On my 2014 to-do list for this year (yep, that one I mentioned in this blog post), I plan to clear out the items we have in storage, and have had for years. We aren’t hoarders (well I don’t think we are) but with Missy’s arrival 5yrs ago, I’ve clung on to so many clothes, books, toys etc, just in case we have another girl. Well, we now have a boy, JD. Daddy Bunny has had me see reason and I am more than happy to let go.
I put off starting this task since January, but with spring in the air, I sprung into action (get it?) this month. First up, is a clear out of all her old clothes, withholding a few unisex items for JD and sending the rest out door. Well, that was my initial plan until a friend suggested I might want to hold on to a few items for, keepsake. Sound advice cos oh my, there are some things I struggled to part with. Not in an emotional blubbering broody sort of way. Nah. I’ts just that some items has invoked flashbacks to moments in time, events we attended, holidays we’ve had, birthdays celebrated etc. I am being ruthless though and only holding on to just a few bits. From Missy’s keepsake collection, here are just a few of my favourite things.
What childhood item of yours do you still hold on to?
