Remember how I told you

17 Oct

that there have been a few mommy moments that I’m not all that proud to admit?

Well, tonight, I took my one-day-shy-of-18-months-old-kid and wrapped her up in her old hospital receiving blanket,

and rocked her in my arms like a newborn, singing “Ahhhhhh. Ahhhhh. Ahhhhhhh baby.”

And she humored me for a hot second, before looking up at me and saying, “All done, mommy. All done.”

And why did I do this?

I just told you. She’s turning eighteen months old. Tomorrow.

That’s all.

(Unless you want to swaddle me. I could use it, right about now.)

Okay. I get it. All done, mommy. All done.

    They grow up too fast, I love the baby stage, I miss it. Love that you admitted it and documented it.

      It still takes our breath away; How 2 seconds ago, she was in my belly, and now she sits and talks to us and walks around and now I am crying again. Sheesh!
