Milestones are a funny thing, you have the first step and first word(s). But to me, these hardly touched a nerve. Every child (or close enough) do these things! So it struck me a little odd when my son reached another one tonight, and I could just feel a little bit of his childhood slipping through my fingers. His milestone?
He buttoned his own shirt.
I know. I know. Another one of those 'well it's going to happen' moments. But for whatever reason, this one affected me.
Prior to bedtime this was naturally preceded by going to the bathroom with him, and having him explain 'My pee is big, yours is small'...
Ahh children, they never grow up fast enough. :P
