$ Ka-Ching!! $

As much as we are trying to safe for our children's future, it's kinda hard not to give 'the best' to them. How best is the best? From education to recreation, even their luxurious lifestyle. I have relatives who spends a fortune on clothes for their newborn child, some spends on for the children's recreations...

Me..? I have 'kinda' stopped buying my son so-called branded clothes, tho sometimes I just cant help myself. Coz I think, to the young toddler, he doesnt know what is branded and what is not.. It's the adults who keep brushing the ideas in a child's mind.. Imagine at this young age, if he is being choosy... what would become of him when he turn a teenager?? whooshh! bankrupt!!

I dont mind spending on educational materials (nothing electronic at this age), expose them to Music, Arts and languages and going travelling with them. Apart from that, we enjoy spending time exploring the outdoor! At this young age, a child is very sensitive with one surroundings.. so its important to stimulate a child's mind moderately and not with buttons and batteries to ignite the lights and noisy sounds!

Just for reading pleasure:

Toddlers being togged up in designer goods

Designer labels are no longer restricted to adults. Parents are indulging and pampering their kids with the latest and the best. Family experts worry that this could have serious repercussions on the children while retailers are happy as their cash registers go 'ka-ching', EILEEN NG and JENNIFER GOMEZ report

DKNY Kids clothes. Louis Vuitton booties. Bugaboo strollers. Stokke cribs. Angel Baby organic toiletries.
Showering a child with designer goods has started from the cradle. With higher disposal income, smaller families and foreign exposure, parents are togging up their little ones in high-end goods.

The trend, which started with foreign celebrities like Spice Girls' Victoria Beckham, singer Gwen Stefani and actress Katie Holmes in recent years, has trickled down to the masses.

It is not unusual to see babies and toddlers these days clad from head to toe in designer gear, being pushed in state-of-the-art strollers or having sweet dreams in their one-off cribs.
And parents are willing to fork out RM1,000 to RM2,000 for car seats, between RM2,000 and RM4,000 for a stroller and cribs for RM800 to RM5,000.

But when it comes to clothes and toiletries, many parents do not set any budget as they buy it for their little darlings whenever they come across something nice and interesting. [
