So You're Saying There's A Chance

My to-do list is about 100 items long.  It's overwhelming, really, but I try to tackle it one thing a week.  Last week my item of importance was sifting through and organizing the five bins of baby clothes (size 0-12 months) that I have stored.  On Tuesday night, I got to work. 

I made a pile of "keeper" clothes that have sentimental value; the Girls' homecoming outfits, first Xmas dresses, dresses worn for photos, and Easter dresses.  I got together a box of Gymboree and fancy label stuff that I'll be loaning to a friend.  I prepared a giant bag of clothes to give to a teacher at the school who is expecting her first girl.  As I was throwing the last few outfits in the 2nd of two giant garbage bags to donate to Mothers Helping Mothers, the Hubs (who had been diligently watching the organization process from the comforts of the bed) said:

Him:  Are you sure you want to do that?
Me:  Do what?
Him:  Give it away?
Me:  What?  The clothes?  Yeah.
Him:  But, ALL OF IT?  Don't you want to keep some of it?  We'll be left with nothing.
Me:  But, we're done.
Him:  ::silence::
Me:   ::finishes packing up the last bag and brushes teeth::
Him:  ::silence::
Me:  The way I figure it...Chloe only wore a handful of the clothes we stored that were Cam's, so IF we have another girl we'll buy her new, or we'll borrow from Liz, or we'll have Laura send us all of her stuff since she is done for sure.
Him:  ::nods::
Me:  And, if we have a boy, it doesn't matter anyway
Him:  Alright.
Me:  And, it's all IFs anyway
Him:  For now...
Me:  So, You're saying there's a chance
Him:  There's always a chance....

And somewhere in the heart of the MidWest Gramma just smiled :)

isn't that funny - you go from "nope were done." to "well... maybe." that is a lot of fun! Hooray for grandma!

Lol Carol!!! I gotta say for me it is really done. I could not handle any more. My twin boys drive me crazy somedays.

What a great conversation....i love how guys communicate or rather wait for us to continue the conversation for them. Thanks for all the comments today. Your the best and so thoughtful. Hope you and the girls are having a wonderful week. Mine is starting to look sunnier!

haha so sweet. I'm giving away all our baby stuff too but there's still a chance. A tiny one but it's there. :)

That's so sweet! There is always a chance...which is why I'm glad I kept most of my stuff! ;)

Love it! We have recently had similar conversations. But for us, our next little will come through the miracle of adoption! ;)
