I tend to over-think things sometimes, so I'm just looking for some opinions...
My younger sister had a little girl about 7 months after I had my DD, and I boxed up and mailed her all of DDs clothes as she outgrew them in her first year. Now, she is having her second girl in December, and I am having another girl also (obviously in Feb). I really want the clothes back. For both financial and sentimental reasons. BUT, we are not planning on telling anyone IRL that we know the gender, so she doesn't know that I'm having a girl.
DH thinks that I should just ask for the clothes back and not worry about it. But I feel like she gets irked easily and I could see her getting annoyed if I ask for the clothes back when I "don't know" that I'll need them.
Would you ask for them back? I also thought about waiting until closer to February and assume/hope that her DD will have outgrown all the newborn clothes by then and ask her to send them then... Thoughts?
