You know how some mothers sweetly reminisce about the days their kids were toddling around in bibs and diapers?
Yeah. That’s not me.
The truth is that I’ve been hurrying Maya along from one milestone to another since the day she was born. And really, the only thing that’s stopped me from throwing a party when Maya achieves another step towards independence is the fact that I fear people will think I’m totally inappropriate.
But really, how could I not want to celebrate retiring the enormous car seat that took up half my car? And is it crazy that saying goodbye to the giant Bugaboo Strollerthat refused to fold properly and fit into my freaking trunk was the happiest day of my life?
In any case, the milestones continue: just this past week I could barely contain my excitement because not only did Maya put on her own lotion and pajamas after I gave her a bath, but her teacher told me that Maya is now supposed to do her homework independently!
I realize this post probably makes no sense to people who don’t have kids. It probably makes even less sense to all the dedicated and loving mothers who accidentally stumbled across my blog. To everyone else? Thank you for understanding where I’m coming from.
