NO LONGER A BABY

As your baby gets ready for kindergarten, the memories of late night feedings and the stench of dirty diapers will begin to fade. Which is why Huggies sponsored my much needed walk down memory lane. #SecondHug

That feeling when your baby is no longer a baby

When you’re in the thick of it, you don’t see the transformation happening. Why would you? You’re busy building skyscrapers and stealing all the snuggles. You know his shoes are too small, and his favorite cat shirt is due to be packed away, but you don’t truly understand just how much he has grown until it’s time to register him for kindergarten.

I know, right?

One day you’re trying to figure out what he ate that would do THAT to his diaper, and the next day you are wondering how much time you have before he no longer needs you. When will he grow out of his morning mom snuggles?

That feeling when you realize that your baby has almost outgrown mommy snuggles

He probably doesn’t realize it, but he is your best friend. Yanno, if best friends wiped each other’s butts. Whenever you guys are apart, you can’t help but be aware of every train, airplane, and cool Corvette because they bring him so much joy. And it’s those moments that remind you exactly how much he means to you, and how difficult the first time he walks into school without looking back will be. All of the sleepless nights and diaper blowouts have led you this moment.

Just like the day you packed away the last of his footed pajamas, kindergarten means he is one step closer to only calling you when he needs something other than for you to wipe his butt.

That moment when you look at your baby and wonder when he grew up

Then there is the first time your not a baby but forever your baby tells you about his girlfriend, and you wonder why you ever thought feeding him every four hours was difficult.

What do you mean you have a girlfriend? Is she a girl who is your friend or do you want to spend time with her over the other girls at school? Did you ask her to be your girlfriend? Do you care about her? Do you hug her? Have you kissed her? How do you even know what a girlfriend is?

And as if he knows exactly how to ease your mind, he will tell you that you are the only girl he kisses.

Life might have been easier back when one of your biggest concerns was trying to figure out which brand of diaper to use, but seeing your once squishy newborn grow into a young man is both exciting and terrifying. And if you’re lucky, he retained at least one life lesson from the first 5 years of his life.
