Rock The Halls In Style With Sears Canada, Plus $100 Gift Card

“Oh I can’t wear that Momma,” Chunky said as he wiped his wet nose on the bath towel that was wrapped around his 5 year old frame. I sighed loudly as I opened the bathroom door and waved him through, “Après vous.”

There used to be a time when I could pick out something for my son to wear and he’d wear it without question then he turned 4 and started to have an opinion.


I can’t deny his inner cool just so long as his “cool” is picked out before 8:20am.

This school year, I’m rolling with it. I’m going to let him take part in choosing his outfits this year at Sears. I remember my mom taking all five of us kids there before school had started. God bless her heart. I now know why she subjected herself to five bored kids with tempers and the mastered art of vicious arm pinches. Sears carried and still does carry a variety of top quality brands at reasonable prices – and carries all the styles your kids love!

She left with five happy faces.

Meanwhile, have some ice cream before summer’s over. 🙂

  40. Andrea Amy Andrea Amy

    Depends on the kid. I have 5 ranging from 4 all the way up to 20. But for the most part, I let them pick within reason. For instance, my 7 year old only wants to wear jeans and short sleeved tshirts, while my 6 year old prefers sweats and long sleeved tshirts.

  41. Eva Mitton-Urban Eva Mitton-Urban

    Honestly, last year I decided to cut the apron strings and let my 10 year old son Evan take the responsibility of *personal hygiene and attire*. Yikes, then I saw his ensemble blue pants/orange shirt and red sneakers. For awhile I assisted with the development *chuckle*. Returns to Grade 6 in Sept 2, should be interesting…the rope is unleashed.
