I was thinking about all the times that you guys have survived our parenting. All those times when we messed up and you guys were okay despite us.
Item #1: That time in the hospital after Kitten was born when we spent 2 hours trying to console her before finally desperately calling for the nurse who told us, “Ok, so you know you’re going to have to change her diaper every once in a while.” Oooooh.
Item #2: That time when Daddy changed Kitten’s diaper after a midnight feeding and I got up with her in the morning wondering why she was wearing two diapers.
Item #3: That time when I was still getting used to walking around with a baby in my arms – elbows out, their head sticking out past your elbow…it’s an adjustment in width. I may have knocked baby Kitten’s head into the door jam..more than ounce. Sorry.
Item #4: That time when baby Buddy made an unauthorized jump from mushed up baby food to solid food by swiping his sister’s chicken strip and eating half of it before I noticed.
Item #5: That time I sent toddler Kitten to school in leggings and a dress…with her pajamas still on underneath. How does one even do that? Without noticing??
Item #6: That time when I thought Buddy was just a red-cheeked little boy, but it turned out he was allergic to my lip balm. He was literally allergic to my kisses.
Item #7: That time when I took a picture instead of helping you. I’d do it again.
It’s amazing you’ve come as far as you have, kids. Hang in there. We’re not done yet 😉
