Why is this so hard?

I have been thinking about redoing Bears room now for awhile. Classic Winnie the Pooh is adorable for a baby, but not for a toddler who is obsessed with cars and trucks. So yesterday at Walmart, I bought him a new crib sheet with cars and trucks and Cars pillowcase and a Cars blanket with every intention of making this happen. Today I went into arrange everything for photos because I want to sell the Pooh stuff on craigslist or Ebay. I started pulling things down off the wall, and I got the bumper and quilt out and I felt tears welling up inside me. I got the pics taken and now I can't download them. I mean I can, I just can't bring myself to do it. This is my babies stuff! I don't want some stranger to have it in their house! I know it is totally ridiculous to do a screening for baby bedding, but I want a background check done of anyone who thinks about buying it. Am I just being emotional? I am all about out with the old and in with the new. Why is this so hard? I know that I could keep this stuff till he was 5 and still have a hard time getting rid of it. So I will probably pack it all away and store it until he has children of his own. And him and his wife(who I will have screened) will look at me like I am nuts and I will tell her, "Just you wait..."

Aha! NOW you understand about the hammock, doncha?

Keep the bedding for as long as it takes for that feeling to wear off. Who's it going to hurt?
