Yesterday I did the dreaded clothes clean-out in Lauren’s room. I pulled everything out of the closet and drawers and went through each item to make three piles: Goodwill, garage sale and might still fit next summer. Wow, what a chore! I found that it’s a bit of an emotional drain to go through everything. There were some items that I had a hard time putting in the Goodwill and garage sale piles. I still had some things in the closet that she wore in China and things I had purchased back when she was only a dream to me that now have been worn and no longer fit….sigh. I have to admit that a few of the things I couldn’t part with went into the box for next year even though I know they won’t fit next year. ;)
I told her that we’ll put a Mickey in every night and when the last one is in its pocket then it’s time to go visit Mickey Mouse where he lives at Disneyland. She asked…and Goofy too? Yes, baby, Goofy too.
