Ode to the Swing


Oh you magical swing, you gently lull the baby into a dream filled sleep for hours, yet now we find we are too dependent on you. Why must you stop swinging at 24lbs? Can you not please swing till they are in 1st grade. We try to sleep without you and only manage 35 minutes, yet with you its a lovely 4 hours. You are a God send, yet you are evil at the same time. How can this be!? I love you and hate you, I need you but want you out of my house. Help!!

I will cry when she gets too big for the swing. CRY!

Oh yes! That swing is truly a Godsend! Hudson loved it and believe me, we let him use it until it would barely swing anymore, lol! He didn't care too much for the Papasan bouncy chair gadget, but the swing....he LOVED it and so did we! :)

I have NO idea how moms survived before swings were invented. I was SO sad when Matt Matt outgrew his. Vive le swing!

Do you have a travel swing you can pack for the Michigan trip? Do I need to bring a swing to you?

Graco has one that holds up to 30 or 35 pounds, I forget which. We used to sleep through the night with that thing. I miss those days.
