Girl x, truly some kids are just complete grots. Half the time their parents couldn't tell you how they got so filthy, they breathe and they're covered in muck. It's uncanny. And nothing to do with how they are raised or how well cared for they are (not saying you were saying that at all), just as very clean kids aren't always so clean because their parents don't let them play in the mud, it just seems to stick to some kids more
ETA, I don't bother putting a bib on DS. It's just one more thing to wash, as he gets food on the bib, and under the bib too. Gumboots? Fill with muddy water within 10 seconds.

I would judge more over dirty hands/faces/snotty noses and dirty/smelly hair than clothes that are a little dirty or have food on the front.
Personally, pjs stay on here until after breakfast. They then go straight into the wash as everything in this house only gets worn once.
I rarely carry a spare set of clothes with me for DS2 but I always have wipes on hand. My kids hate having dirty hands and faces and will usually ask me for a wipe lol.

Girl X, I think I understand where you are coming from.
My second daughter is a lot like yours and more often than not finishes the day in the same set of clothes as she started in, and they are very clean.
My FIRST daughter on the other hand.... lol, she is a grub! It seems she only has to walk past mess and it will end up on her.
If I had have had my children the other way around I am sure I would have been asking the same question!

I take notice of my child. She is in clean clothes, hair is brushed and tied up if necessary, hands and nails are clean, face is clean, clothes are washed, ironed and stainless. She has hoes on. Her shoes and clothes are the right size and in good condition.
I do not take notice of others or judge unless I know them personally and know they don't buy clothes or shoes when kids outgrow them, or that they don't wash their kids or take care of them.

I am very much the same as lemonhead.
Can't stand my kids being out in public grotty, always carry spare clothes and wipes everywhere I go.

I always wonder if this had any effect on how they are when they get older?
My dad was in the army plus with private schools we never left the house without clean shoes, hair done, shirts tucked in etc and to this day I could never leave the house without at least my hair and makeup done,
DH and his sisters on the other hand always go to the shops in trackies and thongs and don't care if their clothes are ironed etc when not at work
i try to do both with DS, shops, restaurants, visiting he is always immaculately dressed, I carry spare clothes and wipes but if we go to the park or gymbaroo I make sure he just has his "play clothes " on and let him make as much mess as he likes
The only thing I judge on is hair! I hate seeing kids with messy hair , just put a brush through it please!

Elijahs Mum, you would hate my daughters hair then. It's messy even if it has been brushed. We joke that it has two settings, mad professor or bird's nest.

Even when she draws on herself it comes off easily.
Hence I have no problem sending her everywhere in nice clothes. So I'm probably one of these awful mums who send their kids to pre school and the playground 'dressed up'.
It also means I have become horribly slack with bringing spare clothes or wipes with me anywhere!
