So i made a post some time ago .. about how my SIL " knows it all" about having a baby and being pregnant ( she is pregnant with her first) ... ** I also want to add the reason i am making a second post is because, besides gritting my teeth to put up with her, "ranting" about it makes it less stressful to put with her**
( I wrote about how she will ask advice but will argue with my answer... and thinks things like - her baby will be born after her due date because her mom had her at 43 weeks) ...
Ok well she and my brother have only bought 2 outfits for the baby ( for at the hospital) and one pair of sandals... My mom gave them 2 large bags full of newborns size ( and maybe 3 or 4 that are size 3 months) ...
Ok well my cousin who also has a little girl asked me to ask her if she wanted all of the girly clothes she has outgrown ( so it would be sizes 3-6 months and 6-9 months) ... also the fact that the baby clothes she is being gifted are mainly name-brand expensive and very well taken care of....
Well SIL refused them because " she doesnt need any more clothes" ... And I could understand this reasoning IF they had the money to purchase more baby clothes in a few months when the baby will definatly outgrow the smaller clothes, or IF they didnt have a ton of extra space to store the boxes of clothing...but that isnt how it is, they never have any extra money ( she often complains about how she cant buy anything else for the baby) , and they not only have a basement, attic, they also have 2 spare bedrooms that is now houseing boxes as well ( so a couple more shouldnt matter)... this point is she thinks she wont needs any other clothes for a longggg time.
So anyways after she said that she didnt need any other clothes, I asked if she still only has the newborn size clothes and she said yeah,a nd she said they will wait till christmas to get the bigger clothes ( so its ok to be gifted with clothes then, but not now) ... I say back " well the baby will probably need the bigger size clothes before then" her reply " no she will be tiny, because I was so tiny when I was born" ...
My brother came over later to pick something up and I told him about the clothes and he said he will just sneek them into the attic because even he knows a baby is sure to grow !!!
