So we're moving... in 3 weeks. That means going through, pitching, passing on, etc. All good things! I'm not a packrat by nature, but there is one set of things is so hard for me to let go of! My baby things.
I have a major longing for more children. But it's been 9 years with one conception... we had no idea what a miracle Jacob was at the time! (Mattie is adopted for hose of you who don't know that.) Anyway, I'm still hanging on to baby things because I hope there will be a day where we can use them again whether through foster or adoption or physical healing, but I'm wondering if that's just plan foolish. This is definitely an emotional thing for me.
I'm hanging on to the crib (saving this), changing table, bouncy seat, tub, tub seat, burp rags (I made all of mine), blankets, too small clothes (nephews/nieces are or will be using these in the meantime), maternity clothes, baby toys, crib bumpers and stuff. I guess also toys that my kids don't love but others might. I'm wondering if I should get rid of the things I don't have an emotional connection to like the bathtub, and save the things I loved (love hearing those same little songs on the bouncy seat). It's just hard to let it go, I think. I think in my mind, giving it all away is resigning myself that it's not going to happen and that makes me sad.
Just thought I'd share what's on my mind today.
