yesterday afternoon, i finally got the strength to do something i've been putting off for a while now.... i gave the bassinet away. :(
i remember waddling into the sears to buy it just a week or two before the paloma was born. the thin man picked it up and brought it upstairs. and as usual, i put it together. :)
i have so many fond memories of putting a sleeping paloma into it:
...and taking a screaming paloma out of it. no, i didn't forget.
it held porkchop for a little while, but we caved and let him sleep with us until he transitioned to the crib. six years later, the paloma was using it to play pretend mommy with her triplet, fraternal, multiracial baby dolls.
now, in the reality of the new (and much smaller) apartment, i was finally ready to give the bassinet to a family who could make new memories with it.
jeez. what's next? :')
