I could have talked about this sooner. It’s not like it’s some giant secret or anything. Part of me didn’t want to jinx it – the other part – well, this new ‘chapter’ means the end of previous chapter. Sounding all dramatic – it’s not really. Most I think would be thrilled about this – I know I thought when our kids were all teeny tiny that when this day came we would throw a party. But I feel weird about it – kind of oddly… sad.
For over 5 weeks now there have been no diapers, no need for pull ups. My house is diaper free.
I should be :: throwing confetti :: and bragging to all of you who are still elbow deep in the diaper-zone but instead I find myself a bit jealous. I know that sounds crazy right? I feel a little crazy typing that out. It really shouldn’t be a surprise to me. I have a very large case of baby fever. That is also not a secret. I don’t think it helps that everyone around me is either trying to get pregnant, pregnant or have fresh new babies.
My kids are growing up. I am proud. I am grateful. I am shocked. I am not ready for the ‘baby phase’ to end. You can’t get much more ‘baby phase’ then diapers. It’s a weird change. I have had one child in diapers; I’ve had 2 kids in different sized diapers; I had three kids in diapers and then one by one they all stopped.
