Proud/Sad/Bittersweet Parenting Moments


Disclaimer: This post lacks knitting content so if you are here for yarny stuff, today you are outta luck (sorry!!)
Ok so fot those of you with kids, you know that you get to a certain point and you realize that they are growing up right before your eyes..........and you choose to ignore it, pretned it isn't happening and certainly you don't admit toanyone else that they are doing such horrid things.
Then it slaps you in the face that the cat is outta the bag........................................................................heres my weekend in a nut shell, Little B turned 1 yesterday, and he is already to walk......he stands up from the the middle of the floor now without help and then can gently lower himself to a kneeling or squatting position, he just hasn't figured out how to move his feet yet. Sad, bittersweet parenting moment.
Big B is really seriously into the potty training thing, he even told us today on the mainland when he had to go....before he went in his pants. Wooohoooo that is an awesome happy positive proud thing.
The last item I will leave to your savvy interpretation. Miss S had to have certain items added to her wardrobe. We had "the" discussion and she was fine with it. Oh my god was this a slap me in the face wholly CRUD what the heck is going on, where the heck did my baby girl go!!!!!!!!!!!! UGH............what next..........don't even go there I don't want to talk about it, on that note I will be in denial for at least another 5 years (HOPEFULLY!!)
So thats it a weekend full of memories of time slipping by and memories being made. For mom and dad, mostly mom it was a weekend of high emotions!!!

How wonderful that Little B is on the verge of walking!! That is so exciting - even though it means he's growing up.
