Every once and awhile, Mom Potato starts feeling claustrophobic in her own home. This month, DP took down CP#2’s crib and moved him into a room with his sister. The result? It looked like a mighty wind came through the second floor of our house. There were toys, books and clothes everywhere. Argh.
Thankfully, there are wonderful organizations like Maine’s Freecycle Network to help Type A moms like MP. She was happy to donate CP#2’s like new mattress and crib accessories to MFN. And it was so easy! All she had to do was post, answer a few emails and within a day, the mattress had a new home.
