My SO was grabbing our 7 month old infants Halloween costume (his first one) and was putting it away and I told him to keep it out for Goodwill or a garage sale. He looked aggrivated (he hates it when I get rid of things because he is a major packrat) and shook his head in disgust.
I told him we have picture of him in the costume... WHY keep it? Are we going to keep EVERYTHING the kids ever wore?
[To give you some insight into him... he kept the first bib his daughter from a previous relationship ever wore... WITH THE BABY FOOD STILL ON IT! They didn't wash it because it was MEMORIES! Eeew!]
Is he just a packrat or am I strange for thinking that pictures and personal memories don't go away just because you get rid of the actual item?
[FYI, there are SOME - but very few- items I do keep.... but they are stuff like the first cap in the hospital and arm bands from there and stuff.]
