Parents, listen up. When you are sitting in that hospital room looking down at your perfectly swaddled newborn baby and that first person walks in and makes a comment about how fast this itty tiny baby will grow. Do not ignore them. Do not underestimate the power of their words. In fact, they are correct, time flies when it comes to your own children and before you know it, poof! they are a toddler.
One day I looked up and realized my “baby girl” (which I often refer to her as) was really not a “baby.” No, instead, she suddenly didn’t even look like a toddler but a kid. A kid!!
I mean, seriously? Look at this picture.
