I would tell her your sister has dibs on them and leave it at that.

…or that your darling baby has terrible intestinal problems and all the clothes are ruined!

Or just be straight up and let her know you will be having more babies so you can’t loan them to her.

@iarebridezilla:  Pukatronic!  What kind of person isn’t just horrified at the thought of those abominable blood suckers….telling her your infested really should take care of two problems, it kills the clothes borrowing issue dead AND it keeps her from ever wanting to come to your house…but I made the mistake of assuming we were dealing with a normal person….oopsie!

@iarebridezilla:  Sorry, my sister-in-law/friend/someone not you! is already borrowing them for their pregnancy.

@iarebridezilla:  If you’re afraid she’ll ask to borrow them when you tell her you’re saving them for the next pregnancy, you could fib and tell her you’ve already lent them to someone.

Who FB messages someone and asks for their clothing?!

Glad you got a good response, though!

@iarebridezilla:  What’s so difficult about just being assertive?

“Sorry, I’m not lending out the clothes.”

You, in no way, owe her any sort of explanation whatsoever.
