We recently did a little furniture rearranging and moved all the toys into one smaller area to keep them contained. As we did, I began going through them to find missing pieces, box some up for consignment and get everything organized.
We have one tub that has “medical” supplies including a Fisher Price doctor kit and a variety of diabetes supplies that are used to treat various people, dolls, and stuffed animals.
As I was going through this d-stash, I browsed the stack of logbooks to recycle any that had been completely filled by the kids. And what did I find?
Our very first logbook that we filled out while in the hospital.
If you look closely the first few days we were doing carb exchanges based on the hospital menu. When given the choice, we switched to carb counting which seemed a heck of a lot more accurate.
I could have just tossed it in the recycling or popped it back in the tub of play supplies, but I set it aside. It’s not that I was overly emotional or that it brought back bad memories. That wasn’t the case at all. But I set it aside, just like I haven’t gotten rid of the fish pajamas, as tiny as they seem now.
