Dear Croggie

 I have a friend who just had a baby. I was nice and gave some old baby clothes that have been in the family. They were sort of precious. I was wondering if it your be okay to ask for them back after she is done with them. How should I ask and what if she says no?

Well, to start off, a gift is a gift. Usually gifts that have been given, are not to be asked to be returned. So the answer is simple in this case, don't ask for them back. Unless, you are lucky and have a baby yourself and that good friend "gifts" those clothes back!
