Don’t freak out yet.
I’m not going any where.
No one is leaving except…………..
…Baby clothing. I’m donating a bunch to a friend who is having her 3rd baby in April. Her first were both girls, so that leaves her a bit stranded. Since I had a gazillion boxes of boys clothing from 0-12 months, I thought it was time to purge. Weeding out clothing for my keep pile was hard, and even harder to say goodbye to it all. Saying goodbye is hard to do.Why is it so freak’en hard?
Well, I do plan on having another baby. Yes baby #3. I’m either really insane or just a little, but either way we are waiting for a while. Try 2+ years of waiting. I don’t want to invest in a new wardrobe come baby #3. But in the mean time, I don’t NEED a gazillion boxes of boy clothing hanging out in the 4th bedroom, where I currently hoard more baby things. I sorted those gender neutral clothing out and saved them into a pile for later use, JUST IN CASE ITS A GIRL. I also kept those clothing items that I just couldn’t part with. Those itty bitty clothing is just so adorable and makes me want to dress my cabbage patch doll with. (who’s in the 4th bedroom, hoarding mess).
With two boys later and a gazillion boxes of clothing, something has to give. I choose clothing obviously and it feels really good to have done so.
I constantly think to myself, ” by giving these clothing away, does it mean I am subconsciously done with have kids?”
Despite the voice, de-cluttering this house and letting things go, doesn’t mean we will never have more kids again.
