Mazzy goes to a toddler transitions class two mornings a week. I don’t know if this is something all parents do or just parents in NYC who are terrified their kids won’t get into the right preschool. Whatever the case, it means my daughter brings home a lot of artwork.
We’re talking at least three to four paintings a week. And I have every reason to believe this will continue for the next two to twelve years.
I am a sentimental person (or so I have discovered) who lives in a NYC apartment. Which means I can’t just throw Mazzy’s paintings into a random drawer or closet— they are all taken by useful items like pots and underwear.
So I have begun to explore my options for both displaying and storing my daughter’s art.
As well as trying to get used to the idea of throwing some of it in the trash.
