The Plight of Minnesota Mom’s to be

Picture by Trevor Morris
I have always loved the changing seasons of Minnesota.
The sleet storms of spring,
The humidity of summer,
The beautiful changing leaves and cool breezes of Fall,
And winter with it’s 30 below freeze your breath days.
(Can you guess what my favorite season is?)
Yet, as wonderful as it is for Mother nature to keep things interesting, I find myself running out of room to put my ever changing wardrobe. I think our storage shed (which is tiny) is overflowing now with plastic bins of skirts, tops and Capri’s that wont make an appearance until next summer.
Then you add a pregnancy to it all, which ends up being like 3 different sets of clothes in and of itself…
  • The “Oh cute I’m showing” set
  • The “I can’t squeeze my butt into anything anymore” set
  • and of course (Soon to come) The “I’m gonna pop” set

Who has money to buy clothes to keep up with it all?
My saving grace has been some ANGELIC ladies who have given me all their preggo hand me downs. I am so grateful that people are so willing to share, and I figure what I get I will share when my baby days are done.
I can remember when I was younger I hated hand me downs… I always wanted new stuff. These days I feel like kissing the ground and thanking the heavens every time I someone gives me their used stuff (I don’t even care what it is!!!)
It makes me want to be more generous to others
and reminds me of the old pioneer saying,
“Fix it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without”


About tacycall

I am a mommy of four little ones. Two girls (5 and 3) and two boys (3 years and 5 months) This only consumes about 95% of my life. I try to squeeze as much as I can into the other 5%. I am a stay at home mom with dreams of owning a hobby farm with my husband and recreating the garden of Eden in my backyard. I crochet , keep bees and spend time with my hubby, cook, read and of course do a little writing.
