...to change her mind.
I did a big purge recently. It was a huge wrench... I wonder if it will always be this way, or if in another few years it will get easier.
You're so going to get pregnant in the next 6 months. ;-)
Impossible. Really. Infertile + on birth control (to prevent turning into the cliche infertile gets accidentally knocked up)
You're brave. I have four years of my daughter's outgrown toys and clothing cluttering up my basement as we speak. I know I need to part with them, but can't bear the thought of what it means... even though I know in my head there will be no more children, my heart has yet to accept it.
I had to rip it off like a bandage. If I think about too much my chest hurts.
Ouch. Painful. I'm so sorry. But I hope some peace and relief comes with it...(I once thought about the fact that if I only kept one thing from each child each year--one tiny shirt, one drawing, one lock of hair, I'd still have a pretty big pile by the time they moved out...)
I just sold my maternity clothes this weekend, so I get it! And I'm listing the baby clothes on Craigslist as soon as BabyM outgrows each size. I know what you mean, about feeling defeated. I will say that after having 2, I'm sure this is the right number of kids for our family with 2 introvert parents :)
Last weekend we had one of my colleagues over so I could bequeath all the <9mo stuff to her. It was too much to take to the office! The living room and nursery are a lot more orderly now.Btw, some of the stuff we have is from DH's mom realizing that she didn't actually want to keep those key items from DH's childhood. Of that stuff, only his baby blanket has gotten any use. Much better, I think, to save pictures.
