Hand-me-downs are hands-down the best

By Melinda Mawdsley

My husband told his co-workers we were having a girl. Good, one said. She had things to pass on. A few days later, I got a call to swing by his work.

This happened...

Then this...

After several nights of laundry, we are beyond thankful for the bouncy chair, THREE BOXES of little girl clothes, bag of shoes and bag of blankets we were given. Apparently, passing baby stuff to other people is a thing people do.

(There's a matching pair of patriotic jelly shoes!)

Hand-me-downs are the best! I didn't realize how much stuff moms just like to give to other parents.
