Like Mother, Like Daughter

My house is a disaster right now.

She says proudly.  

There is actually a small huge bit of pride in there, because I am FINALLY tackling a ginormous project. 

Ginormous doesn't even begin to describe it.

 Not even close.  

'Round here in these parts, they have these huge consignment sales in the spring and fall where moms sell their kids clothes that their littles have outgrown.  I've saved every stitch of clothing the Peanut has ever wornYou know, for those future girls we might have.  But then, dontcha know, God truly does have a sense of humor and we were blessed with the most beautiful baby boy for our second.   So those clothes we saved?  Don't really need them any more, 'cause we've decided we're done.  

You know what I mean. 

This last week, I requested that Hubs just bring it all in the living room (from our jam packed garage) so I could just tackle it head on.  

I've been working on it during nap times and at night after the munchkins have gone to bed.  To do these sales you have to hang all of the clothes on hangers facing the same direction, safety pin pants on the hangers, and finally tag and enter all the items into their online database.  It's quite the  undertaking.  Hopefully it will be worth it. 

The Peanut has "worked" along side me during the day. Of course, I was completely caught up in sorting, folding, and hanging, so I really didn't think much about it when she told me she was going to get some stuff ready to sell too. 

Last Thursday night, after I put both of the kids to bed, I come across this:

Apparently Polly Pocket had some clothes she wanted to off load as well. 

It makes me smile every time I think about it.
