Further adventures in purging

My latest round of purging had the most prosaic of reasons. We needed storage space for our son’s new tricycle and some of his other stuff. You know, when I have to get rid of games for that kind of reason, I feel like I am doing something right.

I remember hearing about a dad who had to turn his man cave into nursery. Eventually, he had just three pendants on the wall. It was told as a tragedy but I decided it was a story about how kids and families and hobbies work. When we were expecting our doodle, I knew that I’d have my own version of that story.

Maybe my son will end up really into board games and we will end up with a closet or a room devoted to games. Maybe he won’t. But, right now, he will get the storage space he needs!

(When he’s a teenager, we may have very different views on storage space)
