Hand-me-downs... an NSV to smile about!
Monday, August 06, 2012
Since I have two daughters, we save all the older one's clothes for the little one. Tiny D gets to go through the clothes, keeping the ones she likes, and we donate the rest. We just went through the clothing box that was Tiny D's current size, and so I had some shifting of boxes to do.
As I got into the most recent box from Bigger D, I noticed that her outgrown clothes were all from Old Navy, sizes small, 4 and 6. Umm... could I wear these??? Piece after piece, I tried on my daughter's clothes, and ran screaming into her room saying "ohmygosh ithinkitlooksok!!! Does it???" Piece after piece, Bigger D said, "yeah mom, that is cute on you!"
I just got hand-me-downs from my daughter.
Just to be clear, Bigger D is bigger than me. She has been for a while, but until now, we were in the same size. She's 5'9", and I'm 5'2", so we SHOULDN'T be the same size. Well, now we aren't, and I'm smiling in NSV-land!
Plus, new clothes, so SCORE!
Maintenance is going well. I just have to keep finding these NSV's, so I don't miss the thrill of the scale. I can DO it!
