Just Sharing My Heart This Morning


Been sorting through the kids clothes, bagging up the stuff too small, cleaning out stuff in the nursery....

I am so sad.

It is so weird to think we might be done having babies.... so strange.... so sad.... I feel on the brink of tears. 

I have been trying all week to mentally prepare that we  might be done, to figure out how to clean out the stuff and move on, but it is a lot harder than I thought.

I thought  I  could be ok with it.... I am not sure. 


  1. no worries. i'll have babies for you and then you can come and babysit! love you, sis.

  2. I say just have another and feed the need.

    That's what I do. I feed the need. Right now the need is for spaghetti, though. :)

    I know that bittersweet feeling, though. It's hard to say goodbye to what was such a special time in your life.

    How sure are you that you're done? Cause I was pretty sure we were done....

  3. I'm having a hard time. We might be done.... this might be my last pregnancy! We decided a long time ago that we wanted two kids (actually after our miscarriage we decided one was enough, but God knew the desires of our hearts!), but now that I'm on my "last" pregnancy, I'm not sure if I'll be ready to be done! I'm having a hard time accepting it. And I'm sure when the time comes to pack up the baby clothes and get out the toddler clothes (again), it will be even worse.
    That said, are you suuuuuure you're done? :)

  4. Oh my heart is with you dear sweet daughter. But I am sure that you won't be sure you are done for quite a long while. Just enjoy where you are with your children right now. Just because you are packing things up doesn't mean yet that it is sure - just delight in the extra space :-)

  5. good advice from a great momma! i can't imagine how this must feel, crystal....

  6. As dumb as this sounds, I was getting all misty-eyed while packing away the little pink accents in the nursery, thinking that I may never have another baby girl! The ridiculous part of it is that I'm having another baby!! I don't think it's ever easy to think about moving on...

    Oh, and Jordan jumped off the side of the hill in my picture.

  7. I know what you mean. The Husband and I compromised at two kids before we were even married. I mean I cried in the hospital when we had The Girl because we were only having one more and now I'm packing up the 6-9mo clothes to make more room for The Boy and I can't bring my self to donate it just yet.

  8. I'm certain some orphan(s) would love to join the Circus! Imagine how much love they'd know!

  9. I just rid of all of my baby stuff, it took me several months to get used to the idea. Ever time I thought about it, I would literally cry. I wanted a little girl so bad! But after 4 boys and my hubby thinking I am a crazy woman ;) I just sold it all at a garage sale. I still get tears, but my hubby says if we decide to adopt (which I want so bad!) then we can always buy more...

    I will pray for you, please pray for me too! THis mama don't want to be done! =)
