    My boys had the hand me down discussion when we were shopping for school clothes. My youngest did not care that I didn’t have to buy as much for him because his older brother had taken such good care of his clothes but was concerned that there might be hand me down underwear. I told him we hadn’t gotten that desperate.

    This led to the great hand me down conversation of August 2013. You can hand down most shoes and clothes and toys, but you shouldn’t hand down bodily fluids, farts, half eaten sandwiches or dead pets.

    Gosh, boys are awesome.

    Is it wrong I hand my boy’s clothes t his sister? I mean they aren’t all manly and stuff but seriously, not everything she has needs to be pink, right??

  • Nancy B.

    Not wrong at all. I did (and still do) the same thing. They’re teenagers now and my daughter (14) loves her brother’s old sweaters and t-shirts. Too bad my son (17) doesn’t really have the legs for a skirt…

    My kids got four huge bags of hand-me-downs from a friend, and I had to make them only pick things that they really liked because WHOA. SO MUCH CLOTHES. But they still have like, enough clothes together for about five kids. Five kids to wear in one month. And I have three bags of clothes I’m trying to foist on someone else now.

    Because some kids are? Growth spurts happen at different ages, and humans come in different sizes.

    I had to do this earlier in the summer and I just took pictures of all the artwork before I threw it away so at least I could say that it mattered. It worked well and really freed up a lot of space.

    Damn, woman! That was some serious organizing! Huzzah! Now, cut it out, go have a nap, and keep breathing…

  • greenplanner

    No, I have it on good authority that it’s human growth hormone and stretching.

  • Ari

    That’s useful damn information, right there. If only my parents had known! I’m halfway up a stepladder just to reach the keyboard.

  • Mandy C

    I’m out of valium…could you provide more detail on that egg carton project?

  • Courtney

    I really, REALLY hope Marlo said “princess” with her lisp. That’s how I heard it in my head anyhow.
