Last weekend I watched neighbor kids try on my daughter’s too-small shoes and jackets. Moms ooh-ed over Ladybug’s old dresses, and I was just happy to watch our no-longer-needed things go to new homes.
Of course, some items found their way back to our home. Chad plucked a necktie out of the Neighborhood Swap with the question “Isn’t this the tie I got married in?” much to the amusement of the people browsing nearby. The tie came back home with us–along with a book (The Paper Princess–watch for a Picture Book Preschool post on it soon), a couple of issues of High Five magazine, an ABC floor puzzle, and a doll house.
I’d love to say that our closets are clean. After all, I took several trips from my apartment to the Swap throughout the day with more to add each time. But I guess I’ll settle for “cleaner” and put in my vote for another Swap later in the summer while I peruse Minimalist Parenting for inspiration.
