I’m 29 and my mom recently started giving stuff to me, but not everything. My parents converted my old bedroom into an office, so anything that was in there got boxed up and sent home with me. She still has some of my school work and etc.

Most of that stuff was in a chest that I could look through and have any time I like.

I didn’t get baby books or grade card stuff.  I took a few of my favorite toys after I had a child of my own.

My parents have bins of our stuff still. My older sister hasn’t gotten her things back but I think that’s because she has never asked. I just asked my Future Mother-In-Law for my FH’s baby pictures though.

My parents still have “my stuff”.  It’s really their stuff though.  I’ll have my own children’s childhood things.  I know my mom would never part with those things, (she still has the clay plate I made in 5th grade displayed on her dresser.:-)

The things you’ve mentioned I will always keep, but I gave them their birth certificates, immunization records, ss# cards, and passports as soon as they lived on their own.

 The REST of the junk they think I should still keep, so it looks like I may be a permanent storage area until we downsize. I have 2 closets full of collector’s porcelain dolls, trophies, half the stuffed animals they ever had and all their Prom dresses and dance costumes……UGH. Forget about what’s still in the basement and garage~bikes ,skates,skis, skateboards,etc. Now that they have their own houses, I’m waiting for them to come take this stuff.

I don’t think I can part with albums and baby books. 🙁
