Bittersweet

We retired Aubrie’s swing today. She is really too big for it and just doesn’t enjoy being in there anymore. I actually got teary-eyed as I watched my husband disassemble it. Last time we picked it up in 2005, I knew we would use it again. This time, it’s really over. No more tiny babies to swing. Even though I know we are done having kids, it is still hard to admit that it’s come to an end. Am I completely nuts?
