The day has come...

I don't think I'm ready.

I didn't think it would be a big deal.

But evidently it is.

Because now I don't want to do it.

It's an inevitability in every mother's life.

Just has to be done.

And now is the time.

It's been standing for six years next month.

It's held three children.

Yet...the need for it in our house has come to an end.

So sometime tomorrow...









...we will take down the crib.

And I'll probably cry.

Oh yes, I've had to do that 4 times. It's so hard. Praying you will have comfort and peace as your little one transitions to the "big" bed!

We will be doing that in the next couple months too...have had it up between two children in the last 3 years....I will likely cry too. I pray that transition to the big bed goes well:)

Awwww, that's so sweet. I must admit that once Levi is ready to move into a big boy bed and we take down our crib after having it up for 3 1/2 years straight, I will probably shed tears of happiness. Ha ha ha, it's all perspective!

Wait, what?! What about that fourth baby?

Kel said...

I completely understand. I cried when I took ours down. Even after we sold all our other baby stuff, I refused to sell the crib.

Just have to ask- do you think it will ever go back up?

When I saw the title - I couldn't click fast enough- I thought you got into blogher. I was so excited.
Now I am just said about the crib thing.
I love the crib- my husband and I are currently going back and forth on whether or not we should take down our 2 year olds and put him in a toddler bed. I want him to stay in the crib forever!!!!
I am sure it will go smoothly for you guys.
Have a great Sunday.

Oh, I hear you.

Kelley...I don't know. No permanent fixes so-to-speak around here, so anything is possible I guess. I'd prefer to adopt, though.

our home to yours said...

oh chrissy, yes adopt. I have 3 biological children (my youngest is 27) and 2 years ago my husband and I adopted our then 7 year old foster daughter. And despite the challenges, she is as much a blessing to us as we are to her.

Aww =(

WOW, how did that end up? Tracy and I will probably be going crazy after we get rid of the high chair, Tracy's gmom got it for Carson almost 7 years ago and it is still being used by Camlim
