This past Friday and Saturday we had our subdivision garage sale. I'm not a huge fan of having garage sales but I had a lot of stuff to get rid of and I knew that this was the best way to do it.
Most of the stuff that I needed to get rid of was baby stuff. All of this stuff has been down in my basement for a while now and I finally decided it was time to just get rid of it all. I spent time cleaning, washing, and adding batteries to all of the bouncies, swings, and push toys. I lined them all up and then . . .
I got really sad.
This was Kanin's bouncy chair when he was a baby. The little guys on the top don't make music or light up anymore but the chair still vibrates. I remember getting this at my baby shower for him. All 3 of my kids sat in this chair.
We bought this swing when we had Grace. Kanin loved his swing (it matched the bouncy) so much that it stopped working. Both Caleb and Grace spent many days rocking in this swing.
The bassinet. We got this for Grace so that she could sleep in it right beside my bed. This one made me really sad.
And, the exersaucer. Gracie and Caleb both LOVED this thing and would bounce and jump and scream and laugh whenever they played in it.
I know what you are thinking and NO I do not want another baby. I am glad that all of these items are going to people who will actually use them. Selling this stuff opened up a workout area for Scott and me down in the basement but it does feel like little pieces of my babies just left the house.
I am excited for the next phase with the kids, no strollers or diaper bag but I absolutely love the baby phase. I know growing up is part of life but if it were up to me, I'd need to use all of this baby stuff forever.
