I told you this would happen! Today, after Thanksgiving dinner with 40 of my closest family members, I hauled a load of my stuff over to my mom's since I have to be out of my place in 2 weeks. I found a box that has a few of my toys from my childhood in it and was discussing with my mom what I should do with it. I'm inclined to toss it. She suggested I put them on my bed.
Because she's in the middle of some weird I-need-to-relive-my-childhood thing. She's nearly 60 (don't tell her I told you that). She painted her bedroom all baby pink and white and put up white lace curtains and has a pink quilt on her bed and her carpet is the color of raspberry sorbet. And she just bought a four-poster bed. I can't sit in her room for too long or I start craving strawberry ice cream.
She's collected rare and porcelain dolls for a long time (her whole life.) And I was really in to them as a kid and pre-teen, but definitely got over it. But I have 2 dolls that she handmade for me. And there's no way I'd ever throw them out, because they're really beautiful and my mother made them for me. But what on earth do you do with stuff like this when you don't plan on having anything to do with them until you have kids of your own and...
What if I have all boys???
