I’ve been thinking about when my kids were babies a lot lately. Like a crazy amount. Reminiscing about the “old days” when they were just wee little ones, figuring out the world and needing mom and dad so much.
My kids are 8 and 10 now, so those baby and toddler years are way behind us, but we love to take a little stroll down memory lane with the kids and share the adorable and funny things they did when they were babies.
You’ve heard it a million times, but you can never get that time back with your kids. And, while I’m happy with the kids they’ve become, I can’t help but miss those simpler times too.
For me, I loved those marathon snuggle sessions, now a thing of the past because they’re too big to sit and snuggle for more than 5 minutes with mommy! Also? And this may be totally crazy – but I miss the sound of that baby cry, which for the first child, overwhelmed me and seemed so loud in the middle of the night.
We took a poll on Twitter to find out what other parents miss about those days and got a fun mix of responses. Interestingly, a lot of them had to do with sleep!
