I was getting out some new (to her), clothes for Chickadee today, in a larger size, and in preparation for fall. As I was going through the box, I felt like I was looking back in time, remembering when all of those clothes had been worn. It was like being reintroduced to old friends, finding clothes that I had loved in the past, and finding a few things I had forgotten about, and can’t wait to see in use again.
The weird thing, though, was that with most of the clothes, I still saw Bunny wearing them in my mind’s eye, even though Ladybug was the most recent of our daughters to wear them. I guess because most of the clothes had been bought specifically for Bunny, and she wore them first, that’s how the images were branded on my mind. I didn’t realize that until today, though, and it kind of took me by surprise!
