I would feel the exact same way, Dee. I get sad when I put away clothes that are too small because I think if I don't have another girl I won't see them on again.

It doesn't sound dumb it sounds perfectly normal. Like Kelly, I get sad when I put away clothes that don't fit anymore.

I am the same way too....It's great to see your kids get older, but so sad that you will never have that time again.

Awww I am getting sad too as I put things away because we are not sure if we will be able to have any more kiddies. I constantly get teary eyed thinking that Jacob maybe my last baby. I can't imagine selling all their stuff, I would be a huge mess. Good luck, hope you make it through the day.

I did the same thing when we have gotten rid of stuff. It's hard, watching time slip by. I talked to an older lady the other day and she said it's always a little sad to leave the past behind you, to watch your babies grow up.

I think that is totally normal! I get sad just putting things up "for next time" because Matthew is growing up. I can't imagine how I will be after our last baby.

I'm late posting.

I saved a lot of Norah's newborn clothes for her baby dolls, I can't seem t let go of the bassinet that all three used. All other clothes and things I have been giving to others and I cry everytime I have to box them up. Her swing will be going soon, she hasn't used it for a few months but I haven't had the heart to gt rid of it. She's my last baby, she wants to grow up and I want her to stay a baby a little longer.
