But tonight, I turned around and successful SOLD a few things too! I'm raking in the dough! (Heh. Not really. But it's neat to see your things moving onto other homes.)
While I have given away a lot of our old baby toys, clothes, etc. to friends and family, for some reason I had hung onto our Ergo carrier for awhile. I'm not really sure why, but it sat in the boys' closet, back in its box, for the last ~2 years.
Last week, a mom posted "ISO" (in search of) an Ergo carrier and I thought well, here's my chance to pass it along to a new mom in need! So, I sent her a few pics and arranged to meet her tonight to show it (and finally, sell it).
Why am I blogging about this?
Well, the transaction ended up being, surprisingly, bittersweet for me. As I pulled out the Ergo and showed this (majorly pregnant) new mama how to put it on and use it, a flood of old memories unexpectedly WASHED over me.
And, once my happy customer left, I got a little choked up.
That little carrier performed beautifully, doing its job, literally AROUND the world for us, saving both Jon and my back several times, when cuddling our sweet boys against our chests. Ohhh, when the kiddos were so small and innocent that we could just lug them around anywhere without a peep! ;-)

And now, Callum's turn!
Farewell little Ergo - I hope you keep your new family as happy as you kept us.
