I Know Where the Time's Gone...
First of all...I'm officially nanny-less. Yup, Becca started Parisian Beauty Academy a few weeks ago, so I'm flying solo during the day. She does come by two afternoons a week for a few hours. And...in case of "emergency", there is a friend I can call on Mondays and maybe even Fridays. But, for the most part, I'm it! SAHM Extraodinaire! And anyone who knows me, knows I am NOT so great at the "stay-at-home" part. So, I have been venturing out on a few errands & shopping trips with the trips. (More on that another time.)
Okay, so what has been going on in Higby land? Well...for one...I FINALLY cleared out the Living Room.
Remember back when our awesome neighbors blessed us with the gate? Well, they also dropped off a ton of hand-me-downs. For those keeping track, that was back on August 16th. That's right: 8 weeks ago! And all those clothes? They've been sitting there this whole time. Blows any mis-conceptions of "Super Mom", huh? Since the "super" image is gone now, I might as well confess that although I spent quite a few afternoons attempting to sort through and wrap my head around these piles...ultimately, it wasn't only me that cleared the room.
You're looking at 10 bins of clothes (well some of them anyway) for both boys and girls up to size 4/4T for boys and 5 for girls! This doesn't even include the 2 giant bins of shoes!
I sure hope styles don't change too much in the coming years. Because, at the rate Ava grows, she'll be 16 before she can wear some of these clothes!
