Where did the summer go? For that matter, where have the past five years gone? It seems like only yesterday I was a new mother navigating my way though sleep depravation. Now I have a bright, energetic five-year-old daughter starting kindergarten next week.
My little girl is no longer a baby. She’s a kid. (She’s pointed that out to me on several occasions.) I promised myself I won’t cry when I drop her off for the first time, but I know better.
Sometimes I miss the baby days. I spent the afternoon with friends yesterday, and one of them had her six-month-old son in tow. He was a cutie, and he giggled when I made funny faces.
Then I discovered he was smiling because he pooped all over his car seat. My warm fuzzy feeling was replaced by the smell of baby poo.
I realized I’ve got it pretty good. My kid can take herself potty, I get a full night’s sleep, and every day, I get the best hugs ever.
Just wait. When your daughter is older is when the nostalgia really sets in. As for me, I'm missing the baby days.
stopping by from sits.i get hit with the aching ovaries all the time. but like you said then i remembered that i don't need to wake up every hour anymore and so i take tylenol to numb the ovaries pain.
Isn't that the truth. While sometimes I long for a baby, now I'd rather visit a friend and spoil their's and then go home for a good night sleep. Thanks for stopping by my blog and commenting. To Save a Life is definitely worth watching! 🙂
I could not agree more! And thanks for stopping by my blog yesturday!
