Still a Favorite

E4 shirt¬† (Hey, I actually got pictures transferred to my computer within a day of taking them! ūüôā¬†)¬† My sister made a cute sweatshirt and pant set for E1 when she was 2 years old.¬† E1 wore it constantly, for months,¬†except when¬†it¬†was just¬†too hot.¬† When E3 was about that age, we pulled it out of¬†the box of clothes we had saved for her to wear, and again, it was worn over and over.¬†¬†When¬†E3¬†finally grew¬†out of it. I didn’t even put it out in the garage.

We have had some cooler days and nights lately, and on Tuesday, E3 pulled¬†the shirt¬†out of her basket and put it on.¬† I can’t believe it even went over her head.¬† She generously¬†decided¬†that really it was time to pass it on to E4.¬† E4 immediately pulled it on, and has pretty much worn it constantly the past 2 days, except when I can convince her it’s warmed up too much and she’s going to get too hot.¬†

A quick aside- E3 picked out a great book at the library¬†last week that talked about passing on beloved things that have been outgrown- Little Bear’s Little Boat by Eve Bunting.¬† I don’t know if it was what made¬†it easier to give up the shirt, but I think it probably helped.
