After 6 years, 1 month and 4 days it was time to say good-bye to our crib. I have been putting it off as long as possible by having Nora sleep in it with the front railing off as a toddler bed but I guess it was time. We had a garage sale today and I am sure (or at least I hope) it went to a good home where it will be well used. I wasn't quite prepared for the rush of emotion as I watched it get loaded onto the truck. I think back to all the wonderful times watching my babies sleep and all the frustrating times trying to get them to sleep. I wish I could go back in time to cherish those moments more instead of trying to rush through them in a constant panic. As they get older and life gets busier and more complicated I realize how wonderful and simple those times were and I miss them. But no sense dwelling in what is gone. Time to look forward to all the new adventures in our life. Madison soon will be a first grader and Nora will begin the pre-school experience. And it is looking like I will be going back to the working world. Well, just 10 hours a week, but all these things together will be a new step for our family as we continue to grow and change. I am hoping I can stop to enjoy the simple moments we have these final 6 weeks of summer before all the craziness begins.
