Babies No More

I did something strange just now.

It's not really strange, but it left me with a sad, little hollow feeling in my mommy heart.  That kind of strange.

I just unsubscribed to emails from Gymboree.  Because I don't shop there for my kids now, and I haven't in a long time (unless I have a baby shower to go to).  I realize it's not a monumental event, but it is one more step away from my kids being little.  It felt important.

Usually when I get emails from them, I just immediately delete them like I do 99% of the ad mail that comes to my inbox. 

I have been working on reducing those ad emails that I receive though, so this morning I deleted it and then thought..."Hey.  I don't really need to know about the sales at Gymboree any longer."  I opened my recently deleted mail, follwed the link to their communications preferences page, and hit "unsubscribe."

I really don't need to hear from Harry & David so often either now that they no longer have a store a stone's throw from my home.

Somehow, unsubscribing from pears didn't feel nearly so poignant.
