Monumental Mommy Day



Well, it is gone! We took down the crib today. Between Billy and Dolly, there was no time to take it down! We took it down for a year or so before B. arrived. We have used the crib off and on for 8 years!

This time taking it down feels different. I wonder if we will ever put it up again. I wonder if our next child will be a baby,preschooler, school aged child or if we will only be Spiritual parents again. The easiest part of the wondering is that I don't have to know! God knows so we will wait on Him and hang on to the crib just in case. Not sure who would want Dolly's chewing marks on their crib anyway....but I sure love them!



The children were so excited to celebrate the "big girl bed" with B. They washed it off from storage and all piled in. At this moment, our tiny B. is sleeping soundly in her big girl bed, which is tiny, just like her!

Some times change is hard to handle, I can feel you sadness from here, but look at the smile on that little face. Pass out hugs to all?

How I remember the moves to "big girl" and "big boy" beds. They loved it, and it made me cry!! Love this picture. Thanks for stopping by my blog. Give my love to your family!

Blessings,

Hi Melanie~ So nice to meet you. Thank you for your sweet concern for the people in our area.

Do you know Stacie (Gift of Mercy) personally? She is a long time friend... so precious...!)

I remember the day we took down our crib, and I had those same thoughts. Now, in about 10-15 more years, we'll be ready for grandchildren in it! :-)

Blessings to you today...
