At the beginning of our marriage, me and my dear wife bought a huge closet, with so much space inside, not only could we put ALL the heavy coats in, we could also hang up our shirts inside, to avoid the wrinkles. My wife was kind and thoughtful enough, she’d bought a scented pack, hung it by the doors, and, as I’d opened the doors, an aromatic scent greeted me, and, as I’d shut the doors, there was a mirror, that I could fix myself with.
When it was just the two of us, my wife would iron my shirts, and carefully, hung it into the closets. I’d still remembered that she’d said, “This, is our common space, there is surely space for you here too. In just two years after we wed, I’d found the closet to be packed more and more, the originally huge closet, seemed to not be able to “swallow” both our things now, and oftentimes, we’d had to fold, with all our might, and SHOVED it hard, even buying those air bags, then, we were able to shove everything from the four seasons into it. But, after a short while, my wife would get her shipments of ordered clothes again, and so, I could only buy one of those traditional plastic closets, and gave up my space in my dream closet.
After we had children, every month, I’d found, that my child no longer fitted into the clothes we bought a short while ago, we’d packed up the clothes that didn’t fit, to be used as hand-me-downs, and so, we’d bought more of those plastic bins for storage, and, they’d kept my wife and my two kids’ clothes, barely, and I’d become the standardized “spare” in my wife’s mind, the last in line, after my two kids. Then, where should my clothes go? Other than sending them off into the donating box, I’d found that the packages that my kids’ diapers came in fitted just right. To pack one of those box, it’s very heavy, and I could pile another one with a lighter clothes on top too. And, there are also labels of sizes on the outside too, this had helped me sorted my clothes out.
My wife often told me, she’d been driven crazy by the kids all day long, she hoped that there’s MORE time and space for just the two of us. Actually, I too, wanted MY closet space back as well!
So, your lives are now, jam-packed with kids, and, there’s just NO space OR spare time for you two, but, it’s a kind of a sweetened burden, and so, you’d found alternative ways, like this man had, utilized his sons’ diaper packaging, as a temporary closet for this things.
