Re: Disappointment - vent

Ah I can understand...my first 4 were each born in a different season. Now it has been 4 years so I don't have much left. On the upside...aren't we going to have fun shopping?!!!

Re: Disappointment - vent

Totally understand. DS was born in Oregon in the middle of a heat wave. I ended up having to buy more s/s stuff once he was born because I was prepared for the typical mild summers. DD was born in New England in April, and now I have another boy born in NE in May. Our outfits are all over the place, and I am nervous about digging through the bins to see what we actually have.

DDC here... you will be in the PERFECT season for garage sales! My dd's fall and winter wardrobe (tons of things plus a few dressy things and a snowsuit) all for about $50. Cute stuff too. Not to mention her Christmas dress was $0.25!

Re: Disappointment - vent

I know how you feel. I HATE spending lots of money on clothes that they are going to grow out of so quickly. I don't go very often, but sometimes I find some awesome stuff at garage sales. And luckily a friend of mine who has a boy already just found out she is having a girl so we did a clothes swap (I have a girl and am having a boy). Where in GA are you? I live near Savannah and last week I went to Once Upon A Child and they had a lot of stuff on clearance for $1. I got 25 things for $25, and some were whole outfits. Some even had the original tags on them! So if you live near one (or if anyone else has one nearby) you could look there.

Re: Disappointment - vent

Rachel- Another mom on here swears up and down that this cleaner will get out every stain possible. She has used it for 5yrs. of 4 kids and hubby and has gotten out every stain she has ran across....she even got out 30yr. old yellowing from her own baptism dress that was up in the attic. But anyways, I am getting ready to order some to see how it works and getting all the old stains out of new LO's clothes....she said she has gottten out all old stains that were left on clothes and put in attic (formula, blow outs...ect.)...tough stains and clothes with lots of stains she would soak in the bathtub for awhile....her longest soaking was 3days....but she has never had to soak longer than that, and has gotten out everything It's called Nature Bright (I think?) and H20...both can be ordered off the website. They are each like 11bucks...but they are highly concentrated and you only use tbsp. of it, and her H20 bottle last her about a year. But anyways...google it and it should come up right away. The website starts with a "S"....just can't remember the name. Sorry.

But that sucks! I'm sorry...it's so frustrating expect one thing and get another I hope you can get all the stains out!

Re: Disappointment - vent

I went through this big time when Emery was born. I thought I had all of Rebekah's clothes, but realized quickly that we had borrowed from people and given it back after Rebekah outgrew it, so I had almost nothing for Emery. Plus, Rebekah was born at the beginning of February, and Emery was mid-May, so their seasons didn't match up at all.

Luckily, my kids are tiny and stay tiny, so they stay in the same clothing size for several seasons. So, once Emery grew a little I had more stuff for her

And this time, the new little girl is due right around Emery's 2nd birthday, so their seasons should match up perfectly! That is, of course, unless this one is very different in size... Emery is 20 months and still in size 12 month clothes, LOL.
