“Put a Pikachu on it” is my husband and my new inside joke. But seriously, the patch hack is a game changer. ✨ Since we’ve focused on hand me downs and buying used since my kiddos were babies it is all they know. So that’s not the issue. They don’t think twice when a pair of pants show up and I say, “This came from Bobby in Minnesota.” In fact they love the idea of a big kid pre-loving something they’ll use. It’s what they know. The issue is that as my kids have gotten older (and Emi since conception) they care more about the style, the colors, and the characters. They’ll browse the used kid clothing and gear apps with me and choose what catches their eye. However, when it comes to outerwear that I know works well and holds up, the selection isn’t as vast, and often is a hand me down for us, it becomes tricker. I’ve tried the, “this is what we have so this is what we will use,” but was finding it an ongoing struggle. And I’ll be honest, the character driven kid clothing market gets to me. It’s often overpriced and tacky, so there is that too. But I get it… clothing is a way many of us love to express ourselves- a creative extension of our inner story. So I decided not to fight that fight, but encourage letting them be them, but without giving up on my belief in hand me downs and buying used or the very practical belief that I don’t want to spend a ton of $$$ on things they’ll grow out of so quickly. For my son, he’s all about Pokemon right now and my daughter is all things My Little Ponies and Unicorns, and also Pokemon because her big brother loves it. So I tuned it to their preferences and bought patches, like a lot. And my world has changed. I wish someone would have shared this with me years ago, so now I’m sharing it with you all. #putapikachuonit #parenthack #parentinghacks #parentingtips #parentlife #momlife #honestmotherhood #irononpatches #pokemon #pikachu #buyused #handmedowns #raisingkids
