Update for those of you that have been following the “Potty Diaries” at my house. Jake used the potty this morning! He said “potty” , ran into the bathroom, climbed up and went. As if he had been doing it forever. Then Dad took the kids to the park and he went again when he came back. Amazing! I had told everyone at Thanksgiving that I was postponing the potty training until after we finished moving so that we wouldn’t have any backsliding during the move. Secretly, I had been thinking that this might not be something either one of us was ready for. But then, out of nowhere, he does it. And then I felt that immediate ache from knowing that he is one step further away from being the helpless little baby I brought home. Now that my diaper changing days seem to be coming to an end, I can’t help but feeling like it is all going by way too fast. Changing diapers can be a monumentally gross job, I should be happy to be done with it. What moment made you realize your baby was growing up? What were you saddest to leave behind? And what do I do next???
