Please Don't Judge - I Swear I'm A Good Person

Photographic proof that I am a disgusting, nasty, sentimental hoarder.


Yes, my friends, that would be my child's broken off umbilical cord that's been saved in her room for the past two and a half years.

  3. hehe - I held on to my older daughter's for 20 years. (Was I saving it to show her prospective suitors? NOOO!) After that point, I lost track of it, but I'm sure I'll find it tucked away in a drawer somewhere someday. We mothers are a sentimental lot. And just a little bit wierd.

  7. You guys all kept your kid's umbilical cord ends? I thought that was just a bad joke in a bad movie ... Blech. (I might still have a positive pregnancy test lying around, though, and I peed on that, so, um ...)

  8. I could have sworn I saved one of those, but looking at that photo makes me rethink. I probably just pretended to keep it in my sentimental mind. The strange thing (in this conversation there are many), is that I have no recollection of what I did with baby number 2 and 3 stumpies. Shouldn't I at least remember throwing them away?

  10. I saved my son's!!! Still got it in a ziploc baggie. But I capitulated to family opinion and tossed my daughter's. I'm sure she'll regret that terribly. :-)

    It made me so happy to see this post. Makes me feel a little less like I'm going to end up on an episode of "Hoarders." I think I'm going to show my husband to prove that I am not the only person who saved it!

  11. Hilarious, I remember considering saving Jude's, now I'm glad I chucked it, after all I couldn't wait for it to fall off!

  15. This just made me laugh out loud. I, too, have my daughter's 2.5 year old cord in a little baggie in a box in her room. SO funny. I cannot let go.
