I'm the mother of a toddler?
Anyway, that's according to the parenting website I read today. I find it very hard to believe that MY tiny baby is a toddler. How can this be, really? He was JUST born wasn't he? I guess when your baby is walking, he can be considered a toddler...makes sense I guess. Why did't any older, wiser, mother who has been through birthdays warn me that this part of parenting can be so hard?
I've taken care of hundreds of babies, I understand growth and development. I know my son is growing up, but why can't I just accept it? I cried yesterday, it was his birthday. My wonderful husband rubbed my shoulder in his sleeping stupor and said, "Don't worry honey, that's why we'll just have more. Don't cry". He hates it when I cry.
I guess I can fully understand now how older people always tell me, "Don't blink, life just goes by soooo fast". Thank you Jesus for this wonderful life and help me to enjoy every toddling moment!
