I Don't Know When...
I've been watching it slowly happen. But, suddenly, she is a little girl...and no longer a baby.
When I put on her shoes, no longer are they the unscuffed, pretty shoes, of an unwalking baby. When I do the laundry, no longer do I sift out teeny, tiny baby socks or tiny baby clothes. When I do the dishes, no longer do I wash baby bottles or even sippy cups.
Our newest development?
No longer...after more than a decade...does our household have a child in diapers. That's right. Our Peanut is 100%, twenty-four hours a day, potty trained. Her little Dora-pantied bum runs all over the house...without an accident in sight.
I'm excited for these changes and to watch my children learn and grow. I just wish that they'd consult me, before they kept doing it so gosh darn fast...
