I suppose she comes by it honestly, I mean Bobby and I both have a hard time letting go of "stuff". But, my goodness, Munchkin does not want to let go of anything...not a scrap of paper, not the giant snowman I pulled out of the attic with its face chewed off, not clothes she has outgrown and most recently she wanted to keep the "sprinkle cheese" container she emptied at dinner. I understand wanting to keep some things that have sentimental value but come on! A cheese container?
We also are swimming in a sea of paper that keeps coming home from school. I have resorted to a shoe box until the end of the semester and then I will sort what we will keep. Don't get me wrong I am so glad to see what she is doing at school so I am glad for the paper but I don't know how to contain it! If you have school age kids how do you contain the paper clutter? And how do you get your kid to let go of the stuff she really does not need to keep?
