One thing I've learned as a (forever rookie) parent is that when you say good-bye to something, you always say hello to something else.
Good-bye bottles! No more making and washing 16 bottles a day!
Um... hello, sippy cups.
Good-bye immobile babies crying because they are bored!
Um... hello, mobile toddlers into everything.
Um... hello, pee on my bathroom floor.
So I've learned this lesson right? I've learned it over and over in the last 5.5 years. So why what this a surprise to me:
Good-bye dressing kids now that they are old enough to consistently dress themselves to the correct temperature.
Um... hello, daily check to make sure they are not going to school COMMANDO.
