I frequently complain because my kids lose garments--we don't have a single pair of gloves, just a lot of right and left unmatched items. But I swear, I'd pay someone to steal my youngest's Ugly Brown Thing, a sweatshirt jacket thing I got him last fall and, as far as I can tell, he hasn't taken off yet. Hot weather in the afternoon should mean he leaves it at school. This would require him to go to the lost and found, which he has never, ever done. If article of clothing is in there, I'm the one to fetch it.
If and when he leaves it at school, I plan on leaving the brown thing to molder forever in the L'n'F. When the school delivers the box of lost and found to some charity, I suspect they'll burn the thing.
No such luck yet.
Each kid has (or has had) some item(s) of clothing that drives me crazy. Why should I care about what they wear? It's just not that important and I have zero fashion sense. But yes, I do, a lot. So it must have something to do with my wiring. I'm required to care. I can't tell why we're designed to have this maternal feature. God knows my mother had that too and every mother since the first time humans put on garments.
What possible benefit does this have for human development? Maybe it gives kids a convenient source of rebellion against the family unit that doesn't require going into danger? Although I'd bet some of those crazy-making clothes are actually biohazardous by the time the boys are done with them.
