My baby is turning 4 (years) tomorrow. Soon there will be no massive car seat, just a booster. Got me thinking about the other things that end or go away, and those that I miss but don't miss.
The last clean emergency use diaper, in the trunk, glove compartment, bag.
The last dirty diaper (emergency use?) in, well, you know where it goes.
No more potty seats (yay) but still helping to wipe their bottoms...
But on to another theme. With losses and transitions I find a happy and a sad. Good bye to pumping (yay), breastfeeding (awwww).
Last power outtage where we have to worry about losing all the stored frozen breastmilk in the freezer (yay), but still threw out lots and lots of chicken nuggets.
Love reading all good books to the kids all the time (and bad books some of the time) , and wondering if daughter is needlessly worried that we won't read to her now that she can read (not true, honey!!)
Didn't realize that with kids (or even just one) comes that last time I'd get to sleep late! But that will hopefully return someday.
Gave away the swing, bouncy seat, and play-yard! More space. Filled with more stuff.
Goodbye high chair. Still some laps!
Goodbye stroller. Still some carrying!
Last day of daycare. First day of Kindergarten.
Last maternity leave. Last return to work from maternity leave.
But very full lives together ahead and of course oh so many firsts to celebrate!
Some lasts are more momentous than others. You just never know. Hoping not to have any last hugs, last kisses, last sharing, last snuggles, last giggles...
What do you and don't you miss?
