I don’t have lofty goals today. The only thing I have to do is take Lively to the groomer. I’m still behind on the house chores that piled up while I was in Vegas and while I had a great start, I kind of flatlined on my energy quotient on Thursday. So we have half done chores to finish.
There is a project I need to take care of that I think a lot of parents I know do around this time of year- the thinning of the toys. I piled all of Fuller’s toys into his room earlier this week and I have yet to sit down and actually do anything about it.
I’m in a quandry about the toys because there are toys he no longer plays with because they are too “baby.” And I wonder if we really need to keep those toys or if we should donate them somewhere. The idea used to be we should keep toys for any future brothers or sisters. Now that it is obvious that there will be so much space between Fuller and siblings (never our intention), is it really worth the attic space to keep these things? By the time another addition to the family is ready to play with toys, there will probably be better, less likely to cause lead poisoning toys on the market. At least I hope that is the trend.
I don’t have sentimental attachment to anything Fuller played with as a baby and am actually considering chucking the whole lot that is in the attic. So I ask… what do you think I should do? Free up attic space? Or start hording for the unconceived one?
