MIL & FIL are getting new showers in both of their bathrooms. This is going to involve them losing part of their bedroom closet. Not really that big of a deal considering they live in a 5 bedroom house with a full basement & storage abounds....but my MIL could put most any pack rat on the planet to shame.
When it came time to empty their closet, she pulled out clothing her kids wore 25+ years ago....and brought them to our house. I've kept certain special items of clothing when my kids have grown out of them. My mother has articles of clothing my siblings & I wore when we were little, packed away for her grandbabies. But I think MIL kept it all.
The kids are thrilled. They have t-shirts their dad & uncles wore when they were in grade school. Today #1 Son wore a shirt to school with a rat driving a monster car that says "Hot Rod Ratical." B.B. has on a t-shirt from Husband's grade school complete with a bad drawing of Garfield. BabyGirl has on one of her Aunt K's shirts that puts me in mind of the knit peasant blouses that little girls wore in the early 80's. Bitsy is wearing my favorite by far, though. She has on an old blue shirt with an iron on of Beau & Luke Duke that her Daddy wore when he was 3 or 4.
I think B.B. changed shirts 5 or 6 times yesterday. #1 Son has latched on to A.L.F. shirts & BabyGirl is newly in love with an ankle length Care Bear night gown. It's like walking around in a hazy 80's flash back. Now all we need are some rubber bracelets, Ray Bans, & Bananarama on cassette.
