New Clothes vs. Hand-Me-Downs

So, Inez has been pretty jealous lately because Gwen has been getting new clothes. Now, when I say “new,” I actually mean hand-me-downs. But they are new to Gwen, and that’s what Inez sees. Pajamas have been the main focus lately as Gwen has been getting to wear a lot of new ones with this cold weather. So, I decided to use some of my flannel stash and make a pair of pajama pants for Inez.

The flannel I had was pink with horses all over it. If you know Inez, then you (like I) would have thought the jammies would have been a HUGE hit. She should have been the happiest little five-year-old, right? Nope. She complained that I didn’t make a top to match the bottoms. At that point, all I could do was shake my head and sigh.

What she doesn’t know is that pajama bottoms are super easy for me to make. It’s the top that I don’t even dare try.

Sleeves? No thanks.

A collar? I’ll pass.

Oh well, at least I still like them. And, I’ll give her a few days… I have a feeling she’ll come around.

Pink! With Horses!? Really, how could she not?

    Maybe a pink T-thirt (long sleeves) with a horse patch from the flannel on it would suffice.

    Mom, that is the best idea ever! I’ll be sure to give you credit for it when I do it! I miss you being near—you and all your wisdom. Love you!

    all you have to do is tell her you will give the pj pants to gwen and she will be all over them.
