So today’s the day I start a blog…
That was all I was going to post, but I figure I should make it seem more interesting.

We only had to throw away two toys so far.
The first toy we had to pitch was a vanity that my mother (you’ll probably read a lot about that crazy woman) gave her. She said, “I didn’t want to put it together at my house because it will be too big to fit in the van to take home.” That was a nice gesture.

It was 18 inches tall and 11 inches wide. The stool was only 6 inches. Although my daughter is only 2 years old. I think it was just a little too tiny for her!
