The Lack of a Post

The lack of a real post this morning is brought to you by the Great Shoe Organization (in which every pair of shoes in the house was lined up, tried on, and determined to be too small, just right, in, or out of season) and the Great Clothes Organization in which various summer, fall, and winter clothes in 24 months, 2T, 3T, 4T, 5T, 6T, 7/8, and 8/10 were examined, washed, folded, sorted, and otherwise handled to the delight of my girls, the obliviousness of my sons, and the exhaustion of the mama.

To my annual dismay, it is a process that will continue for the next few months as the warm weather truly disappears and more clothes need to be put away.

In addition, the Great Gloves-Mittens-Scarves-and-Hats Organization and the Great Sweaters-Jackets-Coats Organization are yet to come.


  1. I'm glad it's not just me who feels like children's clothing is taking over my house. Good heavens. Luck to you!

  2. Every change of season it occurs to me how much easier this would be if everyone only had two or three sets of clothes that they wore to rags as in pioneer times.

    But then I'd have to make two or three sets of clothes for all the children over and over again. And maybe spin the wool and weave the cloth and really that would be at least as overwhelming as digging through closets and boxes.

    Really, I want to be landed gentry and just watch over the servants while they do all the work.

  3. Oh, the bi-annual "Changing of the Clothes". Normally, in our house, the coming seasons clothes are tried on, washed and then put in a laundry basket where they reside beside our bar until the weather cooperates enough to empty the drawers & closet in the bedroom of the previous seasons clothes. least a month of clutter & chaos.

  4. Let's all move somewhere where the weather never changes! (Preferably somewhere 70 degrees and mostly sunny year-round.)

    Sigh, but I'd miss the seasons.

  5. Yes, it's that in between season thing where the weather goes back and forth from summer to fall that just drives you crazy with the kids clothes. I finally cleaned out Anthony's drawers and found some newborn socks in there, and he's 2 and 1/2, if that makes you feel better!


Comments make me happy; thanks for speaking up!
