Aloha Friday

Photobucket

It's Aloha Friday over at An Island Life! Answer my question and make sure you post one on your blog! After that, go relax because today is Friday!!

My question for this week is:

Are you sentimental about things?
I am. Tears come to my eyes when I'm packing up the clothes that my kids can't fit in anymore. My play pen that I used with Evan was recalled and I'm supposed to cut the sides off and send it in. It's one thing to give something away that has so many memories, but to cut it up? It's still sitting there waiting for me to do it.

Pin It!

I am too Dee. I have baby clothes that need to be packed up and gotten rid of but I can't. I also have baby gear that I need to get rid of but it is hard to let the little ones go.

I am sentimental about a lot of things. I have a chair that was my grandmother's that I get all weepy over when something happens to it too. ha!

Since the fire I am even more so! But things like playpens and such are less. Those are just stuff to me. It's the stuff like pictures, drawings, etc.

I am Harriet said...

Only up to the point where things become clutter :)

Anything made for me by my children and my children's baby photos.

Yes, to a fault sometimes. I just love the memory invoking old stuff in boxes!

ParentingPink said...

What a great question! I'm a lot like you - I get teary eyed every time my daughters hit a major milestone (like losing their first tooth) or outgrow clothing. I know one day they will be grown - one day soon!

I think I am half and half! Sometimes I am SUPER sentimental about stuff and other times I can't get to the trash fast enough to throw stuff away!

Max's Mommy said...

Oh yes, I am so sentimental. I keep EVERYTHING. I have a box for Max, and inside, I have the balloons/cards I received in the hospital, my son's shirt and hat from the hospital (that I had to steal..oops), and bracelets. I can't let anything go!

Angela said...

I am so sentimental too. It's only gotten worse since I had kids.

Whimsical Creations said...

I am sooooo sentimental.

Sherri @ Luv a Bargain said...

I am so glad to know that I am not alone:)

Steph said...

YES! Especially over my girls' clothing when they outgrow it, and even more especially when it's something they wore often. When I see footies with the animals on the feet at the store, especially preemie ones, I have to walk away, quickly!

Auntie E said...

Yes, that why I'm such a pack rat,lol. I am just now getting rid of baby clothes my teen wore. They are a few I just can not part with. One from Italy..We bought it over 25 years ago while there.

Very much so!
I think I am even more now while my husband is deployed too!
I was trying to go through my sons clothes... but each one had a reason why I needed to keep it to show my husband when he gets back...
I am realizing now that my hubby is a bit the same way with our baby!
So sweet

Night Owl Mama said...

Awww OH OK ya caught me especially with movies I'm constantly crying over things and it doesn't matter if its happy or sad. Lol I"m a sapp!

Mighty M said...

Oh yes, terribly so. :)

Jenny said...

I'm not as much as I used to be. I am sentimental about the things my Memaw gave me or made me, but that's about it.

Katie said...

horribly sentimental - even worse so after having a child!

KIKI said...

Only when watching movies or tv. I am not sentimental about objects.

Kimberly@PrettyPinkMomma said...

Way too sentimental - just look in my garage! My husband tries to throw out everything but not me, I wanna hold on to the memories :)

Joy said...

Some things, yes. It's hard for me to watch old videos {DVDs} of the kids when they were little.

KK said...

Nah, I'm a thrower. It drives my mom crazy that I throw everything away. She always asks if this year I will save the birthday card she bought?!
