i have bitten the proverbial bullet: i am going through all of BC's baby stuff to figure out what will work for our little boy and what will not.
i mentioned to BC and BS that i would be doing this soon, and BC, in her cheeky little voice, piped up, "but mama, won't you need to save the little girl baby stuff for my little sister?"
i don't know whose jaw dropped further - mine or BS's. "honey," i said, "i don't know that we will have another baby after your little brother."
she still insists that we should save stuff. clearly, she inherited the worst of BS's and my packrat tendencies.
i have found a shitload of stuff that the little boy will be able to wear. we especially are pretty well stocked on 3-6 month old wear, but we aren't too shabby on 0-3 stuff, either. we can certainly make do. and i don't think i have opened all of the boxes yet. sheesh.
meanwhile, i am also moving BC's toys into her "new" toy room, AKA the sun room, probably the finest real estate in the entire house. this way, i am hoping that she will play more independently while i am not too far away in the kitchen or family room. i have taken every single KIRA doll i have collected (thanks to the efforts of my mother, my mother in law, and myself) and put them up to decorate the top shelf of the room. (the former inhabitants kept their fine pottery collection there. my, things change.) you see, for a year or so, Barbie had a friend (nearly identical, of course) named Kira. so we have the WNBA kira, the butterfly tattoo kira, the kira in the near-princess leia bikini, etc. (how often do you find a barbie with your kid's name?)
they don't make kira dolls anymore, to my knowledge anyway.
