Blessings in a Bag

So I have been cleaning out Nadine's things in the hopes of starting the wall works (ie. stenciling silhouettes of birds) and working towards completing the nursery. Finally. Maybe in time for Eid ul-Fitr this year. Hopefully.

So, Nadine apparently has a gazillion number of too-small-for-her-bodysuits and separates (a few of which are unworn at all!) stashed in storage boxes.

Because I was (and still am) against buying stuff blatantly pink and frilly and frou frou, most of Nad's clothing are gender-neutral (think white, yellow, green and a couple of reds and purples). And yes, in case you want to know, I do want to have another child sometime not too long down the road to pass these down but I don't think s/hewill need like 50 pieces of body suits in his/her first 6 months of life.

So the hunt began for needy families and organisations who may find a few baby's clothes and toys useful. And thanks to a friend who pointed me to the right direction, I am probably going to get in touch with Blessings in a Bag.

Better still, we're all headed to Phuket at the end of the year, we may yet lug a couple of bags over for the kiddos in Phuket! I'm excited at this possibility.

So this Sunday, happy from the trip to Ikea I will be I am sure, M, Nadine and I will delve deep into the storage boxes and sort out what can be given away. And since we're at it, a trip to Popular to get some school stuff all bagged up at the same time to donate.
