My dh is having a really hard time finding work right now. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/mecry.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="crying"> He's been doing some jobs here and there, but not really enough. I watch my nephew, which pays the rent, but not much else. So, with winter coming, our ds needs some more clothes and we can really afford to buy them - even at used prices it is often expensive. We had tons of hand-me-down for the 0-1 year stage, but now he is too big for them all and his drawers look slim!<br><br>
So, if anyone has clothes is decent shape that they could part with for shipping - we would really appreciate it! Onesies, turtlenecks and long sleeve, jeans, sweats, fleece pull-overs, pjs, and a winter coat are all on his list of needs. We are not picky, don't care much about the "gender' of the clothing. My son is 27lbs, a bit short (30inches) and wears bulcky cloth diapers - so a big butt!!<br><br>
I might be able to trade, which I have done for a few great packages of clothes here - but our "stuff to trade" pile is very slim. I have some money in my paypal account right now, so I would send shipping money quickly.<br><br>
Thanks so much!<br><br><img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"> Anything you could do to help would be very appreciated! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Hi Megan!<br><br>
Sorry to hear you're having a hard time. Hope things look up for you soon!<br><br>
We're moving and I'm slowly creating a stack of things I'd like to part with. I'll get a box going for you - not sure what all I have in your sizes but I'm sure I have some things. Don't worry about the shipping.<br><br>
I'll pm you when I get the box together and you can let me know how to get it to you!<br>
Good luck!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

I will look through our stuff in the next few days. I think Becca is our last so I can start to part with the boy stuff. I am sure I have a winter coat around here. If I forget to reply by Thursday or Friday, please PM me.

Hi. I have 2 girls, so not much here, but I do have a Land's End one-piece winter outfit that was too boyish for us. It's a small 3T. Just PM me your address and I'll send it to you.<br>
Good Luck!

Your PM box is full, carminex, so here is the massage I tried to send to you.<br><br>
Hi! Sorry to be so slow PMING you, it has been a crazy few days. Thanks for offering to look through your clothes for my ds. He wears a 6 right now, so a 7 boot would likely fit this winter (winter lasts forever in New York!). Fleece pjs would be great and pink is just as good as any color in this house! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"><br><br>
Thanks so much. Please PM me for what I owe you for shipping! Thanks again! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>

what size are you looking for - I have 3 kitchen trash bags of boys 18m-4T - I would be happy to send some free for shipping. (fedX ground runs about 8.00 for a decent sized box.)<br><br>
mostly jeans, sweatshirts, casual stuff kwim also have a fleece lined jacket. its not for super cold weather but good till about 20 if you layer clothes.

Thanks Mamas-<br>
We have gotten 4 wonderful packages of clothing for our ds and are so happy about all of his new stuff. You guys are so great! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/love.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="love"><br><br>
I can't write you all individually because I am not sure who is who with the packages having IRL names and not MDC usernames! Sorry for the group thank you!<br><br>
Much love!<br><br>

Megan, LMK if there is still something you need. I haven't mailed a package to you yet but we were talking about it. I will fill on things on the specifics you still need, if any. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">
