Yesterday I gathered 5 extremely large trash bags full of maternity and infant clothing from within my home. The plan was to exchange / sell them at the local baby resale boutique.
The clerk explained to me that they were a bit over stocked and were only purchasing clothing that is in near new condition and weather appropriate for the season. That being said I figured I would get quite a bit store credit considering everything was very, very gently used winter wear.
Sadly, I was very mistaken. The boutique was so overstocked that I walked away with a measly $15 store credit and 5 huge bags of clothing I still need to donate. While waiting for our store credit to be updated, the clerk offered Kailani a V-Tech Alphabet Train. She had noticed that Kailani had not stopped playing with it since we arrived.
Point to the story? I arrived disappointed, and left excited! My little one was blessed with a new toy that would have otherwise cost $45 at our local toy store.
So next time it looks like things are not working out your way, hang on. There just might be a beautiful surprise just around the corner.
It's easy as mother's to get exhausted, especially with young toddlers pulling on our last nerves.
Then I'll look back at a photo like this...and all the memories of struggle and chaos of the day melt away and all I see is the beauty and joy of motherhood, and how I really don't want her to grow up too fast.
