Getting rid of the baby stuff..why is it so hard!

Bear is one in 7 days…How did this happen! How did he grow from this tiny little thing that popped into the world with a bang to a crawling, babbling boy.
We are unsure if we will have another, its definitely hard work with the 2 boys and working long hours 3 days a week as well as juggling home life, pre school runs and general mummy stuff! Therefore we have been selling things as Bear has grown out of them – clothes, bouncers, etc. However there is one thing I cannot part with for some reason and thats the baby car seat.
It has been used for both Dude and Bear. As car seats have an expiry date of 5 years, I doubt we would be able to use it again if we had further children anyway! But it has some kind of hold over me that I cant seem to shift! I don’t want anybody else to use the seat, it was how we first brought our children home from the hospital. Its only fabric and plastic but it has memories. Firsts, first places we went as a family, first car rides to see the family.
I think it will have to stay with us….just for the minute anyway. Until I can get my head around it. Maybe its the fear of having no more children, maybe its the fear of the children growing up. I don’t know. For now it will have to stay on the bedroom floor.
