Since moving into our home just over 2 years ago, we have been slowly getting our belongings into their ‘right’ place. At times it is difficult not to get overwhelmed by all the things we have that do not yet have a place. Some of these things are things we need, use and want but a lot of them are things which are excess, clutter and a general pain in our behinds.
And then there are the toys! Oh the toys! We do not have nearly the number of toys we have seen at other friends’ houses but they still seem to take up precious space and for the most part, I am happy for this. I want Baby Girl to be stimulated and have fun playing with them. We had a recent weeding out of those younger toys to make room for the new birthday and Christmas additions. Even though she might still play with these older toys, it seems to us that the more toys she has, the harder it is to focus on them. Knowing how we can feel overwhelmed by our belongings, we don’t want her to feel the same, preferring that she can enjoy her newest things along with a few old favourites.
