Is this pile of stuffed animals:
b) Too much
c) Cute and too much
d) A waste of fluff
For me the answer is C; cute and too much.
Stuffed animals are cute, but when you have so many is it possible to appreciate each one? Does my daughter play with each one? Why have so many?
Time for a conversation.
I asked my daughter if she played with all of these animals. Honestly. I asked her if there were some animals that she could pass on to another child.
After some consideration, my daughter decided to let go of some stuffed animals. They were all special and wonderful once, but the reality is that she doesn’t play with all of them now.
Paring down her collection simplifies things, and gives her a chance to play with and appreciate each stuffed animal.
Why hold on to things you don’t use?
