Scent of Sawyer

One of the lessons that Jake and Sawyer have taught me is not to sweat the small stuff.  In the grand scheme of things there is so much stuff that just does not matter in the end.

This post, however, is about small stuff.   Method has discontinued their line of babies and kids products.  I know that there is most likely a business reason why the line did not make it.  However, I just wish they could bring the product line back.  We have used their products (body wash, shampoo, lotion, laundry detergent and dryer sheets).  We used a particular scent — rice milk and mallow — with Sawyer.  We all loved the smell, and appreciated that they were natural products with nothing to harm Sawyer’s (or any of our) skin.

The smell of the products reminds me of Sawyer.  So, after he died, we continued to use the products.  The frequent and sweet reminder of him in the smell of our clothes or at the twins’ bath time is, in a way, comforting.  Now the product line has been discontinued, and it is hard to find the products anywhere.  I am sure that at some point, we won’t be able to find them at all anymore.

One more small bit of Sawyer that will no longer be in our lives.  Yes, it is a small thing.  But it is one more small thing I wish I could change.

And, a giant thank you to Evan for finding me some of the last of the bottles on eBay!
