“But it’s special to me.”

24 Dec

I’m so proud of Bean. She and I spent Christmas Eve afternoon going through her older toys and she was so giving and honest. Her giving pile grew and grew and at one point she said, “I don’t want to look back at the give away things because then I might change my mind.”

I know this is hard for her. Usually we’ll go through things and each time I hold up something she’ll say, “But it’s special to me. So-and-so gave it to me.” This time though, she told me it was special then said, “It will be special to another kid now.”

Maybe she knows Santa is watching? Sounds like a Christmas Eve tradition has been born!
