Goodbye to All That

What? I used to be a baby?

What? I used to be a baby?

We don’t have babies anymore.

We’re heading into the big birthday season of 2009, which means one kid is days away from turning 3 and the other from turning 5. There’s no denying that, at the moment, our baby days are behind us.

Which is why we just said goodbye to all of our baby stuff. A dear friend of mine is pregnant and about to become a single mama so, when she recently came for a visit, we gave her all of our favorite baby and maternity gear — slings, mat clothes, a great baby bathtub from France, activity gyms, a bouncy seat, a beautiful crib bumper, our breast pump.

I’m thrilled my friend will be able to put so many of the things we loved to good use, but, still, I was sad to see it go and the process of going through it all brought up so many memories and emotions. I do love the baby stage.

Should we have one more? Go for a third? On most days, I think we’re done, and I love the symmetry of our little family of four just as it is. But…. We’ll see.

Stay tuned.
