As a parent, I am always aware of the milestones my children cross. Sitting up, rolling over, crawling, walking, eating solid food, potty training, first tooth, first time sleeping through the night, first word, and so on. Last weekend we passed three very important milestones in our household.

1. My daughter figured out how to squat and pee outside without getting urine all over herself. We have now been freed from the frantic search for a toilet near the park or playground, all we need are a couple of shrubs.

2. Both children showed that they can climb onto swings, get started moving and achieve their desired swinging height without any adult assistance. I no longer have to spend the entire time at the playground pushing the kids on the swings. On the downside, I will no longer have my sole arm workout of the week and will likely see serious upper arm droopage forming over the next few weeks.

3. My son has figured out how to get all the breakfast fixings out of their various shelves in the kitchen. With a little coaching, he’ll be making his sister breakfast on the weekends and we’ll be sleeping until noon.

Life is good!

I'm a parent of two lovely (most of the time) children. I work full time out of the home and I don't cook well, bake, sew, or do crafty things. I keep my high heels and jewelry at my office because there's no point in having them at home.

    Good luck with that sleeping until noon thing. There’s not 5 minutes of child consciousness in this house that a “moommmyyyy!” isn’t uttered. Lol

  2. I hate to burst your bubble, but I agree with Comely Miss regarding the dream of sleeping until noon. 🙂 (Maybe when they’re in high school, but by then you’ll need to sleep in because you’ll have been up until all hours waiting for them to ge home safely!)

    “…upper arm droopage…” Good one!
