The moment I knew that my husband and I were expecting a baby girl, I got thrilled thinking about all the the beautiful and girly stuffs that I want my daughter to have – lovely baby dresses, cunning little shoes, chromatic hair bows, diminutive cute bags, etc. And where will I store all of these? Of course, my daughter’s closet is a basic necessity as well. So aside from the baby clothes, mittens, foot socks, crib, stroller, rocker-bouncer, high chair, mattress, pillow cases and toiletries, my baby’s own closet is a mandatory requirement (as in mandatory in the truest sense of the word haha!). Well, honestly, it’s hard to be a “kikay” and a child-at-heart mom because you tend to impart your childhood fantasies and your fashion sense at the same time to your little one.
When Keisha was born, all her clothes were store in a small cabinet just enough for her mittens, baby boots, infant clothes, cloth diaper, etc. After 4 months, when our house was extended, I converted one of our cabinets to Keisha’s closet. Bigger and better than the first one, I was able to store more of her apparels hanged since it’s my fancy to see her wearing neatly ironed dresses all the time.
With her clothes growing abruptly in number without me noticing it, my mom insisted for Keisha to have a bigger closet. She made a lay-out and I had the design and costing checked by my husband for approval since he’s the one in-charge for payment. After few days, Keisha’s customized closet was delivered.
Every time Keisha opens her closet, I see a sparkle in her eyes. At a young age, her cute dresses and everyday clothes give her much happiness. I wonder how she’ll be when she’s a teenager already. =) For sure, this one will be replaced by a real walk-in closet by then.
