Now we all know just how much mothers love their children and how much love they shower on them over the years. As the children grow memories become more important to parents because unfortunately once the kids have grown and left the nest then quite often all that’s left are memories, memories of little girls in beautiful baby girl dresses.
So then memories become of prime importance. When you think about the things that stimulate the memories there are photographs, movies, toys and other memorabilia. But in the case of your lovely daughter one of the things that provokes the strongest of memories and takes you back all those years are those baby girl dresses that your lovely daughter once wore.
It would be absolutely impossible to save every dress that your daughter wore but you can of course do something about saving those very special baby girls dresses from those very special baby girl occasions.
If you were to pick dresses to save from those special occasions you might well choose a christening dress a special birthday dress or a dress worn at Christmas or even the first baby girl dress your darling daughter ever wore.
Now if you want to preserve them in order to stimulate your memories at sometime in the future then you can go out and have them packed for storing professionally or you can apply a bit of common sense and do it yourself far more economically and do it just as well.
You will need to make sure they are clean of course before starting to pack them up for storage. If you do decide to have them dry cleaned at the local store then you may want to ask them to package them as well. This will save you money as you will be having two operations done for the price of one.
Some people tend to pass on dresses they have preserved to their children for their own pleasure and then of course the children might build their own memories by using those baby girl dresses for their own daughters. Of course the story can unfold across a few generations in this manner and it is not unusual to see several generations of children’s photographs carrying the same baby girl dresses.
If you are just a normal sort of person you may get into the habit of hoarding. What I am referring to here is that as human beings it is easy for us to carry things to excess. In other words it is quite possible that your collection of baby girl dresses just begins to grow and grow.
If this has been your experience you may want to halt the growth or even reduce it. Instead of throwing away a lot of your baby girl dresses you may want to consider cutting them up and making them into a quilt for your daughter or even your grandchild. If you are considering this then it is especially important when choosing your baby girl dresses you keep your choice of patterns and designs on the simple side.
This whole process of saving dresses or quilting will preserve and stimulate you memories of your loved ones. As parents we have all suffered the pain that is involved with rearing our children.
Sweet memories are often strongest as we remember them when they were only very young. Take another look at your baby girl dresses and remember…
