The first line is my favorite: "...parenting is just an open book test that I’m somehow still managing to fail."
I've done some gross things with/for my kids, but is she a bird? I'm missing the beneficial part of this... does anyone know more about it? And is this really a thing that people do?!
I realized yesterday that both of my boys are big enough to actually hold my hand. Not wrap tiny hands around one of my fingers, not need to be carried everywhere, but actually hold my hand.
I'm not sure why this struck me, or why I even realized, but it seems like a milestone. A big one.
Like when they started consistently sleeping through the night, like when they could use their own fork and spoon, like when they switched from crying to just playfully calling out when they woke up from a nap...
Maybe that's it. Those are all developmental stages. This is a growth measurement. My boys are actually growing up.
What were the milestones for you? What was it that made you realize your kids were growing up?
