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?

    No you aren’t nuts! I haven’t even given birth yet and I’m sad b/c I know this is my last.

  2. You’re not nuts at all. That has to be sad. I think subconsciously that is one of the reasons I keep putting off having more, because I know it could be our last one.

    Not nuts at all! It’s sad to say goodbye to the baby things! My boys are 7 and 8 and I am giving my crib to my sister tomorrow…it’s been years and it is still sad!

    I have 3 kids. Our daughter is almost 5 and then 15 month old twin boys. We have just started giving all the baby stuff away and for some reason the silly Jumperoo makes me sad. The boys didn’t use it much, but my daughter loved that thing. Oh and her princess toddler bed. Even my husband doesn’t want to give that up yet!

  6. you’re not nuts. it happened to me too with Heather. it’s a sad small milestone so-to speak, and that’s when you realize more that they’re growing up.

  7. thats cause your kids are so damn cute, i would want more too.

  8. if your nuts, than so am I! I think this is normal. It is hard to come to terms with a chapter in your life closing, but with parenting, a lot of chapters will close once you are done having babies, all us mama’s can do is take it one chapter at a time!

    Awwww…I have those moments except I know I’m having at least one more. They just grow so quick!

  10. You aren’t nuts!!! I get teary eyed every time I pack away some of Ellie’s clothes. I think it just comes with the Mommy Territory.

    Btw, I chose you for an award! Visit my blog for details.
