Feeling nostalgic

This beauty got sold the other day:


(The stroller, that is. Although depending on the day I may have offered the children as well. :)    But I'm feeling a little nostalgic.  This was such a part of our family and our home for the last few years. (How could it not be, sitting in the middle of our living space for the last 3 years??? That was the final deciding factor of why it had to go.Besides the fact they all walk everywhere now.)  This stroller allowed me independence, saw me through downpours, Disneyworld, restrained children who could scream the entire walk home, and brought us no lack of attention.  I will miss the comments. I will actually miss the stares. I will miss strolling down hip Lincoln Road with you and hearing the gasps and the commentary from the single and swanky crowd. I am sure you inspired birth control among countless passersby.   

But I will welcome the open spot next to the kitchen table. And the fair penny you fetched when we sold you. So long.  I doubt the next owners could ever look as cool in you as we did.  :)

Hee, hee on the birth control inspirations! I felt the same way when we gave away our double stroller...

It is a little sad, indeed, to think of it going away, but the extra room will be a blessing.

I always feel a twang of nostalgia as baby things leave - but within days I am just happy to have less clutter :)

I was just writing in my scrapbook about how we were the first to see "the stroller" in person at DisneylWorld! Sort of sad to see that thing go, it was quite a sight.

Oh, Jen! A new chapter in life? Well, kind of. But, getting rid of the stroller is a big deal!
