You become a minimalist with a baby – especially when they start crawling and walking.
A few weeks ago I was child proofing a few rooms of the house. I swapped out outlets and cleaned up anything within arms reach of an almost-walking-toddler. I found myself finding items and tossing them. Just throwing them away! Why did I even have all this stuff? I don’t need it, don’t use it and it’s only presenting a possible catastrophe. Ok, maybe not that dramatic.
