Have you saved baby teeth?
The thread about "hardest items to purge" and memorabilia has led me to ask....
Odd as it may sound, what about your children's baby teeth? I don't know why I've kept these - DS and DD each have a small pill container filled with their teeth - I have them in my dresser.
I ask myself, now and then, why am I holding on to these? (My mother never kept mine, and I can't imagine my kids wanting theirs either.) Also, my kids had to have teeth extracted (for orthodontic work and DD wisdom teeth) and the oral surgeon handed the teeth to us. (I had to have a tooth pulled a few years ago, and may even have that tooth.)
Sounds kind of gross to hold onto baby teeth or extracted teeth. On one hand, they don't take up much room, at all, but on the other hand, why keep them?
I guess I'm looking for a nudge. Any reason to keep? A compelling reason not to?
