Am I a materialistic person ?

July 3, 2008 at 5:18 am | Posted in Introspection | 15 Comments

Today I donated Aryan’s old clothes to an organization called Goonj. So while I was going to do that , I was feeling sad and happy , all at the same time. Happy , ofcourse you know , for being able to do little for the society but why sad ?

I was feeling sad looking at those old clothes. I did not want to part with them. Each of his T-shirt reminded me of days when he wore them for the first time. How he looked cutie in them. I felt like parting away with those memories. I felt like hugging those clothes.

  11. Oh so sweet! I used to feel the same. I guess all of us mums are materialistic when it comes to things belonging to our kids!

  12. YOu are great mommy dear..

  13. Such a noble thing to do Swati. But, memories attached with them will always be there, that doesn’t make you materialistic..

  14. not materialistic at all. i still have some clothes from my daughter of when she was a baby because i couldn’t part with them because of the memories attached….and she’s 29 today! so don’t feel bad.

  15. You are sentimental. Not materialistic πŸ™‚ I know how it is when kids grow up and I have to discard the timy clothes. I got sentimental with the smallest clothes because the babies were quite small then. These days I’m too happy to give away things because I have hoarded so many things, soe things that neither the brat nor baby uses πŸ™‚
