The more children you have, the less nice clothes you have to hand-down. Even if the item is brand new at the start of a season, it may not be wearable in the next season.
(I'm not sure if kids just get messier the more you have, or if parents just get more relaxed about what they let them eat and where they let them play. I'm sure it's not because I spend less time treating stains than I used to. I think I like the "kids get messier" theory.)
