Saying Goodbye to ToddlerhoodDanielle
Sunday marks my first born son’s fourth birthday. He will be leaving the official world of toddlerhood and heading into I guess what we can call childhood.
It seems like yesterday he was born, and now he is a pre-schooler who has the vocabulary of a ten-year-old and can sass me more than any normal child.
We are celebrating with a Build-A-Bear birthday party because his request for all his friends to come to his party really exceeded the maximum capacity of our house.
But I find myself so sad that my little boy is growing up… he is becoming a little man and it seems like every day that goes by he is becoming more of a kid, and less my little baby boy. Yes, even though he will be four on Sunday, he is my baby…
I think your first born child will always remain a baby in some sense to their moms right? Moms, please tell me I am not the only one stuck on this!
But even though Camden is growing up, I will still have a toddler in my house, and hanging out here at Toddler Times… I mean I have another two years till Ben turns four!
I feel like our next step is organized sports, school dances, and prom… Where has the time gone?
I remember bringing him home from the hospital in the snow, and putting him under the Christmas tree as a present. Bringing him on his first boat ride, and first trip to Fenway park.
Moms… chime in!
How do you feel every year as your first born gets older?
