Over 40 mama — Adventures in poop, patience, and first-time parenthood


The sweetest day

I do believe there is a day which will go down in memory as the bug’s sweetest day.  

For weeks now, she’s been  getting wiser…learning to stand, crawl over things, assess distance, match two objects with similar shapes, nest one item into another that is larger. She loves music, and cackles with glee when she sees the ASL sign for a word she knows. She is quickly becoming a curious, amazing person in and of herself.  

Somewhere in here – any day now – we will enter into the realm of toddlerhood, and will deal with all the annoyances and frustrations of a being who wants nothing more than to explode into herself. This will be met with some combination of C’s and my tolerance for the aforementioned explosion, and our sometimes-vast differences in parenting styles and philosophies.

I’m sure it will be fine. Ultimately.  But man, I want to put this phase in a bottle and keep it in the attic for later.

Store it for when she’s a teenager.
