this weekend the little girls are staying with my parents while the husband and i combine their separate rooms into one room, so the baby boy on the way will be all set with his own room come January, or February. . repainting (bye-bye, pink walls), taking down twin beds & putting them back up, furniture re-arranging. so today i've been busy moving the Eldest's closet into miss poopy shorts' closet, moving their play clothes into one dresser instead of two, and combining toys.
whew. i've never been one to hold on to anything we're not using or haven't used in a while. i really really enjoy donating big trash bags of clothes and even just throwing crap away. the house just feels lighter. or maybe it's just me. . and lord knows i could use some lighter feelings these days!
i believe the Eldest can have a shelf for her books and Miss Poopy Shorts can have a shelf for hers; we don't need half a dozen little bags or purses, they can each have one backpack and one purse for their little-bitty-doll-carrying-pleasures; one tuppeware container of little plastic things is plenty, and one shelf for stuffed animals is all they play with. and if we obtain new things or extra stuff, something gets donated. not only do we just not have the space for two wooden animal puzzles that are basically the same, i want my kids to use their imaginations for what they have. and more importantly, play outside anyways!
but man. these sweet little girl clothes are killin' me. can't let go.
i need therapy.
