No, this isn’t a post about Frozen, though it is a fantastic movie. This is a post about my daughters clothing.
A new Carters / OshKosh B’gosh opened by our house and they were having an amazing sale. Both Bobby and Cordelia needed new clothes so we packed up and went over to check it out. We could have bought the entire store, everything was so cute! But I digress…
When my son was just a baby, all the clothes that he had grown out of went in to a bag and that bag went in to the basement, stored for the next baby. This time there is no next baby, and packing up all of the clothes she has grown out of to take to goodwill was really difficult. It’s weird, because there is no part of me that wants another one. The plan was always to have two and I am totally okay with that. Maybe it’s because it seems to be going so fast… she’s standing already and I go back to work in 3 months! What do they say? The days last forever but the months disappear… something like that anyway.
As I was going through them I kept saying “I’ll just hold on to this one” and “I will put this one in her memory box”, but that ‘one’ quickly became twenty. The logical and reasonable side of me came through and I decided to only keep the one she wore when she came home from the hospital, just like I did for Bobby, and let the rest go. I did however need to take pictures of some of my favorite pieces and thought I would share them with all of you.
I hope that they end up going to a family who needs them, and that they end up loving them just as much as I did. Maybe I should save myself future heartache and just let her run around in a diaper… it’s warm out now so the cold won’t bother her anyway… but then again, she does look pretty cute in her new clothes too.
