This past Sunday was the passing of an era. As you know, we are getting ready to start our BIG renovation project on the bathrooms. Albeit exciting, there is A LOT to get done in terms of shifting, purging and moving. For instance, I think we have decided to live in the basement. Since we are basically moving every wall on the top level, it just makes sense to stay in the basement. Doesn't sound that bad, right? Well, take into consideration there is no bedroom or bathroom in the basement and as you may recall, WE HAVE FOUR KIDS. Should make for some FUN (and interesting) times.
Back to the "passing of the era" part. With the cleaning out phase taking place right now, it was time to say good-bye to our beloved crib. The crib that has SO safely held our four beautiful children. The crib that has marked my days as a mother of small children. The crib that has been a member of this family for over 10 years now. The good news is we gave it to a beautiful young Polish family. They are expecting their first child in the Spring and I couldn't be happier for them and their new journey.
I sat for a bit and just remembered that beautiful feeling when our crib first arrived. The memory of putting together the nursery for our sweet first child. Oh how I sat and counted my blessings.
