The Upside Of Hand-Me-Downs

Oh boy! Hand-me-downs!

My sister, Meagan, who is pregnant with her third child (another girl!), just brought me FIVE boxes of little boy clothes.

Before I go any further, let me just say that I am not pregnant with a baby boy. Nor am I pregnant at all. My sister is just done having children after this one. So...

I (who am not done having children and never know when I will end up with a boy/boys) get all of the hand-me-downs from her son, Monkey, who is now 3 years old, wearing size 5/6 (geesh he is a bog boy). I, in return, give her all of Bunny's hand-me-downs for Birdy (12 months) to wear and then pass on to the new baby girl, Bee, when she is born. Once Bee is done with them, they will once again be handed down to me for my future baby girl/girls.

So in the end, two sets of clothes will be worn by a minimum of four children... Not counting any of my future children. Talk about reusing... Go Green! Woo!

I sorted out the things that I don't want to keep...

This is one of the only times will see Spongebob
 in my house or on my blog... Yuck!
 Then I picked out a few things for Bunny to wear now...

Rocking the camo pants!
  And I boxed up the rest to be stored under the house until needed...

I ended up with four boxes!
 I love hand-me-downs!
