If there's one thing that I am learning quickly in my 21 months of experience as a mother is that kids accumulate alot of "stuff". This "stuff" gets brought into the house and there it sits. Sometimes things find a home, but sometimes there's "stuff" that just doesn't have a home.
After Asher's first Christmas I realized there was an overabundance of things in his playroom. After his playroom flooded I was beyond overwhelmed trying to clear out the room because there was just so much. Alot was damaged or ruined from the water and I thought we had thrown out a good majority because it no longer worked. Well once putting the room back together I was wrong. It was so overwhelming finding a place for everything.
So my new goal for holidays, birthdays, or "treats" (when at the store) is to try and make them useful. For Easter I knew I did not just want to fill a basket of random things for Asher. I wanted things I knew he needed or things I knew he would play with. My child loves to be outside. I mean LOVES! He does not care how cold it is or how hot it is. He is an outside child which I love. Asher does not have alot of outside toys and the older he gets he needs more age appropriate toys! So I made him an outdoor Easter basket!
I hardly spent any money as well! I can not wait to see his face on Easter day!
