My youngest turns 6 today. It hit me, my “baby” isn’t a baby any more. All those baby years are now over, we’re done. We made it!! I have a beautiful, busy, intelligent little boy. He feeds himself (still some mess though…lol) he gets dressed on his own, even chooses what he wants to wear. He uses the toilet on his own. He can ride a bike, he can say the alphabet on his own, count to over 100. All the things he should be doing. All those days I doubted myself, wondering if I was “doing it right” gone, he is growing, he is learning, he is beautiful, just like his older siblings. Upwards and Onwards!! I used to wonder if things would get “easier” but I discovered it didn’t get easier, it just got “different” and to not wish those years away. It feels like forever when you live them, but just a moment when you think back. You can do it Mammas!! Cherish it while you can.

  • Te baby of my family is 24 this year :,( One of my babies now has a baby of their own :) They sure don’t stay babies for long


  • It does change doesn’t it… not a day but gradually for us.. sometimes I still see the 2 year old and realize it isn’t totally over!


  • Gosh I feel that way about my 2 year old at times… they just grow up way too fast. Luckily I have a 6 week old as well so I can get my baby fix!


  • Such a sad but happy moment when your baby moves onto the next stage


  • My youngest is 6 too & I’m also experiencing similar feelings.


  • I think it doesnt matter how old your youngest is they will always be your baby… Although its great seeing them reach all the acheivements..


  • So true. I keep reminding myself on the hardest of days that it isn’t forever, and I miss when they’re little.


  • I really enjoyed once school stared. Enjoy!!
