I’m not trying to say anything about my son (he’s only 8); this post is actually about me. If fact, he taught me a valuable lesson today through this. Trust me, I do this same thing; however, it never seems this cut and dry when I’m the one that’s rationalizing my decision.

So, the reason for this short little video is to remind myself of how easily we forget that the things that seem so “needed” right now just end up discarded. Just like dresser in the background.
