take a piece of my heart

We decided to clear some space in the garage and sell our baby bouncer and swing on CL. Actually, that statement is not completely accurate. It's more like I've been hanging on to these sentimental pieces knowing we need to get rid of them but sad to see them go because they have held all 4 kids. The swing especially has saved us on more than a few newborn nights! But Brad was like, "please get these things out of my garage, please." So I sold them. Some man came and took them both and just walked out like it was no big deal. He may as well have walked out with one of my babies! As soon as he left I was inexplicably sad and cried...like a baby. Brad was very compassionate and comforting and let me grieve. I just can't believe how quickly my babies are growing up!

Finn and Paisley also spent their fair-share of time in these seats, but I guess I never used them as photo-opps.

I may or may not have teared up while reading this.

I'm not looking forward to getting rid of my baby stuff, thank goodness we're not done yet, but I know the time is quickly approaching:(.

I feel the same. I still have my baby gear to get rid of and Kinsley is over 2 1/2. I makes me sad!
