I am writing this while he plays inside a playhouse and I’m outside waiting for him. Oh, my Nate is literally and figuratively not a baby anymore. 🙁
On His Own
I watch him run, have fun and do his own thing – on his own now. The last time we were here, he’s still not allowed inside without a guardian.
This reality hits me yet again – my son is growing up sooo fast! It seems like it was just yesterday when I shed my first tear after seeing him for the first time. Now, he’s slowly doing this on his own.
I hear so many advice from fellow moms already about treasuring every moment. And it’s true, 100%.
Although I am proud of his milestones, I am sad at the same time because I know that every achievement is one step closer to him being independent.
Soon, a grown up
Later on, he’ll be all grown up and will leave us…Oh, I don’t want to even think about it.
We all go through the selfless phase. I have and it wasn’t easy. Who knows, I might go through that again. And it will never be easy having to go through all of it again. I can’t imagine how tiresome it was and every time I look back, I can’t help but thank God that we made it.
Parenting is never easy and I’ll be honest I’m torn whenever I think about having another child. Having another one sounds really great but at the same time, my postpartum experience was a bit traumatic for me – at least for the first 2 years. So at this time, I don’t think I’m ready for another one and I don’t know when I’ll be but I know someday I will be.
For every mom who is too tired because of lack of sleep now, know that this will not last long. And one day, when you start seeing your child do things on his/her own, you’ll look back and say that everything was definitely worth it!
