The Dresser

Before Brennan was born, my mother found a dresser somewhere and gave it to me to put in Baby Bean's room. It fit perfectly and Bart had a great time painting it (haha, um, no he didn't) and I had a great time finding just the "right" knobs for it.  Blue stars and yellow crescent moons to go with the space theme of the nursery.

Well, it is a small dresser and I have finally replaced all the kids dressers with larger ones.  Not necessarily newer or nicer ones, but larger ones, and for these wild boys, the "hand me ups" dressers work great.

And I am ready to give the dresser away. Even have someone who will come pick it up as soon as I send a FB message with my address.

But...giving it away is like giving away the last little bit of babyhood. The last memory of any of my children as a tiny baby...even though Ethan never even used the dresser, and it was never in his nursery, it is still strongly tied to my babies in my mind.

Isn't that the silliest thing? To not contact the lady I said I'd give it to and leave it in my crowded hallway because it represents my children growing up?

I need to hop on pinterest and find a project for it...so it will never leave!  Though really, we have no need for it and it is taking up room that could be filled with other bits of greatness, like lego cities and dirty sock piles and maybe even old school papers.  It does need to go, but it sure fills my heart with an odd emptiness to think of it no longer being a part of my boys lives anymore.

3 Words to brighten my day:

The Beats Pros were designed to reproduce your source audio as accurately as possible, but that doesnt mean you cant feel the noise Beats by Dr. Dre. You dont just hear the music, you feel it. Bass reproduction is incredible for a set of headphones that arent enhancing the experience with anything other than extremely high quality parts. Bass can easily be felt, again, even at modest volume levels. This just goes to show you that you dont need enhanced bass, you need headphones or speakers that can handle audio the way it really is. I tend to trust audio engineers since they should know what theyre doing with an artists source audio better than I Beats by Dre. So I dont like to apply equalizer settings to music ever. Its very satisfying to listen to music as intended without less than stellar headphones diluting the experience Beats by Dr. Dre. So, so very satisfying.

The only way I can imagine these headphones getting any better is by possibly making them lighter, if thats even possible Beats by Dr. Dre headphones. The Beats Pros are built like shiny futuristic tanks. Nearly everything is metal or other durable materials. Instead of hinges that fold, Monster chose to make the ear cups rotate Beats by dre headphones. I imagine this will last longer than a regular hinge.
