Our key worker at nursery has suggested it’s time and my head is filled with two very different thoughts:
- She’s doesn’t seem to have been a baby for very long, she’s growing up so fast!
- Oh my god, there’s going to be piss and shit everywhere for weeks, how quickly is it possible to learn?!
It really does feel like a big step to her own “self sufficiency”. With every step, even at this tiny age, living grows and so does the fear if the inevitable “letting them go”.
They really do grow up very fast!
I got her out of her sleeping bag and there was shit everywhere. Thank god it had somehow been contained within her pyjamas, but everything below the waist was smeared with poo, and soon it had spread to my knees and legs as I kneeled in front of her.
As I cleaned up the stinking mess, a scene from the Adam and Joe show on 6music came to mind…
Happy Father’s Day dads!
