laughing when he says it, and i dont take it to heart, its not mean spirited.
    I have now made it my mission to find things he cant NOT like, LOL!!

    Anyone else have a picky hubby??? Do they even care what your LO's wear, do they pick stuff out with you??

    I have discovered, he loves baby gap, old navy, and HATES HATES HATES, oilily, gymboree, and any print from TCP (likes their plain jeans and cargos).

    LOL - I think I have the same taste as your DH

    My DH has only occassionally made comments - he really didn't get the Huggalugs thing at first, but he's come around. He doesn't even know the difference between a skirt and a dress though, so mostly his comments are moot in my opinion...

    My DH loves Boden, Hanna and Gap. Some of his absolute favourite things are Oilily and Catimini but he doesn't love it all. He likes most Gap and some Gymbo, and hates TCP, which is more or less how I feel. Boden is easily his favourite though and I think it might be mine too.

    OOOOO I think my hubby would like Boden also, not as "crazy" as oilily, (his words). I will show him some tonight, she does not own any (YET, tee hee).
    He likes things pretty plain, and cant really stand print, she has only had 4 oilily dresses in total, but he hasn't liked any of them , I on the other hand am in LOVE with all of it.
    I swear if she just wore old navy and gap he would never say a bad word, LOL!!

    My DH could care less what my kids wear. Around here as long as there are clothes on our backs we don't really care what brand it is. The main thing is "what is a good price". We are low on funds most of the time (comes with the territory of owning 2 businesses) so as long as we are dressed, we are good to go.

    I wish I could afford all the name brands you all talk about.

    My dh doesn't care. The only thing he cares about is how much I spend on their clothes. I buy his clothes as well so he's not really about to complain. If he was willing to do it then he would have a say. He HATES shopping. What happened to that old saying that a girl marries a man just like her father. My dad drags my mom out shopping all the time and my mom is the one who hates it. I would love a dh that would spend all day Saturday shopping with me.

    Not my DH but my DD's dad worries more about function... they do more outdoor adventures than she and I do, and I'm usually the one to get her dressed in the mornings so basically I hear a lot of feedback about how warm her coat/hat/mitts are or are not, and whether her boots are warm enough or leaky etc. I tend to score more clothing for her as I am a more avid thriftshopper, but he just got her a great pair of warm boots. Which she hates coz they are hard to get on but whatevs.

    [QUOTE]..he just complains that he can never find anything to dress them in when i'm not home (i never get the laundry put away...i keep thinking he'll get the hint) /QUOTE]

    LOL, we have this problem sometimes. Yes he is cost cautious, all the brand name stuff she has is second hand or on clearance!! I get some really nice stuff, at GREAT prices, so he does not complain about that at all, expect to tease me sometimes.

    He lactually has shopped for Waverly by HIMSELF a few times now and he always comes home with super cute stuff, but nothing with a print or bright colour of any kind, lol!!

    I do all the shopping here, buy for everyone. He isnt picky at all. But DH loves to shop. He would spend all day in the mall with me and has on numerous occasions. We love to go shopping in the US so we dont do much here anymore. He is price cautious though, he wont spend alot on one item if he get more for the same price. He runs a retail store and that should say how much he loves to shop. He shops all day for the store.

    Hehehe I had to snicker as I questioned rather it was about if my dh "had" an opinion.. or gets to "voice" an opinion here He probably thinks I spend too much on clothes.. but to be honest I do not hink he cares so much one way or another as long as I make sure she has clothes.... Mind you I do not ask because I figure it is easier to ask forgivness than permission... and if I do not know what he likes/dislikes then i can keep buying it He has on ovccassion bought her stuf.. but usually it is boyish stuff.. or stuff that implies "Irish" somehow. He is not irish , but is somehow obsessed with it.. think he likes St.Paddy's day and green beer toomuch.. probably drank to much of it and now can to get the green out of his head

    dh doesn't care what the girls where, occasionally he'll say oh where'd she get that it's really cute, but otherwise he's not worried. Of course his fav shirt that Jordyn wears is "he's not just my daddy he's my hero" he puts that on her whenever he gets her clothes out. Or her Toronto Jersey now

    Your life is a result of the choices you make, if you don't like your life it's time to start making better choices.

    My husband is a lot like me in many ways - neither of us want our kids wearing clothing with words like "princess" or "diva" or anything like that. We always point out clothing that will give our kids a diva complex, and avoid it.

    Other than that, he dosen't care. He likes when he gets to take them out and they're all dolled up in cute clothes, he likes to show off his girls. He prefers when their clothes are bought on sale or on a bargain.

    I think he likes things that are less bright than I do. I love putting the girls in vivid reds, bright multicoloured striped or patterend shirts, and he prefers softer colours and solids.

    Are we with the same guy??? LOL Mine loves to put Wave in her jersey (she has the same hat as you LO btw), and he loves to put her in any shirt that says something about her being daddy's little girl, his latest fav is the one that says "I love daddy he buys me things" tee hee!!

    We LOVE princess shirts around here, I dont buy any other girly things like that but we have totally gotten into the "princess" thing, she is going into karate and is sorrounded by boys, so I am not worried about a "diva complex' at all.
