  • To each her own.

    I did not keep belly button stumps, first teeth, or locks of hair from the first cut.

  • Yuck to the belly button stumps, but do what you want! My parents once found someone's APPENDIX lovingly saved in a glass jar when they moved into their new (but not cleaned out) home.

    Kept the first teeth for my older kids and then realized that no one (even them) is interested in it. It's just clutter.

  • My mom kept mine. It's in my baby book. Looks like a shriveled 39 year old raisin. I didn't keep my kids' stumps though. They usually fell off somewhere.

  • I have them, the first curl from the first haircut & we are just starting on the teeth! I even have the little Bandaids from their first shots too! LOL!

  • Yuck. I didn't keep the stump. I'm not even sure where or when it fell off. I was going to keep a lock of hair from the first haircut, but I didn't remember till afterward. I'll try to do better with her first baby tooth when it falls out.
