I'm thinking about getting Emma a haircut. Some days, her hair is curly and adorable, but other days it's straight and looks very mullet-y. Are part-time curls worth the price of a part-time mullet? I'm not sure yet.

Emma loves to cook lately. We bake things every day, a few of which have been ruined because I tried to make them too healthy. The good news about that is, if Emma helped make it, then by-golly she wants to eat it. She apparently hasn't developed an aversion to eating cardboard yet.

I've been going through piles in our basement in an attempt to reduce the amount of "stuff" we have sitting around. We have a large collection of baby things that were never used or used maybe once or twice and I'm tempted to get rid of them. They take up a lot of space and, if we didn't use them the first time, we probably won't use them for the rest of our kids. Crib, Pack N Play, walker, Diaper Champ, cradle, bath seat, an unopened bouncy seat...hmmm, what to do with these things?

You should donate all that stuff to a Victim Support Service shelter, for women who have been battered and go there to stay with their children.

You know me Sarah, I say save it until you have another baby. They may not all be as good natured and happy as Emma has been and you will not have as much time to devote to other babies as you will have Emma to look after. Your Aunt's Mary and Nancy did a good job of cleaning out our shed and part of our basement last week. Stuff is hard to get rid of if you have pack-rat genes.

My suggestion was going to be, sell them on e-bay and use the money for yarn or garage sales, but after reading Abbie's suggestion, I feel guilty about my idea!

Free your self of it all! You can go to garage sales and pick up what you want when the time comes - cheap. My stuff from Will sat in the basement and we never pulled it our for Jack. I just forget to use that stuff, really is all.

Emma does look pretty mullet-y here. I am somewhat of a haircutter myself; why don't you bring her up to Kirksville and I will have a go with my clippers?
