I think I am finally ready to let go of all my baby gear. Car seat, swing, stroller, baby bathtub, bouncer, pack-n-play, etc. You know, EVERYTHING! It has taken me a year and a half to get to this point, but I think I am ready. There is a great consignment sale coming up in October called Just Between Friends, and you can take all your stuff there for people to purchase. You get 70% of the sales price on everything and you pay a $10 entry fee. I think I got enough stuff stored in my attic to fill their whole sale. :-) This has been a long time coming, but after this horrible experience with the adoption, and my horrible experience with the infertility specialist, I think after this adoption I will be done. I have always vowed that I was NOT going to be an old parent. I had set a limit of 35 of introducing new children into our lives. Right now I am 32, will be 33 in January. I know, not that old, but I want to be true to my convictions. I don't think I can go through another adoption, at least with this current agency, and I know the chances of me conceiving naturally without intervention are slim to none. So it is time to let go, and move on. Don't worry the adoption is still going, but who knows I might be 35 by the time we are done at the rate we are going.
On a lighter note, Camden starts pre-school tomorrow! He is so excited to go to "school!" He will go two days a week for 5 hours a day. I am excited for him to go, he doesn't get enough time with other kids, since he is not in daycare, and has no siblings, but I am fearful that I am going to be BORED out of my mind. I will post pictures tomorrow of his BIG day!
