From a mum to her daughters
It is only a couple of month ago I closed my webshop with maternity gifts I had designed myself. Almost everything is sold, but I have saved a few special things, which actually never came in production. I still love the design very much and have decided to keep the last few products for my two daughters when (I hoop) they get their own children. I think that it could be something special for them to receive when they become a mum like me.
Today I packed it all carefully in strong plastic bags. I am going to store it in the attic until one of my daughters come and tell me that I am going to be a grandma. At the moment I can’t imagine me as a grandma yet. They are only 10 and 12 years old. But I do hope that I one day will get that experience to be a grandma as well as a mother. Becoming a mother was so special to me and I love every bit of it. I hope that my girls get the same opportunity, but you never know how things go?
Saving other things
Next to the products that I have designed myself, I have also kept other special things for our girls, such as their first clothes and cuddles. Some toy and I have the bed they were sleeping in. That was the same bed as I was sleeping in when I was a very little girl. The bed design comes from Denmark and was 12 years ago not to be found here in Holland. Today I have seen exactly the same model as new here in Holland in different colours. Great design always come back again.
If you are a mum like me? Are you also saving things for your children and what kind of things are you saving or do you want to save? Maybe you are saving everything? I make a selection. I do not have the space to save it all and I do not think that it will be so special if you do so.
