Twice a year I rearrange the closet of Boo Boo La La and myself - Spring and Fall.
Usually by now I have completed this project. And I would have been wearing my flip-flops for weeks. However, unless you have been living under a ROCK, you know that I have not been able to do this migration as we had snow as recently as MAY 3rd here in MinneSNOWta. But, Saturday, I had enough. And despite the FRIGID 32 degrees outside I made my way to Boo Boo La La's closet to pull out the winter clothes and things that are too small and pull out all the fun stuff that I have accumulated over the years for when she would be the size she is now.
Yes, yes I am that mother who bought a size 7 raincoat with kitties on it for my child when she was 3. It was at Once Upon A Child and I would never see it again - it HAD to be purchased.
Some things never leave her closet. And every time I do the closet migration I pull them out, sigh, give them a kiss, and put them back into their hidey holes.
It is a sweater that T-Bone's aunt gave to Boo Boo when she was a few months old. So CRAZY, yet so amazingly fun.
Plus, there was the day she SMILED the biggest smiles and I really started to see her personality.
I love that sweater.
