Warning: The subject matter of this post is a little LAME (or so I was subtly informed earlier today). Oh well... I am in fact a nerd who gets excited about all sorts of lame things. But, if you’re actually visiting my blog, you have probably already figured that out about me. :)
I love hand-me-downs. Always have - probably because I was the only girl growing up and hand-me-downs were always more of a bonus than a staple. Recently my sister-in-law cleaned out her son's closet and my little guy was lucky enough to inherit the motherload of awesome hand-me-down clothes! He also inherits all of his brother's old stuff as well. As far as clothing goes, the kid is set for quite a while. The only things I’ll need to buy him are shoes. Woohoo! For some reason, now that I am shopping for 4 kids, it just isn’t as much fun anymore – feels like another tedious mommy chore.
Check out all the dress clothes - he’ll never have to wear the same outfit to church more than twice. :)
This abundance of new garb left me no choice but to sort through and box up all of the clothes that he has outgrown. I am hoping another little nephew of mine will be able to use some of them, and his mom will be spared a few trips to the mall (and Target & Old Navy) as well. She too, is now clothing 4 little people herself. Who has time for the mall anyway, right? I hope my brother won't be too disappointed, I know how he loves to shop. :)
And as always, there will still be plenty left for the D.I. Some clothes are past their prime after just one child...
