Next thing I know my parents where about to randomly give her the same type of toy, just because.
I stopped them and as usual no matter how I explain and plead with them, they keep doing it, get offended, etc. I would much rather my daughter get special experiences and activities and very much want gifts to be limited and reserved for birthdays and holidays.

My daughter, like me, seems to want to keep lots of ,y. So what i sometimes do is to put the toys out of sight, and if they are not mentioned after some time, then i donate them. Another way i declutter is to put two items in front, choose to keep one, the other to lifeline…and keep going through the items till you end up with two piles…your favourites, and the other for charity. Donating is a win-win situation, and as others mentioned, great to teach your child from an early age.
Do you leave them with the same few toys or have a stash to rotate? My daughter is almost 2 and we keep out about 10 toys at a time and rotate them every couple weeks who am I kidding…maybe once a month when I get fir time haha.

I agree fewer toys growing up is a good thing. My family had a horse farm. We were always outside playing. We made forts in the hayloft. Fought dragons in the fields and anything else we could dream up. I really miss those times.
I disagree Looking for asomeone to take care of me and my 3kids the premise that children should have limited toys. Not all children are the same, not all are raised in the same social settings, not all are supervised by parents who take a daily active interest in teaching their child what is important and what is not.

He had to clean up before he started something new, and he had to clean up his stuff before he went to bed or before he went out to play with other kids. So indulging my child with toys had none of the ill effects mentioned above. Now for a real zinger…I never spanked or disciplined or punished my child, Saomeone reasoned with him, and I never had a problem with his misbehaving because he trusted me to not hurt him if he made a mistake, but to teach him how to use his mind to do it better.

It was an insane transition, but I am so happy we get to experience life with an abundance of little people. It is a full-body sport, raising this many small people- especially with two the same age. I am grateful every day for two hands, two hips, strong arms, and a strong back after much post-pregnancy rehab.

If I can handle three, I can handle four. Thank Lick pussy Malad city Idaho for such a beautiful post! We have always wanted 3 children especially since we already have 2 boys. Need to try one last time for that girl but will take a healthy baby most importantly. The time has come for us to add to our family of four and to tell you the truth it scares me a little.
The transition from 1 to 2 has been challenging, more than we expected but all around me now I have been noticing signs that yes, we are meant to be a family of 5.
