I did it.
I took a look at the huge bundle of babies clothes and kinda sorted everything out.
These are the "sorted" piles.
There are actually two stacks of clothes, one for new born, and the other for 3 months and above.
There's also a stack of nappy, nappy pants and all the assortments of mittens, bootees, bibs and hats.
All these are from my sister in Singapore whose boy will turn 2 in May.
Interestingly half the clothes were those that had belonged to Micah, then passed to Max, and then to her son. There were also a few that were Max's "new clothes". I also recognised a few that were given by me for her son when he was about due. Now they are all back here again, in my room.
I had washed the cloth nappies, and while I was putting them out, a cockroach flew into the balcony. Eeek, indeed!!
So I brought them in and now they are in the landing, still a little damp after sitting under the fan for a couple of hours.
A brief inventory of the clothings:
(Actually, I didn't count the real clothing items yet as I want to wash them first)
45 pieces of cloth nappies
44 pairs of bootees (not counting 3 brand new ones still in it's original plastic pack and maybe 6 one-sides)
32 pairs of mittens
8 "hats" (more like a big sock for the head. Hahahaha.)
After all the sorting and washing and tidying up, I just can't do the next thing I had on my list of chores - ironing.
Guess that'll have to wait for tomorrow.
Now I need to lie down and rest my aching back.
