When Lil P was born, our joy knew no bounds.. We were sooo excited that we wanted to buy everything for her [ it did not matter to us if she really needed all those dresses and toys as a baby just a few weeks old]. That’s when few of my colleagues approached me and asked rather meekly.. “would you mind using some of the stuff that our kids are no longer using?” .. N i said!! OF COURSE NOT!!! Its true that we could easily afford all that stuff but something shared with joy is most welcome 🙂 .. N so the past 3 years have been a journey of sharing joys and toys ..
From Nice satin dresses , sweaters, toys, rattles, books, cribs, buggy, rocker, high chair, walkers, baby gym, to the latest Cycle.. I want to thank my friends Sandhya ( For the walker, rocker and high chair) .. Lohit (For sweaters, dresses, cycle) .. Pradeepa ( For the innumerable toys, buggy, crib, books) .. and many other friends (Mini, Reema, Arvind, Mohana, Rahman) who have shared our joys 🙂 and wiped our tears in times when we needed support… you guys rock!!
I have followed in their steps and passed along a lot of Lil P’s stuff to other friends too.
I know its nothing great .. when there are lot of people who are sharing the same things with people who can’t afford them. I do admire them. The same people that I have mentioned above have also done a lot of charity work at govt schools and orphanages. But i don’t want to write it in this post.. They deserve a separate post.
For now, here is a big Thank you from my side!! 🙂 I love u guys!
Such a sweet post Shruthi! Sharing is a joy in itself 🙂

Recycling of toys is really great! Sharing is such a beautiful thing. You are very lucky that you have so many friends with kids around the same age.
I plan to donate all of Ash’s toys/books/clothes after a few years to some orphanage.
