No More Room

FIRST KID:

Mom saves everything from first scribble on a paper plate to first toenail clipping to first haircut to every paper from school, neatly stacked in color coded, systematic boxes.

FOUR KIDS LATER:

“Mom, where’s the artwork I finally brought home yesterday? I spent 15 months working on it.”

“Sorry, Maggie, it went out with the trash 3 weeks ago. But I did take a photo of it.”

“I’m Jack, mom.”

“Oh”
