What to muse about today?

Bottles and stuff

Today I took the last (well all but one!) of Ashlin’s bottles out of the kitchen.  I’ll pack them up for sale or donation soon.  Or even re-purposing – this site had an awesome idea to store spices in the small ones.

It’s a bit of counter real estate that’s been reclaimed.  The nipple and ring dishwasher tool, the strainer I would dry the bottles in neck down.  We didn’t get one of the fancy bottle trees, the strainer worked just fine.  There’s a little less clutter and chaos in the kitchen now.

It’s a big milestone.  The baby doesn’t need bottles any more.  Well, except when she wakes up in the middle of the night and will be satiated with a bottle of water.  But except for that one little bit of baby, she’s growing up.

It’s melancholy, but so full of promise and excitement, at the same.

They’re in urgent need of things like bottles, formula, diapers, all things kid, especially stuffed toys, since they often go with the kids.”

      Leanna, that’s a great idea. Not sure if there is a shelter close, but I will look around, I think the doctor’s office has a flyer or would know if I called.

      I haven’t purged the toys yet, but I will keep that in mind too.

          Oh, thanks! I’ll remember that, if I can’t find anything. Shelters are so needed, more than we realize.
