How does a small closet hold so much stuff!!!!!???? We ended up with 3 large (as in 33 gallon large) garbage bags, and three diaper boxes full of clothes to get rid of. I need to look through the boxes because I think there are preemie clothes and newborn things in there that I can donate to the local pregnancy crisis center. I figure those girls can use it more than Goodwill, right?
It felt good to get it clean. Now, I just need to inventory the girls' drawers. Then, I can decide if they have enough clothes for fall. I hate trying to plan for seasons. It is so hard. How will they grow? What size will they end up in during the season? I have been burned before by buying too big. When I tell people I struggle with this, I always get weird looks. Then, I remember that not many people have experience with kids at the bottom or that aren't on the growth curve. Most kids actually grow more in a season than mine. Sarafina is still in 12M clothes at 21 months, and will start out the fall season in 12M clothes. If she wasn't so tall, she would actually be in 6-9M clothes weight-wise. And, she isn't really tall, just too tall for the clothing size.
